So I have 8 oz. of these New Zealand hops coming my way next week and was hoping to hear some ideas about what type of brew to use them in. I'm planning on throwing at least a half ounce into a Pale Ale I'll be brewing next week but would love to hear some suggested styles or maybe even a recipe or two utilizing them

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, I'd like to throw a bunch in a pale. I'd probably go with that and maybe one other hop that would compliment it, but from the description, it looks like they'd stand pretty well on their own.

I was thinking of using it with some Fuggles but I'm not real sure. I may only use the Sauvin for the pale ale and see how it turns out. With 8 oz I'll have plenty left over to fool around with later on anyway. Perhaps a wacky stout of some sort.

I have been using these for a few years now. They really are still a hidden gem and it surprises me that they have not blown up more. I think half the problem is the bogus description that says they impart wine like characteristics that maybe turns people off.

I never did much experimentation with them, After i got my first pound of pellets and got a smell of them my mind instantly told me that these are the hop to use with IPA's & Pale ales and never wondered. They pack a lot of punch, you don't have to use a crap ton to get good results in the in the flavor and aroma department it always come through really good in the finished beer.

WHERE CAN ONE BUY THESE? I sent an e-mail to the NZ hops people asking if anyone in the States was selling them and got no reply.

I'm interested in the Riwaka and the Motueka variety. Where do I send my money?

I ordered some hops from CraftBrewer. Made a pale ale with Galaxy for bittering and Rakau for flavor/aroma. Tastes like mago/passionfruit. It's crazy.
