Super Alpha was bred from the New Zealand Smooth Cone variety and enjoys its popularity primarily in New Zealand. As the brewing industry has changed, Super Alpha has gone from a strictly bittering hops to a dual-use hop as its grassy, piney, citrus character became noticed. It is known for its clean and crisp bittering despite its fairly high cohumulone content of up to 39%. This hop has recently been renamed to Dr Rudi.
