UK Target Pellets - 1 oz
Origin: England. Released by Wye College in the early 1970s, Target quickly became the most widely-grown variety in the UK. It is a cousin of Challenger and descendant of Northern Brewer and Goldings.
Usage: Bittering. Target’s high alpha delivers for sharply hoppy IPA, bitter, and pale ale, or for efficient bittering additions of darker and less-hoppy English or Belgian styles. It is also used by many UK brewers, alone or in a blend, as a singular late hop.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Intense and pleasantly pungent with dried citrus and sagebrush overtones. Whirlpool or dry hop additions play up a spice character.
