With 7-12% Alpha Acid, this hop is an awesome dual purpose variety. It was once first referenced as "Super Cascade" but gradually gained a fallowing of it's own. 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.
