Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Chinook hops are a very distinctive dual-purpose hop used in Ales for both bittering and flavor/aroma. Chinook hops are commonly used in IPA's. Distinct, medium intensity spice and pine characteristics with subtle notes of grapefruit. Some consider the bittering quality of this hop is a bit rough because it lingers in your mouth after swallowing. However, some brewers can't get enough. The flavor/aroma is spicy and unique, with a huge following of loyal fans.

favorite late hop
Great pineapple - tropical fruit flavors and citrus with late hop additions. Unappreciated for late hop additions IMO. One of my favorites.
September 24, 2014
Fresh Chinook Hops in an O2 barrier bag. Love the C's.
May 3, 2014
only for first additions IMO
never took to this hop in late additions but great for first additions

Hooray for IPA!
This is the flavor hop in my recipe that won a gold medal at Hangar 24's Homebrew Competition. Great pine flavor.

Normally Great Flavor, But Can Produce Odd Flavor
I routinely use this hop in IPAs, but I've noticed that it can lend a dirty/dusty flavor when used in abundance (especially late in kettle or dry hop).

For piney/resiney flavors, I prefer to cut the total charge of Chinook with Apollo and/or Columbus.

I prefer the packaging that morebeer uses over other suppliers. Never had a quality issue with hops from them.

Surprised by this hops versatility
Used chinook as a dry hop in my secondary when attempting a Sierra Nevada Celebration clone and was pleasantly surprised by its fantastic aroma. Also makes a great bittering hop but use it judiciously.

One of my favorites
I love me some Chinook. Too, the Chinook from MoreBeer is excellent: Piney, citrus, grapefruit, & other American qualities really shine in Chinook.
