About this Hop
Increasingly well regarded, Sovereign works well as a single hop and is a wonderful hedgerow variety with a medium alpha acid range and wonderfully complex aroma.
Bred from an open pollination made in 1995 at Horticulture Research International (HRI), Wye College in the UK and released in 2006, Sovereign is the grand-daughter of Pioneer and works well with Goldings in British bitters and pale ales.
