If it grows like ****, it's a fuggle. If it grows like an animal, Cascade.
Also, fuggle is one of a few that will be discernible from cascade, IME, especially if you have known fuggle or cascades in your hopyard already. Fuggle are not vigorous growers/producers and their cones will be smaller and discernibly less pungent (more musty/herbal) than cascades.
