2008 Crop. 8.9% Ave. Alpha. One of the best selling organic hops, once again available in whole hop form! The New Zealand Cascade hops retain the dominant citrus-floral characteristics of this extremely popular hop, but the the quality of product is first rate and in keeping with the high standards that the New Zealand growers have become known for. This is a fresh, very aromatic hop that is popular in American style ales as well as English and Australian Ales. Excellent for dry hopping. Bred from Cascade rootstock hybridized with organic New Zealand stock. A good substitute for American Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo, or Columbus.
