Origin: England. A signature variety of the English brewing tradition, Challenger is a granddaughter of Northern Brewer with some Northdown in its lineage as well. It was released in 1972 by Wye College. Although it has limited acres elsewhere, most of this hop’s production remains in the UK.

Usage: Dual purpose. As a standalone hop or part of a blend, Challenger excels for boiler, hop back, and cask additions. Right at home in any English ale formulation, it has also found application in some west coast-style American IPAs.

Aroma & Flavour Characteristics: Mild to moderately intense spice with elements of evergreen and ripe fruit; adds a bright, grassy character as a dry hop. Blends well with earthy or floral varieties.

Botanical Classification:
Family: Cannabaceae
Genus: Humulus
