Originating from New Zealand, Superdelic was meticulously developed by Dr. Ron Beatson in 2012 through a partnership between NZ Hops and Plant and Food Research (PFR). The breeding process combined the best of both European and North American hop lineages. After demonstrating remarkable potential in clonal selection trials, particularly with its distinct berry fruit sensory attributes in pilot brewing tests, Superdelic was promptly introduced to the NZ Hops trial hop farm program in 2017. This decision was driven by its unparalleled aroma and chemistry profile.
The flavor profile of Superdelic is truly one-of-a-kind. It boasts a delightful blend of red fruit, candy, citrus, and tropical fruit characteristics. This makes it an enticing choice for brewers looking to introduce a fresh and unique taste to their craft beers. Notably, when used in a Hazy IPA, Superdelic unveils rich notes of ripe mango, sweet berry, and citrus. Furthermore, it has been observed to possess impressive biotransformation properties when dry hopped during active fermentation, enhancing its appeal to brewers.
