According to British Hops “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. 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 in 2001.
