4.9 / 5.027 ReviewsWonderful HopGreat for APA's, but it shouldn't be called "Super Cascade", since it doesn't resemble Cascade in taste or aroma. Worth trying to see which you like better, though.October 1, 2011CitrusGreat hop to add a burst of citrus and grapefruit aromas. Use in America IPA's. Midwest beats all their competition in price and keeping these hops in stock.November 1, 2012great hopgood for making the citrus come out. I have to disagree i think it combines very well with cascade for that fruity flavor.November 26, 2012excellentI love everything about centennial hops. At this point the are kind of boring but it's hard to avoid what works so well. One of my favorite beers is Bell's Two Hearted Ale which is just blasted with Centennial. Pairs well with a variety of hops for any kind of hoppy America style beer!December 27, 2012Great HopI've used Centennial Hops for my last few IPA recipes. They worked great for a Bell's Two Hearted Clone I brewed several months back. I received 11.6% Alpha Acid hops (well above the 9.1% average advertised) in a vacuum sealed package. I was very pleased with this product.January 15, 2013Great flavorI love IPAs and this adds that citrus flavor I long for.January 22, 2013Might be the most versatile hop...I really enjoy this hop all around. I use it mostly for bittering. However, when not bittering with Centennial, I use it for flavor and aroma. Highly recommend and it is always in stock at Midwest.February 16, 2013Great hopsThese hops give a great citrus flavor, especially when paired with cascade.February 16, 2013One of the FavoritesThis is one of my favorite hops. Adds great west coast flavor to any beer.March 11, 2013Great dry-hopI love using centennial for dry-hopping, as they give a strong, fruity flavor to the beer. One of my favorite hops, goes great in all kinds of pale ales.April 29, 2013
