Comet has an intriguing parentage of English Sunshine and a native American hop, bringing out a "wild American" flavour. Released in 1974 by the USDA, Comet was originally bred to address the needs for higher alpha hops. Today, it is no longer in commercial production and is somewhat difficult to find.

Comet's flavour profile consists of zesty grapefruit, lemon and some orange notes. It does feature solid bittering capabilities and traditionally brewers considered it best suited as a bittering agent for American-style lagers. Recently however, there has been a surge in its use as a dry-hop in ales and IPA's.
