Centennial Pellet Hops
Centennial is a very balanced hop, sometimes called a super Cascade. It is typically used in American ales and has also been used with American wheat beers. This hop has a favourable following among craft brewers. It was named for the Washington State Centennial Celebration.
Centennial has seen a resurgence in the industry. In its short life, it has seen rise and fall, and is now on an upswing. Its versatility in different beer styles, resistance to disease and fungus, and moderate storagability will keep Centennial in the American mainstream for some time to come.
