Wakatu (aka Hallertau Aroma) is a New Zealand hop with a lot going for it! An alpha to beta acids ratio of 1:1, along with low cohumulone, are accompanied by nicely balanced oils which give this an understated floral aroma atop fresh lime. Alpha acids average 9%, so it makes for an outstanding dual-use hop. It can be added at any stage of the process from first wort to dry hopping. It has also been noted for its flavor stability. The cultivar is 2/3 Hallertauer Mittelfrüher and 1/3 New Zealand male.
