The Centennial Hops were first bred in 1974 as a cross between many different strains including Brewers Gold, Fuggle, East Kent Golding, and Bavarian hops. The name comes from the Washington State Centennial Celebration, which occurred in 1989, just before the public release of Centennial Hops in 1990.
Centennial Hops are a great dual-purpose hop and can be used successfully for both bittering and aroma. Centennial hops are very similar to Cascade and are characterized by aromatic pine, citrus, and floral notes.
