I just dawned on me what you're doing wrong! You're drowning the plant - quit watering it. Roots need air too. Too much water will do just what's happening to your plant.
I may be a few hundred miles west of you, but I know we've been having similar spring/summer weather. I haven't watered my garden yet this year, and I've got everything from tomatos, peppers, corn, hops, tobacco, flowers. Wait until you see the hops' leaf wilt in the hot sun, then wait a couple days more, now is the time to water - give it a good slow soaking. It's normal for leaf to wilt in the hot sun, check it in the early AM or late evening. Yeah, I know, August is coming with heat, no rain, concrete-hard soil, cracks in the yard, typical. You still shouldn't need to water the plant more than 2 or 3 times in August. Let the plant tell you when it needs a drink.
