5.0 / 5.065 ReviewsDry hop addition to Beer Simply Beer IPAI'd read the Beer Simply Beer IPA reviews and thought I'd add some dry hops. Worked great.April 22, 2018Purchased
over 2 years agoHave used this in multiple batchesCascade hops are highly utilized in the IPA recipes I have recently brewed. Only time will tell how good it actually is, as the process has only been started and the resulting brew is still fermenting in my carboys.February 4, 2018Purchased
10 months agoGreat all-purpose hopCascade hops are great. I've used these as bittering, flavor, aroma, or dry hop additions in 3 of my last 4 brews. If you brew frequently, this is good hop to have on hand in your freezer. They're especially great in pale ales and IPAs.March 13, 2014Citrusy aromaI love the citrusy aroma and use it a lot in IPAs._x000D_I vary the way I use them, either at 15 minutes for flavor, 5 for aroma, or as a dry hop for a few days.February 28, 2014Great hops.This is a great hops for your West Coast IPA. Gives a nice, yet not too strong citrus flavor. The mild/medium AA doesn't make it the best bittering hops but you can pair it with hops like amarillo to give a nice IPA.February 4, 2014Archetypal West Coast HopCascade is well known for its distinctive grapefruit character, and this really pops in the beer. My single-hop Cascade pale ale has become my go-to beer, although I could see this working in a number of styles. Great for flavor, aroma, and dry hopping, although leaf hops work better for the dry hopFebruary 4, 2014Great stuffHigh quality, well-packed, fresh, and delicious. One of my favorite hop varieties in a handy pellet from packed up and fresh from Midwest...what more could you want?January 30, 2014Versatile hopIt has a good citrusy flavor and aroma and is especially well suited for IPAs and Pale Ales. Good for bittering, as a flavor addition , for dry hopping, and as a whirlpool hop.January 18, 2014The workhorse of all my hoppy beersThis hop, more than any other, is the most useful in my brewery. I get a pound at a time and it seems like I go through it in less than a month. Good to add to almost any beer with a nice, balanced citrusy flavor and aroma that proves it's one of the most versatile US hops available. I have it growing in my backyard and can't recommend it enough.January 15, 2014

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 6 answersWas Was Thinking Of Bittering with the Cascade and my own Yakima Magnum....and adding a Bit of Challenger the last 10 and Dry Hop With a Few More Ozs of Cascade.... Does This Sound Like a Decent Mix or a Disaster..?US Cascade Pellet HopsBEST ANSWER: A lot depends on the style of beer you are making. Are you making and English bitter, American lager, or what? When I first started brewing I randomly mixed American and European hops, but the results were often clashing. Challenger is a great hop, but I would stick to using it with English hops such as East Kent Golding, Brewer's Gold UK, Herald, Northdown or Columbia. If you aren't going toward the English bitter profile (as your use of Cascade and Magnum would indicate, then stick with American hops. How about using the Magnum for bittering then getting a nice grapefruity finish with a fair amount of Citra?How long do these stay fresh once opened?BEST ANSWER: I always put the remainder in a sealed zip lock in the refrigerator. They should last for at least 6 to 8 months?
