    New Zealand Green Bullet™

    An all-purpose Southern Hemisphere variety with a proven track record in the brewhouse.
    SKU: HGRB0044

    Breeding/Development: New Zealand. A high-alpha hop bred from open cross-pollination of Smoothcone, Green Bullet™ was first released in 1972. As with many New Zealand varieties, it possesses a level of aromatic oils unusual for high-alpha varieties bred in this era.
     
    Brewing Application: While Green Bullet™ was originally bred for bittering power, its pleasingly mellow and resinous oil profile lends itself well to late additions in English ale styles. It is regarded as a “workhorse” in its native New Zealand and is widely used there.

    Sensory: Moderately intense with a distinct floral, resinous character reminiscent of Styrian Goldings, layered with hints of musky Southern Hemisphere fruit.

    Botanical Classification:
    Family: Cannabaceae
    Genus: Humulus
    Species: Lupulus

    Maturity: Late

    Yield: Moderate to good
