Pacific Sunrise™ is a real ‘fly-under-the-radar’ variety, and Hop Revolution is the first grower to plant it on a commercial scale. Pacific Sunrise™ was released by New Zealand's Hort Research in 2000.
Lemon and orange citrus drive this hop-forward variety, with tropical hits of melon and mango riding shotgun. Stone fruit and jammy sweetness support the initial front line aromatics alongside pleasant floral notes that help round out the overall profile. Subtle, yet notable hints of pine & berry refract through the aroma with lingering bits of hay and herbs that stay in their lane and are not distracting.
