Cool Side Aroma Profile
Adding Cascade at whirlpool will improve the floral and fruit character carried over to the beer but not as much as dry hop addition. Expect the terpene presence to come through stronger than when added to the boil as the humulene/caryophyllene will not have fully oxidized and become flavorful. Adding Cascade as a dry hop dramatically changes her character since all the lighter aromatics (mycrene, linalool, geraniol, 4MMP, nerol, etc) will solublize into the beer. To fully experience what this variety can do make sure to pare it with complimentary hops and avoid overly aggressive herbal types that produce onion/garlic/musky character.
Pairs Well With
Mt. Hood, Brewer’s Gold, Tettnanger, Sterling, Chinook, Centennial, Fuggle, Hersbrucker, Nelson Sauvin
Avoid any overbearing varieties that tend to be extremely pungent like CTZ, Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra, etc. Choose partners with some herbal components added on the hot side and cool side partners with sweet fruit and spice.
