Cascade is the classic American hop that really started the hop craze. Defined by its citrus, and often more specifically, grapefruit flavor it is now sought out around the World. It is a true dual purpose hop that can be used for bittering, at the end of the boil, or the fermenter. Whole cone hops are typically the preferred format for dry hopping as they maintain contact with the beer by floating, they are easier to remove than pellets and they add a unique character to the beer.
With an alpha acid range of 4.5% to 7% and a fruity, citrus aroma with spicy notes, Cascade brightens-up IPAs, APAs, and other American Ales. It is easy to get your hands on both whole and pellet form Cascade hops that also work great for dry hopping, though you could substitute with Centennial or AMARILLO® hops. You can taste Cascade hops in many commercial brews like Racer 5 IPA by Bear Republic or Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper.
