Centennial hops is the more bitter big brother of Cascade and is sometimes called a Super Cascade. It’s named after the Centennial festival in Washington State and has a similar flavor and aroma profile to Cascade. But Centennial tends to be a little more bitter and not as citrusy. It has almost double the amount of alpha acid content of Cascade and is often used as a bittering hops as well as an aroma hops. Bear Republic’s Red Rocket is a good example of the Centennial hops profile.
