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

Used 8ozs in a 6 gal single hop IPA, 5 in the boil/flameout, 3 for dry hop. Very subtle tropical and citrus. Kinda underwhelming. However for a blonde, belgium, or pils this hop might be what your looking for.

great multipurpose hop
One of my favorite hops to use, fruity and citrusy but completely different from typical citrusy american hops. works very well with a wide range of hop based styles.
