Target hops are a cousin of Challenger hops and have become a widely grown and well-established English hop variety. They are sharp and assertive with sage, citrus, and spicy characteristics. They are mainly used for bittering and to add spice during brewing.
Target hops are a great addition to any beer that needs a little bit of extra bitterness or spice. Their assertive flavour can really stand out in a hoppy pale ale or IPA, but they can also be used in more subtle ways in lagers or other styles. If you’re looking for something different to try in your next brew, consider giving Target hops a shot.
