Originally bred in 1974 by Washington State University, Centennial was latter released in 1990, and often refered to as Super-Cascade for it's similar profile but nearly twice the alpha acid of Cascade. With 7-12% Alpha Acid, this hop is an awesome dual purpose variety. While the characteristics are similar to Cascade, Centennial has a bit more citrus and fruit forward flavors and aromas. It also blends amazingly with other hop varieties and is found in nearly every popular IPA on the market. Try it in any style of Ale or Lager, although it comes out best in a Pale Ale or IPA.
