Can someone help me figure out why? It's well watered and in a sunny spot.

I'll post a picture when I get home. iPhone won't let me.

No picture and no description beyond "wilting" means we can't help yet.

Photo plus details.

- how long ago was it planted; if new, cutting or rhizome, etc?
- are the leaves showing signs of chewing by pests? or rotting?
- are any other plants nearby exhibiting similar problems?

Here is the picture. I planted 4 plants. Hallertauer, Nugget, EKG and Centennial. The Cent is growing great, the EKG is starting to bush out instead of climb, the Nugget (which is right next to the Hall) just broke ground about two weeks ago.

I can't see any sign of insects; no visible bugs, no holes or chewed edges. These were all planted the day after Memorial day.

It looks like Downy Mildew.

Looks really dry to me. The mulch could be taking all the nutrients away from plant. Are you using any fertilizers? Check the website out http://5e.plantphys.net/article.php?ch=t&id=289 . I like to mound my hops, then i can put more compose and clippings on it.

I just recently mulched, and I've been watering a lot, so I don't think it's that. I didn't use any fertilizer, but I did mix in a shovelful of compost when I planted each rhizome.

Check my Gallery and look at my hops. They are all first year, each rhizomes was only 2 inches. look at my mixure that I made of top soil\chiken sh&*\peat moss\grass clippings. If I were you i would get some miricle gro an see what happens. A little iron also wouldn't hurt. I put Iron fertilizer with micrnutrients, it will cover alot of soil defficiencies

Overwatering is not a good think.
