Hop Challenger (UK) in pellets T90 in 5 kg bag - An excellent all round hop with good alpha and aroma properties. As the main copper hop, it

provides a refreshing, full bodied, rounded bitterness, which makes an excellent platform for a

late hop. As the late addition, it can give a very crisp, fruity character which has proved very

popular in many beers.
