Pacific Hallertau was bred in New Zealand, and is said to be a distant relative of the Hallertauer varieties grown in Germany. Like Hallertauer Mittelfrüher, Pacific Hallertau is mostly known for its aromatic properties. It carries an alpha acid content of 3-6.5%. It has moderately low cohumulone and higher carophyllene which gives it a spicy, and decidedly floral aroma. It has a moderate yield, and good disease resistance which makes it a hopeful for new breeding projects. Word has it that Sierra Nevada brewery will debut Southern Hemisphere Harvest fresh hops ale in April of 2014 featuring Pacific Hallertau for bittering along with Southern Cross and Motueka, as its finishing hops.
