New Zealand’s Green Bullet hops were produced as a result of cross pollination with the Smooth Cone varietal from the same region. First released in 1972, this versatile hop serves as a dual purpose ingredient, offering bittering and aromatics to a brew.
Green Bullet hops will have an alpha acid range of 11% to 14%, and are commonly used in ESBs, IPAs, and Lagers. A rich aroma of pine, spice, and dark fruits like raisins can be expected. Try combining or replacing Green Bullet hops with Hallertauer Tradition or Mt. Hood hops for a nice complex flavor.
