A Wye College breed from the Wye Omega line, Pioneer hops are also a sister to Herald hops. Best known for its bold lemon and citrus notes while still offering that traditional English herbal aroma. The general alpha acid range for pioneer hops is 8% to 10%, and it makes an excellent addition to IPAs and Bitters. This clean bittering characteristic also works well in Pale and Seasonal Ales, as well. If you can’t get your hands on this versatile British hop, try substituting with readily available East Kent Golding. Taste Pioneer hops in commercial brews like Fredricksburg Brewing Company’s Pioneer Porter.
