Riwaka™ is a New Zealand aroma hop that has an alpha acid range from 4.5 to 6.5% and a beta acid range of 4-5%. It is primarily used in late boil additions and as a dry hop. Owned by NZ Hops Ltd. and released under Cultivar/Brand ID 85.6-23. It is sometimes known as SaazD or D-Saaz.

It has a higher than average oil content - almost double - of its Saazer parent.

Riwaka™ can be described as having a powerfully fueled tropical passionfruit flavor with strong grapefruit and citrus characters. 

It is a great choice for use in Pale Ales, IPAs, and Pilsners, but it can also be showcased as a single hop beer to highlight its unique flavors and aromas.

Possible substitutions for Riwaka™ could include Saaz (CZ), Citra®, Calypso™, Centennial (US) and Motueka™.
