COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On the brink of extinction, they were plucked from obscurity and thrown into the spotlight. Facing ignorance and disinterest, someone saw potential...and knew they would be big. We’re not dishing on the latest undeserving Hollywood celebutante counting down their 15 minutes. We’re talking about the big, bold, and beautiful Centennial hops. With huge floral and citrus notes, these high alpha hops are one of the the industry’s few triple threats. They can be used for bittering, aroma, and flavor, which make them perfect for our latest Single Hop Imperial IPA.

Super fruity aroma. Peach all over, some other fleshy fruits and apple. Sticky sweet. Bit of a mess. Finish fairly fruity. Matches the US IPA style which I find too sweet.

Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 25, 2011
[email protected] horse. A rich nose of mangos and lemons, deep amber in colour with lots more mango in the body and a resinous finish. Dry hopped with el dorado and simcoe

3.8
Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2011
Tap @ White Horse on Parsons Green, London. RBESG 2011. Pours cloudy orange with a small creamy head and lacings. Peach and grapefruit. Oily, sticky , smooth and really bitter.

joet (2606) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2011
A lot of hop expression here and for Cascade’s weaker brother, Centennial gets a rare spotlight and does not disappoint. Like a baritone solo that no one saw coming, it puts out some big bitterness, neroli, light phenols, bushy aromas. The 10% is appreciable but not defeating, and without much warming or indication of fusels. A tidy beer at 10% highlighting a largely unsung hop well.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2011
This was a pale amber, whitish cover. Aroma is strong herbal hops, light toast. Taste is similar, not my favorite hop ever, the herbal bite overpowers any malt subtleties.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2011
Cask (RBESG 2011, London) at White Horse on Parson’s Green. Clear red/amber - white head. Nice freshness, toasted, knækbrød, berries, fruity, nice medium bitterness, amber malts, grassy, light candy sweetness, cheese. OK.

3.4
oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2011
Draught (or cask?). Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, some floral hops as well as bready malts. Flavour is quite much the same in a nice balance. Simple, but tasty.

3.7
planky84 (3259) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2011
On tap at the White Horse during my very fleeting visit after GBBF, 2011. Amber pour with a white head. Citrus, apricot and pear aroma. Strong citrus zing with a spot of pear and mango. Sharp, long hop finish.
