Comet’s flavor profile rests heavily on a strong accent of grapefruit. It does feature solid bittering capabilities and traditionally brewers considered it best suited as a bittering agent for American-style lagers. Recently however, there has been a surge in its use as a dry-hop in ales and IPA’s. Alpha Acid: 9.4% – 12.4%.
(Please note that the typical analysis reflects the average alpha values according to our hop growers/suppliers. Actual values can vary from one batch lot to the next. We provide these values for reference only. If bitterness is critical to your particular recipe we suggest that you order slightly more hops than your recipe calls for (to overcome any potential variance in the actual bitterness of our current batch lot). Alternatively, feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail to determine the exact alpha acid values for the hops you intend to order.)
