Wye Target

Great Britain

DESCRIPTION

Wye Target was bred at Wye College and released in 1976. It has a very high bitter value, very good stability and average aroma intensity. Target is a flexible hop that may be used to effectively bitter a wide variety of Ales and Lagers and is unusually effective for dry hop aroma in IPAs, and potentially Pilsners too. It would also lend itself well to Saison.
