4.9 / 5.027 ReviewsFebruary 12, 2016Can't wait to purchase againGreat customer service and great products!February 10, 2016Not Cascade, but still goodContrary 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 accordinglyFebruary 11, 2014Perfect all around hopI 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._x000D_1 oz Centennial (60 min) _x000D_1 oz Centennial (20 min) _x000D_2 oz Centennial (5 min) _x000D_1 oz Centennial (Dry hop 7 days)January 27, 2014CentennialI 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.January 4, 2014get somethese 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 brewsNovember 4, 2013PerfectBittering, Aroma, Dry Hopping... these hops are versatile & super tasty.October 10, 2013Good for IPAsLove 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.September 16, 2013one of my favoritesI 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.August 19, 2013Love Centennial HopsI 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.August 18, 2013
