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.

Brewing NEIPAs. High alpha acids, better than low oil content.
Erik R on Sep 9, 2020
My first choice was Southern Cross but that does not seem to be available within a reasonable amount of time before my brew day. This is a viable substitute that was readily available.

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.
