These hops are a cross between New Zealand (2/3) and Saazer (1/3) breeding selections. The main use of Motueka is for aroma, with a strong note of lemon lime and tones of tropical fruit. Some hops that display similar characteristics are Saaz and Sterling, and they are most commonly used in ales. These hops provide both unique aroma and flavor from the beginning additions of your boil to the end.
