Flavour and Aroma Profile

cascade flavour profile

Cascade hops are renowned for their distinct flavor and aroma profile, characterized by a blend of citrus and grapefruit notes, complemented by spicy and floral qualities. 

This unique combination contributes to their popularity in various beer styles, particularly in American Pale Ales

Brewing Guide and Usage Tips

Cascade hops, a dual-purpose variety, are ideal for both bittering and aroma in homebrew beer. When used for bittering, add them early in the boil to extract their moderate bitterness. 

For aroma, add them late in the boil, typically in the last 15-30 minutes, to capture their distinct grapefruit, citrus, and floral notes. 

Dry hopping with Cascade, especially in the last few days of fermentation, can enhance the hop’s aromatic qualities without adding additional bitterness. This method is particularly effective in styles like American Pale Ales and IPAs, where the hop’s characteristics are a focal point. 

Always store Cascade hops properly, as their alpha acid content decreases over time, impacting flavor intensity


Cascade hops are commonly paired with several other hop varieties, each offering unique complementary flavors:

  1. Centennial: Adds similar citrus and floral notes, enhancing Cascade’s profile.
  2. Chinook: Provides a piney contrast to Cascade’s citrus flavors.
  3. Simcoe: Offers a combination of earthy, piney, and fruity tones, complementing Cascade’s citrus character.
  4. Columbus: Known for its strong bittering quality and earthy aroma, it balances Cascade’s milder bitterness.
  5. Citra: Introduces more pronounced citrus and tropical fruit flavors, amplifying Cascade’s citrus aspect.
  6. Mosaic: Adds complex berry and tropical fruit notes, enriching the overall hop bouquet.

Cascade Substitutes

Common substitutes for Cascade hops include:

  1. Amarillo: Offers similar citrus notes but with a higher alpha acid content. Be aware of the increased bitterness.
  2. Centennial: Known as ‘Super Cascade’, it has higher alpha acids and more intense flavors, often used in IPAs.


Cascade hops were developed in the 1950s at Oregon State University by Jack Horner’s team. Released in 1972, they are a product of open pollination between the English Fuggle and Russian Serebrianka varieties.
