Challenger(GB) Pellets

Description

A signature variety of the English brewing tradition, Challenger is a granddaughter of Northern Brewer with some Northdown in its lineage as well. It was released in 1972 by Wye College. Although it has limited acres elsewhere, most of this hop s production remains in the UK. As a standalone hop or part of a blend, Challenger excels for boiler, hop back, and cask additions. Right at home in any English ale formulation, it has also found application in some west coast-style American IPAs. The flavor and aroma feature mild to moderately intense spice with elements of evergreen and ripe fruit. As a dry hop, Challenger adds a bright, grassy character. It blends well with earthy or floral varieties.

  • Hop Type: Dual-Purpose
  • Origin: United Kingdom
  • Alpha Acid: 6.3%
  • Similar Varieties: East Kent Goldings, Perle, Styrian Goldings
  • Common Styles: British-style Ale and Lager
