CASCADE: Cascade hops are the signature hop for American Pale Ales. Cascade has a pleasant flowery, spicy, citrus-like quality with a slightly grapefruit characteristic. The hop is good for both flavor and aroma uses. It can also be used for bittering effectively, and can be used to make any beer, ale, and some lagers. Think lawnmowers! Cascade originated in 1956 from an open seed collection that included an English Fuggle, a Russian Serebrianker, and an unknown male. Well balanced, Beta 5.5 Alpha 6.3
Cascade has become overwhelmingly popular among brewers. It has an unmistakable citrus grapefruit aroma that makes it one of the easiest hops to recognize. Cascade is the aroma hop used in: Anchor’s Liberty Ale, Sierra’s Nevada Pale Ale, and almost every West Coast Ales.
