Admiral hops was released for commercial use in 1996 (other sources have it as 1998). It was created from a male Challenger plant and female plant in the Northdown family. It is the first UK hop to have an alpha acid over 15.0%. Works well as a replacement for bittering and aroma.
Developed and bred at Wye College by Professor Salmon, Bramling Cross is a cross between Bramling and Manitoban (a wild Canadian hop). It was released in 1951. Referred to as an English hop with an American aroma. Large quantities brings out the fruitiness in the Bramling Cross.
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).

Northdown was bred at Wye College in Kent, England as higher alpha acid alternative to the hops of the time (1970s). A result of breeding Northern Brewer and an unknown German varietal.
Phoenix is a high alpha varietal that performs well early in the boil. Bred at Wye College in Kent, England, it is an offspring of Yeoman. A replacement to Challenger as is more resistant to disease. Phoenix is considered a dual hop but typically used early in the boil for its clean bittering qualities. As a late addition it tends to be disappointing as it is mellow.
Bred at Wye College in Kent, England, with parents of First Gold and Herald. Pilgrim was released commercially in 2001. It is one of the most wilt resistant hops out today.
Bred at Wye College in Kent, England in 1984, released commercially in 1996. Pioneer is a dual purpose hop.
Pride of Kent was bred from Brewer's Gold and open pollination at Wye College, England by Professor E.S. Salmon. Mother of the popular Australian hop Pride of Ringwood.
Another hop developed by the United Kingdom's Wye College by the Horticulture Research International, Progress was created to replace Fuggle. Less susceptible to Wilt disease (the issue with Fuggle), Progress proved to be susceptible to other diseases. Bred in 1951 from Whitebread Golding female and US male. Commercially released in 1964.
Sunshine is an open pollination hop that has a complicated breeding process by Professor E.R. Salmon at Wye College, England, during the 1920s or early 1930s, which may have included some wild American varietals. Sunshine and open pollination breeding made it the mother of Comet.
Target was bred in the 70s, released to the public in 1992 by Wye College. The hop has lineage of Northern Brewer and Eastwell Goldings and related to Challenger. Has become a widely grown hop. Typically used to add aroma to English ale and lagers.
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.
