Flyer is still on trial and has not yet been released for commercial growing. It results from a cross made in 2002 between a high alpha-acid female breeding line and a low trellis-type male hop.
Following promising results from advanced trial plots during 2007 and 2008, it was established on licensed farm trials with Wye Hops during 2009. The produce from the advanced plots was used for successful pilot brewing trials in 2010.
Single hop listing
I’m a rare English hop with unusual aromas and flavours are of stone fruit, liquorice, toffee and citrus with a spicy, resinous bitterness. Take a chanced on me – you won’t regret it.
