Nectaron® is the result of 17 years of craftmanship; this triploid aroma type was developed in collaboration with New Zealand Plant & Food Research. It is a full sister to Waimea.
Nectaron® evokes the unmistakeable aromas of the tropics, captures the senses and tantalises the taste buds; displaying high levels of tropical fruit characters of pineapple, passionfruit, stone fruit (peach) and citrus (grapefruit). Already proven to add abundant character to styles such as Strong Pale Ales and IPAs, this is a hop that can sing by itself or add an undeniable 'wow' to any brew in the making. Nectaron® shines best when used late or when dry hopping.
Nectaron® is at home in any modern beer style where punchy tropical fruit characters are desirable. The generous flavour of Nectaron® has been successfully trialled in big brew styles such as IPA and NEIPA varieties. Its intensely rich characteristics are sure to excite the most innovative brewers. Not for the fainthearted, Nectaron® delivers a consistent dose of high quality tropical hop aroma every time.
