(General AA range 9-11.5%) Centennial Whole Hops can be used both for bittering and aroma. The aroma/flavor is definitely American in nature with pungent aromas and pronounced flavor of pine, citrus, and floral. Similar to, and blends well with Cascade, but without the grapefruit flavors of Cascade. Often used in conjunction with Chinook or Columbus.
These are whole hops (raw hops) that are great for dry hopping, as they can be less messy than pellet hops.
