Cascade Hops aroma and flavor is best described as American Pale Ale. Cascade contains 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. It carries some spicyness to it and also comes with citrus, sometimes compared to grapefruit. This no doubt comes from the higher levels of myrcene. Farnesene also registers fairly high in Cascade and can contribute violet overtones especially when used as a dry hop. One of the few hops that can make a complete beer by itself when used for bittering, flavour, aroma and dry hopping.

"Just to let you know that my latest brews using your Cascade Hops were rather outstanding and fantastic.
Not only is the fragrance of the beer unexpectedly nice, the taste is just beyond imagination, absolutely delicious.
It’s quite impressive what marvellous style of beer one can create with a good quality hops."
