Beers: As a great hop for a number of American Ales styles, Centennial provides a classic flavor and aroma in SMASH beers, developing citrusy, piney, resiny and floral notes while used in flavor, aroma and dry hop additions. For Americanized Wit beers, the hop produces distinctly citrusy notes, complementing the coriander and orange peel typically added in the final 15 minutes of the boil. Centennial provides a darker citrusy flavor than Cascades. Centennial and Cascade are often blended together in many styles of American Ale. Combining well with Cascade and Citra, Centennial provides a unique floral citrus facet in IPA's, complementing the gooseberry and lychee of Citra and the bright grapefruit of Cascade.
