Use In Brewing
Green Bullet hops have been a signature of New Zealand brewing for decades. A dual-purpose/bittering hop with a spicy “dried fruit” character and solid finish.
A sleek smooth hop which has averaged over 12% alpha over a number of years and its aroma qualities match its excellent bittering power as New Zealand Breweries have proved in their award-winning products. Green Bullet has been likened to giving a Styrian style of flavour to the beer as it gives a pine/lemon crispness and an excellent aroma. This “go-to” hop is a traditional bittering type that now finds applications throughout the brewery from late additions through the hopback/ whirlpool and dry hopping.
