Pilgrim’s siblings, First Gold and Herald, are both dwarf hops, but Pilgrim is not. It is a cultivar of Wye College. Despite its high cohumulone of 38% of its higher alpha acids (up to 13.5%), it is said to have first-rate bittering, aroma and flavor characteristics. Round and full bodied with classic English bitterness, its high humulene and selinene contribute to its flavor notes. Its flavor and aroma have been described as notes of grassy herbs, grapefruit/citrus, berries and pears, to the more exotic spice, cedar and honey. It has good storage stability, an excellent yield potential, and resistance to wilt and mildew. Great in the boil from beginning to end.
