Originating from the USDA-ARA breeding program, Cascade is an aroma-type cultivar bred in 1956 and released in 1972. It was developed by open pollination of a Fuggle seedling. Cascade is the most popular variety in craft brewing and is known for having a unique floral, spicy and citrus character with balanced bittering potential.
Aroma: Medium intense floral, citrus and grapefruit tones
Note: With Cryo Hops the Alpha Acids are almost double the Alpha Acids of the same variety of pellet hop.
The Alpha Acid content of our Cascade is 12.8% AA
