Pipeworks Cascade has been growing and nurturing his infamous high alpha kick and aromatic abilities at Master Nunzino's Hop Head Farms.

22 ounce bomber into a Pipeworks snifter.

Pours a nice looking orange/amber, a little hazy. Not much of a head or lacing. Smells of dank, citrusy hops- more orange to me, than grapefruit. Smells a little bit sweet as it warms. Taste continues the citrusy hops with a strong, malty backbone. Also get some floral hop flavor and a little mustiness. Some bitterness when it hits the tongue, not so much on the back end. Seems pretty sweet overall, and that's right up my alley. Very smooth, well carbonated.

Another above average DIPA from Pipeworks. A great single hop showcase and one you should try.

Nice strong hop presence with a good malt backbone. A very smooth beer.
