Atlas is a bred by the Hop Research Institute in Zalec, Slovenia, Yugoslavia (Dr. Tone Wagner) and released in the 1970s. It is a cross between Brewer's Gold and a Yugoslavian male.
Together with Aurora, Ahil, and Apolon was considered to be Super Styrian hops when released. This meant they were similar to Syrian (Fuggle) but had a higher alpha content. But, in fact, it is bread from Brewer's Gold, making the classification mute.
