Often referred to as a super Cascade, Centennial is a light citrusy hop variety with higher alpha than Cascade. Centennial was born in 1974 and claims such famous hops as Brewers Gold, Fuggle and East Kent Goldings in its ancestry. Centennial takes its name from the 1989 Washington State Centennial Festival, although it was not cultivated en masse until 1990. Growers know the Centennial hop variety as one of the most finicky hops out there, but good things never come easy. Centennial is worth the effort, which is why it remains one of the most popular aroma hop varieties even after a quarter of a century.
