Not Cascade, but still good Review by Nick

(Posted on 2/11/14)

Product Rating:

Contrary to what some might say (and in agreement with reviewers below), these are NOT a supercharged cascade. Not only does this hop lack cascade's signature grapefruit aroma, citrus plays a supportive role in the flavor profile. It's dominated mostly by floral notes, which makes for a very pleasant beer, though not at all what I was expecting when I ordered it. Not as strong as some west coast hops, so adjust accordingly

I recently brewed a single hop IPA using centennial that turned out really good. Probably one of my favorites I've brewed out of 15 beers.
1 oz Centennial (60 min)
1 oz Centennial (20 min)
2 oz Centennial (5 min)
1 oz Centennial (Dry hop 7 days)

Centennial Review by Seth

Product Rating:

I agree with a previous reviewer. This is not a 'super charged Cascade. It has a very different hop profile than the Cascade. I recently used Centennial in an American Pale Ale. It added a great aroma and some bitterness. I loved it. I will use Centennial again. It is reasonably priced for an OZ.

these hop pellets were exactly what my beer needed. They have an aroma that grabs your soul by the nose. I'll definitely be getting more to help out future brews

Good for IPAs Review by Aaron

Product Rating:

Love using these whenever I brew an IPA. Usually use them for the last two minutes of the boil for their aroma, but using them for bittering works nicely too.

I have had a love for beers that are only hopped with centennial for quite some time. I love using it in my beers as well. These pellets have worked well each time I have used them. I like dry hopping with the leaf version. Great price.

I love centennial hops. Great hops for an IPA. great aroma, always fresh from Midwest. Really recommend these. Definitely one of my top two favorites up there with cascade hops.

Always adds great hop flavor and aroma to my IPAs and Pale Ales. I use these a lot and they are always fresh and smell great. Great hop for many beer styles.

This hop is a staple in many of my IPA recipes. I love the flavor and the aroma. One of my favorite recipes uses 100% Centennial hops.
