Motueka has a complex character with distinct lemon/lime characteristics accompanied by notes of other citrus and tropical fruit.
We harvest our Motueka along a fairly wide spectrum, from zesty bright to more sweet lemon lime with lots of tropical. Our early harvest Motueka has a bright lemon-lime profile and our late harvest Motueka swings to super tropical, with no dankness but more sweet lemon lime character. It will be more balanced and overall complex than an early harvest Motueka, without the lemon lime character. Later harvest Motueka can add some nice tropical top notes to a beer. We find a lot of people use Motueka in their hazy IPAs. It seems to be extremely successful at producing appealing beers, especially in combination with one or two other hops.
