Oregon, USA. The granddaddy of American craft brewing hops, Cascade was bred in 1956 through a USDA program and first released in 1972. Its ancestry includes English Fuggle and Russian Serebrianka. Today it is the most widely-grown American aroma hop.
The classic finishing hop for countless craft ales, Cascade’s unmistakable character is right at home in pale ales, blondes, wheats, IPAs, stouts, porters … pretty much any American craft style. Can serve as a soloist in single-hop formulations.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics:
Famously citrus-like (particularly ruby red grapefruit) with prominent floral tones. Medium intensity.
To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
