Centennial is an aroma-type cultivar, bred in 1974 and released in 1990.
The genetic composition is 3/4 Brewers Gold, 3/32 Fuggle, 1/16 East
Kent Golding, 1/32 Bavarian and 1/16 unknown.A relatively new
hop on the market, this hop used to be called CFJ90. Described by some
as a "Super Cascade" and we tend to agree, but it's not nearly as
"citrusy". Some even use it for aroma as well as bittering. Bitterness
is quite clean and can have floral notes depending on the boil time.
