Pilgrim is a British dual purpose variety 'high hop' with an alpha acid percentage ranging from 9-13%. Bred at the Hop Research Institute of Wye College, it has the same father as First Gold and Herald. It has performed well as a replacement for other dual hops. It is often compared to Target because of its alpha acid levels. However, higher levels of Humulene and Selinen levels comparable to Challenger give Pilgrim a much hoppier aroma. From early storage trials, stability of the alpha acids in Pilgrim seems to be excellent.
