Product Overview

This balanced bittering and aromatic hop has a decidedly American nature with a uniquely pungent flavor.  An intense citrus aroma with pronounced lemon notes also gives off some floral qualities that blend well with IPAs, APAs, and Pale Ales. Famously used in many of the original west coast IPAs as a dry hop. Whole cone hops are typically the preffered format for dry hopping as they maintain contact with the beer by floating, they are easier to remove than pellets and they add a unique character to the beer. Adding whole cone hops directly to the mash tun is also a great way to add an extra layer of hop flavor and to clarify your wort as it filters through the flowers. Centennial is sometimes referenced to as a super charged Cascade without the grapefruit flavors of Cascade. Centennial also blends well with Chinook and Columbus hops
