Cashmere is developed by Washington State University and was released in 2013. It is the result of a marriage between Northern Brewer and Cascade, it features higher alpha acids than the latter does.
Cashmere is a good dual-purpose hop, as it showcases flavours of lemon, lime and melon, while exhibiting a smooth bitterness. It is mildly aromatic with a subtle herbal bouquet. The exact alpha acid content is indicated on every package.
