Green Bullet is a New Zealand hops variety, one of the first generation of new crosses attempted when Black Root Rot descended on New Zealand hops in 1949.
Bred from Fuggle and an unspecified native parent, it has a special zing that has become New Zealand’s stock-in-trade. It’s a dual-use hop with high alpha acids, yet it has a smooth taste and aroma of raisins and fruits, possibly due to its high myrcene content.
