Notes:
Centennial Hops is at times referred to as a Super Cascade, but it doesn’t have the as much of the citrusy characteristics of the Cascades. Centennial is a much celebrated hop in its versatility. With its depth of bitterness along with a forward aroma, the two balance each other out beautifully. With its alpha acid content of 9.5-11.5%, it is well suited to Pale Ales and IPAs. Floral in both flavor and aroma, these notes are prevalent in the beers into which they are brewed. Centennial has had its ups and downs in the industry, and is now experiencing a return to popularity.
