Progress was bred in the 1950’s at Wye College in England and released in 1964 as a low-cost alternative for Fuggle hops. Slightly sweet with subtly bitter, it features pleasant and Fuggle-like floral aromas of grass, mint and earth.
It is the progeny of Whitbread Golding and an unnamed American male variety and is only grown commercially in England in limited amounts for a few specific breweries. Progress may also exhibit breeding potential on account of its exceptionally early seasonal maturity.
