(HPP210) This is the go-to hop for many homebrewers. It is versatile in its use: acting as both a respectable bittering hop with its moderate level of alpha acid and as a wonderful aromatic hop that can even be used for dry hopping. It has a well-balanced spicy, citrus flavor that is met with a slight hint of grapefruit. It aromatic qualities can be best described as fragrant with touch of spice and grapefruit. US Cascade hops are at the heart of the American IPA. It's character is what screams from these high-hopped homebrews. You can find US Cascade hops used in several other popular beer styles: porters, witbier, etc, but its main wheelhouse is American Ales.
- Apha Acid 4.5-7%
- The go-to hop for many homebrewers
- Main hop for most American Ales

Are your pelletized hops compressed, leaf hops?
These are fresh leaf hops that have been shredded, cleaned of seeds, etc, then pulverized and compressed into the pellets. This is the most common way hops are processed and sold. More hop resin is extracted and exposed this way, which creates more efficiency. Pelletized hops also stay fresher longer in this form as well.

How long will your hops stay fresh after I receive them and what is the best way to store them.
Our pelletized hops are sealed in oxygen-barrier plastic bags along with nitrogen gas. This keeps the hop pellets very stable and fresh while in storage. If the hop pellets are stored at room-temperature, we do not recommend buying more than you can use in a year`s time, but if stored in a refrigerator or similar, the hop pellets should stay fresh for up to two years if un-opened.
