Cascade is a popular hop variety that forms an essential flavour in many American ales.

It was developed in the seventies in the United States and is descended from varieties of Fuggles hops.

The flavours of Cascade are fairly distinctive, although not overpowering. The hop is equally suited to bittering, flavouring and aroma uses, where it brings a citrus-based, spicy quality to your brews.

Used in abundance it can contribute towards a powerful American Pale Ale.
