Cascade is the mother of all citrusy hop varieties and carried the craft beer industry from its infancy to where it is today. Cascade is a staple in west coast hoppy beers that are looking for a citrusy floral hop character. Developed in 1956 but not released until 1972 Cascade, whose ancestry includes English Fuggle and Russian Serebrianka, remains the most widely cultivated and popular aroma hop variety in the world!
