Superdelic hops produces unique flavours and aromas of Red Fruit, Candy/ Lolly, Citrus, and Tropical Fruit, offering brewers something totally different to use in their craft.
It is a versatile hop that can be used as a single hop addition and has great synergies in combination with other hops. Pairs well with Citra, Simcoe, Nelson Sauvin, Motueka and Riwaka.
Superdelic is a triploid variety (cultivar) that was crossed by Dr. Ron Beatson in 2012 through the NZ Hops partnership breeding program with Plant and Food Research (PFR). Superdelic was developed from both European and North American ancestry. After showing promise in clonal selection trials, and showing sensory attributes of berry fruit in pilot brewing trials, Superdelic was fast-tracked into the NZ Hops trial hop farm programme in 2017, due to its unique aroma and chemistry profile.
