Pilgrim has a deeply fruity, spicy, yet unusually pleasant, lemon/grapefruit aroma with flavour characteristics including verdant berries and pears.
As a bittering hop it provides a refreshing, full-bodied and rounded bitterness.
About this Hop
With a much hoppier aroma due to its higher levels of Humulene and Challenger-like Selinene, it works well as a bittering or late aroma hop.
Bred at Horticulture Research International (HRI), Wye College in the UK, Pilgrim was a new variety released in 2001. With its plump and oval cone structure, it is highly tolerant to wilt and has a good resistance to both powdery and downy mildews. It has excellent storage stability of the resins.
