Yield 1700 - 2000 kg./ha. or 1500 - 1750 lb./ac.
Growth Habit Good and neat, well-hopped down
Disease/Pest Susceptibility No visible reaction to infection with Prunus necrotic ring-spot virus. Moderately resistant to downy mildew and Verticillium wilt.

General Trade Perception
Very balanced hop, sometimes called a super Cascade.

Possible Substitutions
Cascade, possibly Columbus or Chinook. Analytically a blend of 70% Cascade and 30% Columbus will give similar profile.

Typical Beer Styles
All US Ale styles, has been used with US Wheat beers.

Additional Information
Named from the Washington State Centennial Celebration. At one time this variety was going to be destroyed for lack of interest by the world's major breweries. Today has found a very favorable following by craft-brewers.

Typical Hop Use
Dual purpose
