Super Alpha (Dr. Rudi) Hop Pellets (NZ) - 1 oz
This New Zealand hop (recently renamed Dr. Rudi in honor of the "father of New Zealand hops") is a seasoned veteran of the craft brewing scene in the Southern Hemisphere, released originally in 1976. It is a high-alpha triploid bred from an open cross of smoothcone. It has moderate aromas and flavors, predominately sweetly grassy with overtones of lemongrass, pine sap, and dried fruit.
Intended as a bittering hop, like most New Zealand hops, Super Alpha makes a great late addition or dry hop.
