Newport is an offspring of Hallertauer Magnum, and was successfully bred for mildew resistance. Fairly new on the block (2002), it carries an average alpha acid content of 16% combined with an alpha/beta ratio of 2:1. It has excellent high myrcene content, but an average cohumulone of, at times, 37% can make it a bit off-putting. It has wine-like flavors, but usually rather balsamic. It really helped save the Northwest U.S. hops production when mildew threatened many hops varieties. It is mostly used early in the boil for its bittering properties.
