    Target

    A utility bittering hop that moonlights as an aroma and dry hop for intense ESBs and IPAs.
    SKU: HTAR0044

    Breeding/Development: 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.

    Brewing Application: 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.

    Sensory: Intense and pleasantly pungent with dried citrus and sagebrush overtones. Whirlpool or dry hop additions play up a spice character.

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

    Maturity: Late

    Yield: 1200 - 1600 lbs/acre
