Cascade Pellet Hops (2 oz)
Cascade Hops contains moderate alpha acid content ranging from 4.5% to 7%. Its real strength is in the aroma, as it was the premier aroma hop developed in the U.S. This mettlesome grower bears a verdant, botanic bouquet. It carries some spicyness to it as well. The aroma of Cascade 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, which is used in the perfume and food industry.
Cascade is fairly resistance to disease and fungus, but its inability to store well, makes it lose some hops points. Its parents include Fuggle and Serebrianker, which is a Russian Variety. Cascade is one of the most accessible and ritual hops (in the U.S.), and rhizomes are readily available as well.
