Going to buy more. Turns out I dig hops!!
Work great in an ipa, worked awesome as an add on to beer simply beer ipa
Flavoring with this hop will make your beer taste like an evergreen tree. There are some spicey notes in there, but pine is the biggest thing that will come through. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but you should know what you're getting into, especially as strong as these hops are._x000D__x000D_The bitterness is long and lingering, as well. Great for an overcharged IPA, but probably not well-suited for much else. Give it a try, but be careful
I really like Chinook hops. I use them for bittering and late additions as well as dry hopping. They make great pale ales and IPAs by themselves or combined with Cascade and/or Simcoe.
cascade and Chinook together make a great combination that's citrusy and piney, with good flavor and aroma. It provides the bittering backbone as well.
