I was thinking Ultra, which is a cross of Saaz and Hallertauer, I think.  Continental-style hops.

I have an Ultra plant. It yields OK at the 42+ parallel in SE MI. Aroma is more like Hallertua + a little spice. It does mature late for me, that might be plant location.

There are several of the US noble-type varieties that grow well across the country. I have sterling and mt. hood here in Texas and both grow about as well as my nugget and cascade.
