Origin: New Zealand. Super Alpha (recently renamed Dr. Rudi in honor of the “father of New Zealand hops”) is an elder statesman of the New Zealand craft brewing scene, released by HortResearch in 1976. It is a high-alpha triploid bred from an open cross of Smoothcone.

Usage: Intended as a bittering hop, but like many of its fellow New Zealand varieties that followed, Super Alpha possesses an oil profile that suits modern craft styles very well. Try in hoppy lagers, bitter and pale ale.

Aroma & Flavour Characteristics: Moderate. Sweetly grassy with overtones of lemongrass, pine sap, and dried fruit.

Botanical Classification:
Family: Cannabaceae
Genus: Humulus
Species: Lupulus
