Sovereign is a fairly new English variety bred at Wye College, and is becoming well respected due to its complex, albeit delicate, aroma profile. It's aroma is said to be floral, grassy, and minty and is often incorrectly described as being similar to Fuggle. It is considered a medium alpha acid bittering hop. Its bittering qualities have been described as classic and well-rounded, but with a slight green-tea aspect. Sovereign is the granddaughter of Pioneer.
