Great bittering hop. Very high alpha acid hop that can add 50-60 IBUs if boiled for 60 minutes or more.

Great in IPAs
Its slightly spicy and fairly piney. I have used it at different times an aroma, a flavor, and a bittering hop. I use it in IPAs, but may try it in a Pale ale at some point. I like the taste, but its different from many other hops.

Almost like a stronger cascade
Chinook is an excellent bittering hop with some aroma properties. It blends very well with Cascade due to the piney citrus scent._x000D__x000D_Chinook was introduced in 1985 by the USDA; it has been a microbrewers friend since then. It's an excellent hop for IPAs, Stouts, Winter beers, anything that can benefit from moderate to heavy bittering.

Love it for IPAs
Not everyone is a fan of the piney nature of Chinook but I dig it. I think it is a great bittering hop for IPAs with a high AA% and I like adding it towards the end of the boil as well when paired with some citrusy hops that compliment this well. Overall I really like this hop and it's fun to say so it's hard to go wrong with it.

Great US hi-alpha hop
Chinook is great for layering in American IPAs especially as a bittering addition. Usually the heaviest hitter AAU-wise of the C-hops but still makes a fine late-hop addition for styles where the hop presence shouldn't be subtle or subdued.

Great pine flavor
Really nice bittering hop that also has a smooth pine flavor.

Took the place of Cascade as my favorite hop. Rare that I make a beer without this one and rare, too, that I'll ever find a hop with so much versatility.

I just made my first IPA and Chinook was my bittering hops. They have a high AAU and impart awesome bitterness profile to the beer. Midwest dis a great job of packaging (great vacuum seal).

The wonder of Bitting and Aroma
If your looking for a hops to take your breath away this is the one. I use in my strong ale to help off set the taste of alcohol. Its Lasting bitterness and flavor make it a staple in my high gravity beers.
