Cascade was released in 1972 by the USDA in Oregen, it is named for the Northwest mountain range. Primarily developed at Oregon State University East Farm in Corvallis. Cascade is a cross between Fuggle and Serebrianka (Russia) and open pollinated in 1955. Cascade is the first superstar of American hops and paved the way for bold hops in today's brewing scene. The ratio of alpha to beta acids is similar to European aroma hops.
Early Prolific has an unknown breeding. It is assumed that it was from a mass selection at Wye College, England. May be useful for breeding of aroma hops but no longer grown commercially due to poor growth and yield (similar to Early Promise in this regard).

Eastern Green was bred from Toyomidori and open pollination in Japan by Dr. Atsushi Murakamin, of the Kirin Brewery Hop Research Center in Iwate, Japan, in the mid 1980s. Has high yield and growth but it is unknown if it is grown commercially.
Nordgaard, an Belgian (possibly Danish) land race variety, is no longer grown commercially. It was used in the 1970s for breeding purposes by Dr. Tone Wagner at Zalec, Slovenia.
Bred at Wye College in Kent, England in 1984, released commercially in 1996. Pioneer is a dual purpose hop.
Tolhurst was bred by James Tolhurst of Horsmonden, England in the 1880s. No longer grown commercially, it has a high farnesene content but has low yields, poor storage and growth.
Universal has an unknown heritage but it expected to be a Saaz clone. Developed at the Hop Research Institute in Zatec, Czechoslovakia. No longer grown commercially in Czechoslovakia but grown in the United States since 1988, becoming a darling on the craft beer since since the 1990s.
Wuerttemberger is a German hop that is possibly related to Saaz and Tettnanger. It is no longer grown commercially.
