Target hops are a classic English variety that was bred at Wye College and released in 1972. Target is Challenger’s cousin, sharing the same parent of Northern Brewer, but Target is much more assertive and powerful. Target offers a robust citrus aroma that has been rediscovered by American craft brewers for big IPAs. Target is also noted for its aroma of fresh sage that makes it a fine complement to any West Coast IPA.

Target hops are well-suited for assertive IPAs, Pale Ales, and NEIPAs, but is also commonly used as a bittering hop.

An excellent high alpha variety which gives bitterness at a very competitive price. Tends to be too harsh for aroma purposes late in the boil but has produced very good results when used as dry hop pellets in the cask.
