We are not brewing experts in the least, however this is one of two brewing hops that come highly recommended for both growing and using in our climate zone.  If you are a home brewer, please report back and let us know about your success with this variety.

** This plant is still in experimental stage at The Urban Farm.  Experimenting and time is needed before getting Greg's stamp of personal approval.

Here is what we found online at beeradvocate.com:
Cascade is an aroma-type cultivar which originated as the first commercial hop from the USDA-ARS breeding program. It was bred in 1956 but not released for cultivation until 1972. It reached its peak in 1975 when it produced 13.3% of the total American crop. It was obtained by crossing an English Fuggle with a male plant, which originated from the Russian variety Serebrianka with a Fuggle male plant.

A very popular U.S. variety, with a moderate bitterness level and fragrant, flowery aroma. Cascade is often used in highly hopped West Coast ales that have a citrus-floral hop character. (alpha acid: 4.5-6.0% / beta acid: 5.0-7.0% )
