Southern Cross is a New Zealand dual purpose hop that has an alpha acid range from 11 to 14% and a beta acid range of 5-7%. It can be used successfully during all parts of the brewing process.
Southern Cross has aromas of citrus and tropical fruit with hints of lemon zest, pine, lime and spice. Due to its essential oil content it will deliver a delicate balance of citrus and spice when added at the end of the boil.
It is a great choice for use in Pale Ales, IPAs, and Lagers.
