Description Growth & Analytical Data Planting & Growing Instructions
 
Cascade (United States)

Cascade hop was bread by the U.S.D.A in Oregon in 1972 and can be found in an overwhelming number of commercial U.S. beers, its aroma and flavor is best summed up, as simply, American Pale Ale. Cascade is also grown in New Zealand and Argentina and has a citrus aroma, sometimes compared to grapefruit, which no doubt comes from the higher levels of myrcene. 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. Cascade is fairly resistant to disease and fungus, but its inability to store well, makes it loose some hops points. Its parents include Fuggle and Serebrianker, which is a Russian Variety.

Availability

Plants in 2 litre pots are available from late May until September, for UK mainland delivery only due to transport implications. Bare root hops plants are available for wider distribution from November.
