Smuha: Rakau

Double New England IPA

Rakau is a relatively new hop variety from New Zealand. It can be used both in classic bitter IPA, as well as in hazy and juicy style variations. It contains copious amounts of aromatic oils, which transform beautifully and give our IPA its incredible smell of stone fruits and tropical fruits with hints of peach, apricot, pear, citrus, ripe watermelon and melon. As a result, our new “Smuha” resembles a real multifruit juice – bright yellow, thick, velvety, with an expressive smell and taste of sunny summer, which is just around the corner!
