NZ Motueka Hops
I used these hops as a dry hop addition to bump the citrus/lime the flavor of a IPA I was brewing and it more than did the job. Definite lime taste to the final product.

Perdition Pale Ale Hops
I tried this NZ hopalong with Nelson hops in my latest Pale Ale 6% west coast style. I had tasted beers with these hops before and I really enjoyed the aroma and flavors.

Although a little pricey, I felt the beer turned out fantastic and I'll definitely use them again.

Good tropical hop
Nice aroma and flavoring hop. Melon, passion fruit, hint of citrus: it’s all here.

Used these hops in a hazy IPA to bring a citrus zest flavor to the beer, it really shows through in the smell with MoreBeers quality Motueka pellets hops.

Has become my favorite
Motueka hops have become one of my favorite hops. I like to use them at 3oz 140 degrees and whirl pool them down to about 80 deg. Then I dry hop,3 oz, in kegs, starting about 5 days before serving and leave the hops in until the keg is dry.

Guests and family love the aroma and "there is just a hidden flavor" they say. They do not seem to get a grassy off taste. Get some and enjoy
