Moutere is a big hop delivering high alpha acid with a generous weight of oil while its lower cohumulone provides a soft well-structured but solid bitterness. Sensory panels describe the flavours and aromas in the finished beer to be that of grapefruit, tropical and passionfruit. It has parentage with Southern Cross and a selected New Zealand male, and was released in 2015. The essential oil profile displays characteristics of intense fruit, citrus and resinous pine.
