This article discusses a specific variety of hops. For general information about selecting, using or propogating hops, see the main hop page

A cross between Whitbread Goldings Variety and a wild North American hop, Progress has moderate bittering power along with great aromatics. It has a mild spicy or woody character somewhat similar to Fuggle (British), but is slightly sweeter, and usually provides a softer bitterness in beers of all types. This variety has a potential, not yet fully exploited, to provide excellent beer flavours.
