Tahoma, also released by WSU, is a daughter of the Glacier variety and is described as “Cascade-like,” with notes of citrus, cedar, pine, floral, pepper and green melon. Triple Pearl, released in 2013 by USDA-ARS, is a triploid daughter of the Perle variety, and has notes of melon, orange citrus, resin, spice and pepper. Finally, Yakima Gold is a cross between Early Cluster and a native Slovenian male and is described as a “general purpose variety with smooth bitterness and a pleasant aroma.”

The varieties were originally presented at this year’s Craft Brewers Conference in April. It will take several years until they are more widely available for breweries. Cashmere, released by Washington State University in 2013, is a cross between the popular Cascade and Northern Brewer, and features a “mild herbal aroma with strong melon, lemon, lime and slightly spicy notes,” according to Hopunion LLC, a hop supplier.
