Brewing Application: 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.
Sensory: 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.
