Comet is a cross of English hops with a wild American variety and was first released in 1974.

Commercial production actually ceased in the 1980s as it was phased out in favor of new super-high alpha varieties, but it has enjoyed a comeback thanks to its unique profile.

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

Dominated by citrus zest and fragrant grassy character, with undertones of wild forest fruit and old-school earthy bitterness.

To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
