The variety has proved to be quite unusual with a very pleasant, lemon, citrus aroma. Initial brews have proved to be very successful with very distinctive, hoppy characteristics. Pioneer, a dual-purpose hop, is suitable for any usage as it combines a pleasant aroma with a moderately high alpha acid content.

A hop that exceeded expectations
While clearly British in its subdued and nuanced flavor, this hop featured plummy, jammy notes that I didn't expect. I made a Best Bitters with it that is just endlessly drinkable and enjoyable. I fully expect to purchase some more of this intriguing hop soon. While it won't set the world on fire, it will definitely add a new and welcome dimension to your British-style ales.

great price for this hop, but the flavor wasn't my favorite
I would only buy this again if trying to go for a specific flavor in a british ale; otherwise, it's not my favorite.

Pioneer Pellet Hops
This hop is similar to Target but, a much better aroma and it's bitterness is very smooth on the tongue. Has mild fruity flavors with some grapefruit or citrus. Can be used as an aroma or bittering hop. Makes a great pale or dark English beer.
