Originally developed by Horticulture Research International at the UK's Wye College, the Progress hop was created to replace the Fuggle hop, which has had a history of weakness towards the hop disease Wilt. Despite showing a higher resistance to Wilt, Progress proved susceptible to other hop diseases, and never actually replaced the Fuggle hop. The plant itself is tall and has a cone that looks similar to the Fuggle cone, but is more open.
This hop is dual-purpose with bittering abilities and is known to impart earthy and citrusy flavors, as well as sweet berry and juniper, and is sometimes described as spicy.
