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.
Working great as a late addition, or used in dry hopping; Cascade shines through IPA’s and other hoppy beers with a distinct Grapefruit/Citrus aroma and flavour. For a unique addition it can also be added to American Porters or Barley wines!
