Centennial

Hop Description

This aroma variety, for which Brewer’s Gold provided three-quarters of the genetics, was released in 1990 and is one of the most popular hops in U.S. craft brewing. Centennial is often referred to as “Super Cascade” as it boasts even greater bittering potential than that famous hop, even though its citrus kick is slightly more subdued.
