Centennial CEN

United States

Named after the Washington State festival. Centennial is an aroma-type cultivar, bred in 1974 and released in 1990. The name is derived from the 100 Year Celebration of the state of Washington in 1989. 3/4 of the variety is coming from Brewers Gold, but some genetic material derives from fuggels and East Kent Golding.

The citrus character is a consistent background in Centennial's aroma. Woody-spicy aromas of spruce, barrique, tonka bean, tarragon and aniseed combine with fruity raspberry notes to produce a well-rounded character combined with exotic lychee and pineapple flavors.Fresh lemon and bergamot spiced with aniseed add to a flavor explosion.

*Alpha acids are determined by conductometric titration (EBC 7.4) in Europe, by spectrophotometry (ASBC Hops-6) in the USA. Oil composition is determined by gas chromatography (ASBC Hops-17, EBC 7.12).

All values represent the medium range of the last 4 years. Be aware that specifically the alpha and oil values can vary in a broad range depending on the relevant crop year.
