Breeding/DevelopmentUSA. Comet is a cross of English hops with a wild American variety and was first released in 1974. Commercial production ceased in the 1980s as it was phased out in favor of new super-high alpha varieties. Recently however, it has enjoyed a comeback thanks to its unique profile.


Brewing ApplicationIntended as high-alpha bittering hop when first released, Comet has found a second life as an aroma variety in IPAs, wild ales, farmhouse beers, and other cutting-edge craft styles.


SensoryDominated by citrus zest and fragrant grassy character, with undertones of old-school earthy bitterness.
