Rakau™ was rediscovered and re-released in 2011 by the New Zealand hop breeding program. It is bursting with a big fruit-forward character that is described by the breeder as "the whole orchard". Rakau™ is a clean and efficient bittering hop at 10 - 11% AA, but it is usually used in later additions to maximize the fresh fruit aroma. Myrcene oil is the highlight and makes up 56% of the total oils, lending flavors and aromas of apricot, plum, mango, pear, and other stone fruits. Some lighter notes of lime and pine are also present.

Alpha Acids: 10.5% 
Beta Acids: 3.0 - 6.0%
Total Oil: 0.8 - 2.0 ml/100g
