The grapefruit aroma is unmistakable, and very pleasant. I did a side-by-side batch to compare dry hopping with cascade pellets and whole leaves, and while the pellets did a good job, the whole leaf hops added fresh herbal notes that weren't present in pellet-hopped batch. Would definitely use againFebruary 4, 2014Gives a great aromaI use a hop rocket to get great aroma out of these hops before the wort is cooled down so no aromatics are lost. Good citrusy flavor and aroma, just the thing for an IPA. 1-2 ounces gives a nice aroma, especially when used in conjunction with dry hopping.January 30, 2014Great for dry hoppingCascade hops are one of my favorites and I absolutely love to dry hop with leaf vs pellets. Getting them into the carboy and clean up is a bit trickier but worth it.January 27, 2014dry hoppingused them to dry hop my hop cult kit and turned out greatJanuary 9, 2014Great for dry hoppingI love the way leaf hops dry hop my beer... place them in a nylon bag then into your beer, great!November 13, 2013great for the dry hopI love to dry hop with leaf hops and brew with pellet hops. I have some ipa's and pale ales that I love using this with. It adds some great aroma and flavor. I've tried brewing with them but they soak up too much wort and expand quite a bit. I don't think the flavor was as great. I'll stick to just dry hopping with leaf. Otherwise, it's a great hop product. 5 starts for dry hopping.August 26, 2013Perfect for IPAs and Pale AlesIts a great hop for IPAs and I use it all the time. Good Citrus smell and aroma balanced by good bitterness. Good for dry hopping or as a finishing hop.August 15, 2013Favorite HopsCascade hops are absolutely my favorite because I am an IPA guy however these were the first hops I tried whole instead of pellets for dry hopping and the difference was phenomenal. The aroma was incredible. I will brew with these again and may be the only way I go for dry hopping from here out. Gotta try it!July 25, 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
