Pacifica is a popular aroma hop known for its distinct spicy floral aroma, often used in brewing various types of beer. When added to a late boil, Pacifica can provide delightful notes of orange, enhancing the overall taste and aroma profile of the beer. If Pacifica is not available or a brewer wants to try a different hop with a similar profile, Liberty is a suitable substitution.

Originating in New Zealand, Pacifica is a triploid aroma hop bred through open pollination with Hallertau Mittlefruh. HortResearch released it in 1994, and it has since become a staple in the brewing community. The hop matures during the early season, and it offers good storage qualities, making it an ideal choice for brewers.

The Pacifica hop comes from New Zealand, and it features unique characteristics, such as citrus, herbal, and orange flavors. With an alpha acid content ranging between 4-8% and a beta acid content of 5-6%, Pacifica provides a well-balanced flavor profile. The cohumulone content lies between 23-27, and its oil composition consists of 12-13% myrcene, 50-51% humulene, and less than 1% farnesene. The total oil content is about 1.0ml/100g, with a flavor intensity of 6.
