Newport is the offspring of Magnum and a USDA male variety. Oregon State University and the USDA successfully bred it in 2002 in an effort to address concerns over mildew resistance. It was said to have helped save Northwest US hops production around this time when mildew issues threatened multiple hops varieties.
Newport features flavors ranging from wine-like to balsamic but with its exceptionally high alpha content, it is mostly used early in the boil for clean bitterness.
