Product Overview

Challenger Hop Pellets are 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.

To preserve freshness, all hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
