Current AA: 4.8%
First impressions are a very lively aroma with lemon and lime followed by a background of tropical fruit.
Use in: Belgian Ales and gives a real edge to Cask Bitter. Also suitable for producing bigger more traditional style Lagers, especially Bohemian Pilsner.

Similar aroma to some of the popular US hops
Used this is in a hazy pale. Late additions, and it smells great. Farmhouse spot on with delivery and packaging.
Motueka is one of my all-time favorite hops. It has a unique lime peel and lemongrass quality about it, with some noble-like herbal-spice notes. It isn't terribly oily, and can get overshadowed in an IPA blend, but it is a staple for my APA's and hoppy lagers.
Works well for citrus flavor/aroma
Made a session IPA (38 IBUs & 4.8% ABV) using equal portions of this, Rakau and Kohatu with 0-15 min hop bursting to achieve IBUs as well as flavor and aroma. The lemon lime dominated the tropical fruit I hoped for, so plan for more lemon lime than tropical in the beer. Still a very nice hop in a citrusy/tropical hoppy beer.
New Zealand Hop
used this and two other New Zealand hops to make a very good IPA called Kiwi Express
