What hops are used in Epic Pale Ale?

Epic Pale Ale uses just one hop variety - US Cascade. These Cascade hops are grown in the Yakima Valley in Washington State, USA.

Cascade – Very successful and well-established American aroma hop developed by Oregon State University's breeding program in 1956 from Fuggle and Serebrianker (a Russian variety), but not released for cultivation until 1972. Piney, citrusy, and quite assertive.(Alpha acid: 4.5–6.0% / beta acid: 5.0–7.0% )
