CENTENNIAL

Centennial Hops is a celebration of the gods in a medium compact cone form. Named after the Washington State festival sharing the same name, this variety was another brain child of the USDA. Once again, Brewer's Gold Hops was used along with Fuggle, East Kent Golding, Bavarian, and one other unknown variety to produce this dark yellow lupulin producer.

Centennial Hops was first created in 1974 and boasts an alpha acid rating of 9.5%-11.5%. It is sometimes referred to as a Super Cascade, however it is lighter on the citrus aromas. Centennial works undoubtedly well in Pale Ales and India Pale Ales, where some bottom line bitterness in beer is needed with the top end aroma. The floral flavor and aroma of this variety is evident in many commercial beers.

Centennial has seen a resurgence in both the beer making and hops growing industry. In its short life, it has seen rise and fall, and is now on an upswing. Its versatility in different beer styles, resistance to disease and fungus, and moderate storagability will keep Centennial in the American mainstream for some time to come.


NUGGET

Nugget Hops was released in 1982 by the U.S.D.A and is a cross between Brewers Gold and a high alpha acid male. Nugget Hops is the mother of Millenium Hops and ranks second for the amount grown Oregon and by 1991 had taken over 14.1% of U.S. hop production. Wow.

Nugget Hops has an acute bitterness from its 9.5%-14.0% alpha acid content. It provides the umph in many beer styles that require the hop jolt including imperial style ales. Its a dual use hops that has green, herbal aroma. It has a relatively low co-humulone oil content. The myrcene oil is on the high side, which helps provide some of the woody tones.

Nugget is an extremely popular hops for brewing. It was bred partly for its storage capacity, and holds 70%-80% of its alpha acid content after 6 months storage at 20 degrees celsius. The moderately long compact cones are harvested mid season. Nugget is moderately resistant to the plagues of the region including Prunus Necrotic Ring-Spot Virus, Downy Mildew, and Powdery Mildew.

MAGNUM

Characteristics

Sometimes referred to as Yakima Magnum. Magnum is a good, clean, all purpose bittering hop. It is sometimes described as having a floral character. Alpha acids are high, usually between 12 and 14% AAU. This hop was bred in 1980 bred in 1980 at Huell, the German Hop Research Instititute. It was a cross between Galena and the German male 75/5/3. Usage is best in ale styles like Pale Ale and IPA, or any strong ales. Other sources say they are good for Pils and Lager styles. This wide range of use is due to this hop's clean characteristics.
