Origin: Pilgrim was bred at the Hop Research Institute of Wye College and is sister to First Gold and Herald. It was released in 2000.
Usage: Pilgrim performs very well as a dual purpose hop, and is often compared to Target because of its alpha acid levels. However, is high oil content (particularly humulene and selinene) give Pilgrim a much hoppier aroma.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Surprisingly fruity for an English hop, Pilgrim exhibits prominent citrus (think lemon and grapefruit) with pear and berry aromatics, underscored with expressive earthy, woodsy spice and herbs.
To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
Because demand is higher than supply, purchase of this hop is limited to 12, 8 oz packages per month to each retail location. Please call us if you have any questions.
