If it makes you feel better, I've got 17 different types growing. My Fuggle hit 6' tall, and stopped growing. They are getting "bushier", but not taller. Looks healthy, very thick, but it won't break 6'. Next to it, my 1st year Newport is maybe 22' tall. I keep scratching my head and reminding myself to not compare different types of hops.

Well I have a 1st yr Mt. Hoods had a very similar problem to you. They were the first out of all my 1st year rhizomes to grow, and grew noticeably every day, and were much thicker, overall healthier looking bine. Then about 2-3 weeks ago they started to get eaten by bugs, tip snapped off, and they stopped growing for about 2 weeks at4 ft tall. I picked a few leaves, sprayed sme inseciticidal soap a few times, and a few days ago I notice they're sprouting side arms which I'm told is where the flower buds gros, so all seems well with patience

If you can see it, look to see if the growing tip has been damaged. I had one of my first year bines do that, shot up to about 5 feet in a week, and then nothing. I looked and saw the growing point had been bent, probably a bird crunched it while landing on the twine. After the side arms came out I trained them up the twine, but it looks like that is as tall as that bine is getting this year.
