This is the hop that made hops famous. It single-handedly defined the American Pale Ale style. Cascade is bursting with zesty grapefruit flavor and aroma from the high levels of myrcene oil. It lends a pleasant and balanced bitter, but is ideally used in late hop additions to maximize that bright flavor and aroma. The bright citrus is backed by some soft floral and spice, which rounds out the profile. Brewing with fresh leaf from this iconic hop is a real treat.
