An update, I planted 2 rhizomes and one has popped up. It's doing fine but I'm thinking I may want to still provide more shade for it.

Here is some more follow up:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f92/phoenix-second-year-hops-116785/

Essentially, if you get them to survive 1 year, they'll continue to come back even if they get scorched to the ground in July. In September they'll come back but obviously without any appreciable hop yield.

Despite our intense sun, we just don't get enough hours of daylight as they do in the PACNW. The hop cones you get are considerably smaller.

I have hops in the Payson/ Christopher Creek area and they don't suffer the heat, but the yield is still smaller than other parts of the country.

Thanks Rob. I did harvest about 1oz. last year from the Cascade. They were starting to get yellow spots and were quite small compared with other parts of the country in the pics I've seen here on HBT.

Any update on these? Success in a batch? I'm in the east valley and I want to put some on the N side of my house, and try and keep them out of the sun as much as possible, 10-4 is the worst.
