American macroswill is like making love in scuba gear. English macroswill is like making love in a canal.

There are plenty of American microbreweries that produce beer every bit as good or better than the best English beer.  If you haven't had a high gravity, strongly hopped American IPA then you're missing out.  It makes the swill sold as "IPA" in England seem like - well swill.

I for one like Cascade hops and it won't be a bad thing for them to be imported into Europe. They have a nice citrusy aroma rather than the more floral Goldings.  Ruddle's County uses Bramley Cross - a cross between a hardy Canadian hop and Goldings.

Budweiser won't miss them, if the hop truck drives by the brewery then they'll get all the hop flavor they need.
