Usage: Dual Purpose

Aroma: Cedar, green tea and sweet floral characteristics (as a late addition, it can provide crisp, fruity flavours).

Description: For an all-round dual purpose hop with a distinct British character, try Challenger. This variety was developed back in the 1970’s with parentage drawing from Northern Brewer and Zattler, and since then has become one of the most popular hops in the UK. It delivers a decent alpha acid level content and round, balanced flavour to be used as a bittering hop, while the late additions results in a refreshing mix of green tea, cedar and fruit aromas.

Thanks to its qualities, Challenger can be used at any stage of the boil and in dry hopping, both alone and in combination with other hop varieties. Works great for virtually any beer style both for bitterness and aroma.
