Interpretive Summary: Brewers consistently look for new and unique hop (Humulus lupulus l.) cultivars that possess excellent flavor profiles and are cost effective to produce and utilize. Most aroma-type cultivars are low yielding and poorly adapted across much of the United States. In order to fill this gap, the USDA-ARS hop breeding program developed and released USDA ‘Triumph’ to the public on April 19, 2019. The defining characteristics of this hop cultivar are high yields, and excellence in brewing multiple beer styles. It has been utilized in lager, pilsner, pale ales and amber ales along with IPA brewing with excellent consumer reviews. The release and registration of this new cultivar provides brewers with a new, high-yield, excellent aroma-style hop cultivar that is widely adapted across the United States and provides superior flavoring for beer brewing.

Technical Abstract: Brewers consistently look for new and unique hop (Humulus lupulus l.) cultivars that possess excellent flavor profiles and are cost effective to produce and utilize. Most aroma-type cultivars are low yielding and poorly adapted across much of the United States. In order to fill this gap, the USDA-ARS hop breeding program developed and released USDA ‘Triumph’ to the public on April 19, 2019. The defining characteristics of this hop cultivar are high yields, and excellence in brewing multiple beer styles. USDA Triumph arose from a cross made in 2000 between USDA ‘Nugget’ and ‘USDA 21110M’. USDA Triumph has exhibited high yields across multiple environments. It has been utilized in lager, pilsner, pale ales, and amber ales along with IPA brewing with excellent consumer reviews. The release and registration of this new cultivar provides brewers with a new, high-yielding, excellent aroma-style hop cultivar that is widely adapted across the United States and provides superior flavoring for beer brewing.
