Target (UK) (Wye Target)
Target is a UK dual purpose hop with an alpha acid of 8.5-13.5% and a beta acid of 4-5.7%. It has a Cultivar/Brand ID of 11/65/92.
Whirlpool and dry hop additions of Target play up the spice notes of this hop. It offers crisp bittering and moderate alpha acids.
It has an aroma that includes intense and pleasantly pungent, dried citrus and sagebrush, spice, pepper, citrus marmalade, and tangerine. There are notes of fresh green sage, spicy and peppery tones with hints of the same citrus marmalade but ultimately it is defined by woody flavors of tobacco leaves, cognac, barrique and tonka beans with light vanilla notes. Elderflower and citrus aromas also come through.
It is a great choice for use in IPAs, Bitters, Pale Ales, Belgian Styles, British Lagers, English & British Ales, Lagers, Brown Ales, and Stouts.
If you are looking for a substitution we recommend Fuggle (UK)or Willamette (US).
