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

Pours a golden amber orange with a frothy single finger head of off-white foam.

Tons of tropical fruit notes, dried orange, melon, and bready-biscuity malt sweetness.

Melon, orange zest, biscuity, candied malts, and caramel.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, tropical, fruity, sweet, dry finish.

Overall, much more tropical than I would have expected, very sweet, but tons of hops resin to dry out the palate.
