Chinook hops are a very distinctive dual-purpose American hop which is widely used in Ales for both bittering, aroma and flavour.

The variety is a cross between Petham Golding and a USDA male and features a pine-like, medium intensity spicy bouquet with subtle notes of grapefruit. Used as both bittering and aroma hops, Chinook hops are suitable for any stage of the boil.

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 love the spicy unique flavour and aroma Chinook creates.

Chinook hops are commonly used in West Coast style IPAs but they’re not only a natural for American-style Pale Ales and IPAs, but they also find their way into seasonal Ales, Barley Wine and some Porters and Stouts.
