With a lineage derived from smooth cone hops, Dr. Rudi hops were released by the New Zealand Horticultural Center in 1976. Formerly known as Super Alpha, this dual purpose hop adds both bitterness and succulent aromatic qualities to a brew.
Containing an alpha acid content generally between 10% and 12% makes Dr. Rudi hops a perfect addition to any style Ale or Lager. The aroma you can expect to taste in your beer is vibrant lemongrass and pine with a touch of citrus peel. While there is no true substitute for Dr. Rudi, you could opt for Citra® hops in their place. Get a feel for the flavor by trying Arbor Ales Single Hop Dr Rudi IPA.
