I love Cascade, but its been fully replaced with Amarillo and Simcoe in most of my IPA recipes now.

Love those Cascades!!!Use em in everything from our pilsner lagers to our wheat beers and everything in between.And we don't do "aroma' additions,strictly bittering(60 mins) and flavor(20mins).
Cheers

I hate Cascade and it's ugly Centennial friend.

I agree that it's over used, I've gotten some kits recently that used them exclusively and the flavour is the single biggest factor that makes me say "this isn't close".

I'me experimenting with my brews now, adding those hops in at 35 minutes rather than 60 (yes, I hate them that much) and subbing out varieties.

Last weekend my brother in law brought me a case of a local amber. I was so happy when I cracked it open and it was actually malty and not filled with cascade or overloaded with another American hop. I hope the hop shortage will make more breweries go down the malty road.

I love cascade, but I think some people go nuts with it. I think cascade's huge popularity comes from its versatility as bittering, flavoring, or finishing hop, and its versatility among styles. I've used cascade for everything from california common to imperial stout, but only when it matches the grain bill and the other hops.
