Description

Chinook hops are a very distinctive dual-purpose hop used in Ales for both bittering and flavor/aroma. Chinook hops are commonly used in West Coast style IPAs. Distinct, medium intensity spice and pine characteristics with subtle notes of grapefruit. Some consider the bittering quality of this hop to be a bit rough because it has a lingering quality. On the other hand, some brewers can't get enough! The flavor/aroma is spicy and unique, with a huge following of loyal fans.

Pineapple and dank
Made a SMaSH NEIPA and it was a pineapple juice bomb for the first week, was so delicious. Then it faded into the dank smell that Chinook is known for. Still good, but I prefer the fresh pineapple flavor than the dank weed flavor and smell that lingers after it’s 2 weeks old

favorite late hop
Great pineapple - tropical fruit flavors and citrus with late hop additions. Unappreciated for late hop additions IMO. One of my favorites.

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.
