Centennial hop was created by Pebbbles
Description:
Sometimes called a super Cascade. Wonderful citrus, but lacking the grapefruit character of Cascade.

Pedigree
Selected from a cross between Brewer's Gold and a selected USDA male.

Maturity Mid-season
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.
Pickability/Drying/Baling Good
Cone-Structure Medium-sized, dense, compact cone
Lupulin Abundant, dark yellow in color
Aroma Medium intensity with floral and citrus tones

Alpha Acid 9.5 - 11.5% w/w
Beta Acid 3.5 - 4.5% w/w
Cohumulone 29 - 30% of alpha acids
Storageability 60 - 65% alpha acids remaining after 6 months storage at 20°C
Total Oil 1.5 - 2.3 mls/100 grams
Myrcene 45 - 55% of whole oil
Humulene 10 - 18% of whole oil
Carophyllene 5 - 8% of whole oil
Farnesene <1% of whole oil

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
