Nectaron hops, a recent addition to the hop family from New Zealand, have been captivating brewers and beer enthusiasts alike with their unique and enticing characteristics. Developed by the New Zealand Plant and Food Research institute and released in 2018, these hops are a cross between Southern Cross and a New Zealand male hop plant, combining the best attributes of both parent varieties.

One of the key features that make Nectaron hops stand out is their captivating aroma. Intensely aromatic, they exude a delightful bouquet of tropical fruit and citrus notes, with dominant scents of passion fruit, pineapple, peach, and grapefruit. Additionally, they offer subtle hints of herbal and piney undertones, adding further complexity to their profile.

Not just limited to their aromatic qualities, Nectaron hops also boast a moderate to high alpha acid content, making them versatile for both bittering and flavoring purposes in brewing. This duality makes them an attractive option for brewers looking to achieve a balanced bitterness and a captivating aroma in their creations.

As hop-forward beer styles continue to surge in popularity, Nectaron hops have found their way into the hearts and recipes of brewers worldwide. Often utilized as late additions or for dry hopping, they shine in beer styles like India Pale Ales (IPAs) and New England IPAs (NEIPAs), elevating the fruity and citrusy flavors in these beers to new heights.
