5.0 / 5.033 ReviewsPerfect for Dry HoppingI use these when dryhopping a past Double IPA. Great Aroma and I will definitely use again. When dryhopping I tried a tip from a brewer friend of mine and placed the hops in a strainer bag that was sanitized (any mesh bag will work). I also placed about a dozen sanitized marbles in the bag. When I transferrred the primary over to secondary I placed the bag with hops and marbles in the carboy and transferred it right on top. Bag floated for 2 days but once the hops soaked up the wert the bag fell to the bottom, no more worries of clogged tubes when bottlng!March 11, 2013Great hops at a great priceI purchased these hops 2 weeks ago for an IPA I was making. I dry hopped after 10 days in primary and was very happy with the quality of the hops. 70% of the hops in the package were still intact when I opened the package. After 5 days dry hopped in the secondary the beer smells delicious!! I will definately be purchasing these from Midwest again.March 11, 2013Great aroma and tasteNice Pine and Citrrus taste. I added some Orange peel at knockout and it enhanced the flavor. I use Cascade at knockout to prevent the volatile aromatics from boiling off. Try the Cascade pale ale that Midwest sells to truely experience them.March 19, 2013Tremendous Citrus aromaI dry hop with the whole leaf cascade hops for 5 days and it gives an incredible aroma. I use them in IPAs and Pale ales so I try and buy in bulk. I also use them for flavoring, for the last 15 minutes of the boil. The only disadvantage is they absorb a lot of wort.March 21, 2013Smells like heavenThese cascade hops had a great aroma, fragrant like citrus. Good for dry hopping. Unfortunately they absorb a lot of beer, so I squeeze them to fight for some of it back.April 4, 2013Greatest American HopsIf you're looking for American hops this is the one you want. Cascade leaf hops give you all the citrus and herbal goodness that you've come to enjoy from dozens of different american ales that incorporate this hops. Leaf hops are better at giving that raw, full flavor more than pellets.April 9, 2013Refreshing!The refreshing aroma of the Cascade hop is what makes it a favorite in my brews. Many people have told me to use whole leaf hops instead of pellets and I now know why. The leafy nature seems to allow more of the flavor to release into your beer. Not sure if the leaf hops release more of the alpha acids but I like to think it makes it taste better.May 31, 2013fantastic in an IPAThe cascade hops have great flavor and aroma. I dry hopped with them too and the IPA was among the best I've made. I also use them for bittering, but their real strength is the flavor and aroma.June 22, 2013A must for dry hoppingOne of my staple hops for dry hopping. 2 OZ of cascade for 7 days and in your face flavor and aroma. I use these in my pale ale and IPA. I have even used them in a belgian tripel for an American style tripel.July 16, 2013Great for dry hoppingThese add such a nice taste and smell, I love using them for flavor and aroma. The secret is to drink the beer fast, don't let it get stale and Oxydixe. If you dry hop with them, put them in a container of boiling water to get out the oxygen and wet them, so that they sink into the beer.July 23, 2013
