Released in 1972, Cascade was the first commercially accepted American bred aroma hop and is now well established in the US. It is one of the most popular hop for craft brewing and great for dry hopping. The Cascade is a cross between the Fuggle and the Russian hop Serebrianka. The compact medium sized cone has a slight square shape to it and has a moderate amount of yellow lupulin. The lupulin develops in tight balls in the cone, which makes it a unique variety. It is good for picking, drying and baling.
