Cashmere is versatile dual purpose US hop that brings complex aromas of citrus and tropical fruit to the front. A cross between Cascade and Northern Brewer released by Washington State University in 2013, Cashmere is a dual-purpose stunner evoking coconut, melon, tangerine, and other tropical and spicy notes alongside smooth bitterness.
Cashmere was released by Washington State University in 2013. A daughter of Cascade, it includes Northern Brewer germplasm through the male parent. The alpha acid content of Cashmere is higher than Cascade. Cashmere contains no Farnesene and twice as much Humulene as Cascade

Cashmere really shines when used for aroma and flavor in hop-forward styles, or where the intensity of its exotic tropical notes will complement sour, fruited, or funky ales. Its respectable alpha content combined with low cohumulone lets it contribute smooth bitterness if used early in the boil.
Aroma & Flavour Characteristics
Complex and intensely fruity, with strong overtones of lemon, lime, peach, and melon. Secondary notes of coconut, lemongrass, candy, and herbs can show through in whirlpool or dry hop additions.

General Trade Perception
It looks like the very exotic and tropical Cashmere will be the next variety to take over IPAs (move aside, Mosaic) [Draft Mag, Apr 2014] (Ed. or maybe not why don't you brew with and decide and give us your review and view on Cashmere.)

Wow..used this as a bittering addition and teamed with mosaic for late and keg additions.. One helluva cocktail there. Next run I will pop some super pride or similar in for the bittering but that could become my ironclad IPA right there

Cashmere US hops
Review by Jarrod on 19 Dec 2018review stating Cashmere US hops
I recently used this as a single hop for a Red Ale. Simply wow! This hop shined whilst allowing the malt to poke its head out with its delicious citrus and tropical fruit flavour profile. I can't wait to brew this one again.
