Comet (US)

Comet is a cross of English hops with a wild American variety and was first released in 1974. Commercial production actually ceased in the 1980s as it was phased out in favor of new super-high alpha varieties, but it has enjoyed a comeback thanks to its unique profile of citrus zest and fragrant grassy character, with undertones of wild forest fruit and old-school earthy bitterness.

Alpha Acid: 9.0-12.0%

Beta Acid: 30.-6.0%

Used For: Aroma, but can be used as a dual purpose.

Styles: IPAs, wild ales, farmhouse beers, and other cutting-edge craft styles (not my words, but made me laugh a little so why not be at the cutting edge of style) .
