Centennial Hops - 100g
Bred in 1974 and released by Washington State University in 1990, Centennial is an aroma-type cultivar that has found favour as one of the most popular varieties in craft brewing. It is often referred to as a super-Cascade (containing nearly double the alpha content) and can be used for bittering purposes. Centennial is a diploid cross between Brewer's Gold and a USDA male.
It is a popular hop amongst American craft brewers, mostly notably used by Russian River in Pliny the Elder, and The Alchemist in Heady Topper.
It is well suited to Pale Ales and IPAs.
