Back in 2020 we were given the unique honour of being first to brew with the newly released Nectaron® hop – a variety which has since gone on to find a firm foothold in the brewing business, winning fans the world over.
The innovation hasn’t ended there. In partnership with Yakima Chief Hops®, NZ Hops Ltd have taken Nectaron® to the next level. Together, they’ve created a CRYO™ version of Nectaron® that’s taken the resins and aromatic oils from the hop cones and super-concentrated them. In other words, all the good stuff we want in our brew, dialled up to eleven.
We’re flattered that they’ve entrusted us once more, this time with the first shipment of Nectaron® CRYO™ to land on New Zealand shores.
The aromas and flavours explode out of this brew, with bold passionfruit, peach and grapefruit front-and-centre, sent straight to your senses. The CRYO™ pellets bring out something extra too, adding in an herbaceous hit and a pip fruit sweetness, complemented by a pillowy and juicy mouthfeel that really rounds out the experience.
This is everything you love about Nectaron®, taken to the Nect Level.
