Comet has an intriguing parentage of English Sunshine and a native American hop, which brings out a “wild American” flavor that some brewers have found objectionable. For this reason, it is no longer in commercial production and is difficult to find. Its flavor profile (grapefruity) and strong bittering capabilities found its use in American lagers for a while. It sports an alpha acid content of 8-11% but with as much as 42% cohumulone. In addition, it has a 65% myrcene profile while the other oils are very low.
