Sussex was only discovered in 2005 in East Sussex. It has a powerful aroma and delicate tropical flavor but with high flavor retention. When it was discovered, it showed good promise and was bred for its mildew tolerance. But testing discovered that it has an oil content like no known variety, so it is suspect that it is an open pollination of a wild hop. In the brew it is very forwardly fruity. Harveys (known as The Sussex Brewers) released its Sussex Wild Hop brew in July of 2013, with Sussex as its primary hop. The Sussex hop place 3rd in the 2012 British Hop Competition.
