Selected at Wye College, England in the 1950’s, Janus was originally praised for its early harvest qualities. Its extremely low yield however led it to being discarded as a commercial prospect in 1992. To date, it has never been used for breeding either. It is a cross between a Eastwell Golding, a New Mexico Wild American hop and other unspecified English hops. Janus exhibits very high myrcene potential and is said to have a pleasant, European aroma.
