Art Brew: Hip Hop: Cascade (England: Golden Ale: 4.3% ABV)

Visual: Honeyed amber with a light off white bubbled head.

Nose: Citrus, wheat and hops. Pineapple and grapefruit, lemon fresh with light toffee.

Body: Sour grapes, white wine and grapefruit. Bitter and wheat filled hop back. Toffee and custard sweetness.

Finish: Bitter and rising charcoal mixed with a hint of liquorice and treacle.  Ground coffee and good hops, quite floral and perfumed.

Conclusion: Now this is a hop with some legs to it, lots of the grapefruit and citrus.  It brings a lot of the flavours I associate with the American style IPAs, with a touch of sweetness in-between the forceful and full boded expression.

As always single hop beers are great fun for working out which hop is responsible for which part of your favourite beers flavours and textures, and for that I always recommend trying a few.

This beer is a fine beer in itself, a heavy pint of flavour in yer glass.

Great hop, well made, good beer.
