Cashmere hails from Cascade as the female parent and Northern Brewer germplasm through the male parent. Its profile shows higher alpha acids than its mother, and more than double the humulene. A good dual purpose hop, it is smoothly bitter and mildly aromatic with a nose of herbs. Cashmere is a new arrival on the industry scene as it was just released by Washington State University in 2013. Quite possibly its name refers to the silkiness imparted to its brews.
