    (9.5-11.5% AA)

    With its intense tropical and citrus characteristics, Nectaron® is NZ Hops' most playful hop.


    HORT4337, aka, Nectaron® was born in a collaboration with New Zealand Plant & Food Research. A triploid aroma type it is a full sister to Waimea.


    Perfect for any modern beer style that calls for a consistent dose of high quality tropical aromas. Its unique biotransformation is noticeably different between both American and English ale yeast strains. Nectaron® shines when used late or when dry hopping. Not for the faint hearted.


    Lagers, Pale Ales, IPA's, NEIPA and modern beer styles.

    Got a question?

    Maybe we've answered it...

    What is the Sound of Nectaron®?

    An interactive experience where brewers can experience Nectaron® with their ears as well as their taste buds. Just answer some questions and we'll create a custom Spotify playlist by blending the music you're into, with the flavour notes of Nectaron®. Magic.

    So, how does it all work?

    You sitting down? Good. This may take a while...
    First off, we found few clever people who know how to harness the magical powers of the Spotify API. What does API stand for? Application Programming Interface. In a nutshell it gives us all sorts of interesting information around the music brewers are listening to - like their top tracks and favourite artists. It also gives us detailed info about how each music track is categorised, based on attributes like tempo, danceability.

    Then, we created a series of questions which tweak those values based on how the brewers answer them. Think of the questions as a way to digitally brew using Nectaron®.

    If Spotify API can see my favourite songs, can it see my Internet search history?


    How can I taste Nectaron® with my actual taste buds?

    Please don't use a 💩 browser

    Well, this is awkward...
    Your browser isn't powerful enough to handlethe awesomeness that is The Sound of Nectaron®.
    Switch to Chrome, Safari, or 99.9% of the world.

    *OK, hear us out... We really wanted to make The Sound of Nectaron® work on your browser (probably IE, right?). But the folks at Microsoft decided that Explorer will be doing no more exploring come November 30, 2020. Rather than get in an kerfuffle with one of the most powerful corporations in the world, we thought to ourselves: let's just make The Sound of Nectaron® work on Chrome, Safari, & Firefox.
