CASCADE

Cascade Hops aroma and flavor is best described as American Pale Ale. There is also New Zealand,, Australian & Argentinean, as well as British and German Cascade where it has been used to breed the next generation of old world hops. This particular hop variety took life in 1972 and has certainly won some hearts in the brewing industry. Bred by the U.S.D.A in Oregon, Cascade Hops can be found overwhelmingly in a number of commercial US, UK & NZ beers.

Cascade hops contain moderate alpha acid content ranging from 4.5% to 7%. Its real strength in brewing is in the aroma, as it was the premier aroma hop developed in the U.S. The aroma of Cascade also comes with citrus, sometimes compared to grapefruit. This no doubt comes from the higher levels of myrcene. It carries some spicyness and black pepper to it as well. Farnesene also registers fairly high in Cascade, which is used in the perfume and food industry.

Cascade is  resistant to disease and fungus, but its inability to store well, makes it lose some points. However to brew with it fresh off the bine is a really good reason to grow it. It's parents include Fuggle and Serebrianker, which is a Russian variety. Cascade is one of the most important hops (in the U.S.) for making homebrews and commercial beers.

Our original plant used for the propogation of plants offered for sale on this web site was found growing wild in the Motueka area.
