FLAVOUR

Cascade Hops aroma and flavor is best described as American Pale Ale. The aroma of Cascade comes with citrus, sometimes compared to grapefruit. It carries some spicyness and black pepper to it as well. Cascade also registers fairly high in Farnesene presents as a subtle violet overtone. It works beautifully as a single hop.

HISTORY: 

Cascade's parents include UK Fuggle and a Russian variety Serebrianker. Cascade is one of the most important hops in the U.S.A for making home brews and commercial beers.

GROWTH/YIELD:  

Cascade is a strong grower with large cones and a good yield in it's first year. If you only have space to grow one plant Cascade would be it because it works in all styles of beer and especially Fresh Hop Ale.

EPIC PALE ALE

20 LITERS | ABV 5.4 | IBU 30 | SRM 8.4 | MASH EFFICIENCY 75% | PRE BOIL 24L | OG 1.049 | FG 1.008
MASH 90 MIN @ 67°C | SPARGE 3 LITERS | BOIL 60 MIN

NOTE:
If you know the IBU of your Cascade hops then use Cascade for bittering. If you are using home grown Cascade cones use Magnum pellets for bittering. Adjust in Beer Smith for IBU.

Epic Pale Ale uses USA Cascade. Home grown NZ Cascade with an IBU of around 7% AA will make a slightly different but still enjoyable beer. Again formulate the recipe in Beer Smith for your hops and equipment.

Read our article on the Influence of Terroir on Hop Flavour which includes grapical analysis of Cascade grown in different parts of the world.
Commercially grown NZ Cascade has been renamed Taiheke.
