Notes / Commercial Description:
Pipeworks Cascade has been growing and nurturing his infamous high alpha kick and aromatic abilities at Master Nunzino's Hop Head Farms. Hop Head Farms is where the strongest, most able hops go to enhance and punch up their Unicorn battling abilities. When you can snatch the ale from the shelves, you will be ready to drink, Grasshopper. Remember grasshopper, drink early, drink often, drink early, drink often, oh yeah, and wax on. And off.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance-
Burnished orange, slight haze, and a nice foamy cream head.

Smell-
Pleasant grapefruit, with a smooth coconut/vanilla sweetness. Definitely a cascade bite lacking in the current trend of IPAs.

Taste-
It starts out much creamier than I expected, but that makes the pleasant bitterness akin to Cascade hops all the better.

Mouthfeel-
Thick, but the hop makes it feel astringent. Could use a little more bubble.

Overall-
Cascade is one of the first hops I was able to identify, and it has a nostalgia quality. This, like most of Pipework's beers, is a well done representation.
