Nelson Sauvin™ (NZ)
This cross between New Zealand Smoothcone and wild hops makes for a versatile brewing ingredient. A high alpha and distinctly fruity aroma make Nelson Sauvin hops totally unique.

The alpha acid range of 12% to 13% offers a great bittering quality that is balanced by the intense fruitiness.
