Description

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 preffered 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. Adding whole hop cones directly to the mash tun is also a great way to add an extra layer of hop flavor and to clarify your wort as it filters through the flowers.Used in so many craft brewed pale ales, but none more famous than Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale. You cannot go wrong using Cascade in all kinds of American style ales.

out of curiosity
abcde on Dec 3, 2020
I am a very new beer maker. Literally this is my very first time even choosing ingredients. I wanted to make a Belgian wheat ale with the lightness and citrus of shock top but not shock top. Because I’m trying to create a Belgian wheat my first beer brew is going to be Pura Belgian wheat. My second I hope I’ll be able to impart the flavors I’m looking for N. But all of the articles I read on the Internet said that this hop profile was the one for a Belgian wheat.

Smell as good as the ones I used to grow when I lived in the part of the country where you could grow good hops. As the beer is still in the secondary fermenter being dry hopped I cannot tell you about the flavor yet.

Good hop quality in terms of smell and taste
I used the Cascade whole hops for making a Pale Ale and used half of the 2 oz for the wort and the remaining half for dry hopping. The flavor was great and the aroma of the hops made for a smooth tasting beer.

Beautiful hops.
I hadn’t used whole hops in 20 years because pellets are the norm now, and didn’t realize how much I missed them. I use whole grain so why shouldn’t I use whole hops. The appearance and aroma were fantastic and loss of wort to trub was much less than pellets.
Hopefully I can get whole EKG next year.

Keep searching and find better hops
I ordered these to dry hop my cider, and I couldn't pass up the price. Unfortunately when I opened the bag, the quality was very poor. Was also not whole cone, but instead a pound of separated leaves, dust, and twigs. I guess that's what you get for a low price. Next time I'll spend the extra money elsewhere for quality.

Awesome Experience
Don't be mad, I made kombucha, not beer. I dry hopped it and it was super delicious. Lots of fruity, grapefruit like flavor, very little bitterness, very enjoyable. I'm a hops novice, but they seemed to be high quality, clean, and aromatic. I will be ordering again
