1 year agoPINE!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 carefulFebruary 11, 2014Chinook pellet hopsI 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.January 1, 2014Use with Cascadecascade and Chinook together make a great combination that's citrusy and piney, with good flavor and aroma. It provides the bittering backbone as well.December 17, 2013Good HopPiney, citrus, pine bomb. Used for bittering.September 10, 2013A great hop for IPAsIts nice and bitter and the smooth pine flavor is good too. I used it in a Chinook IPA that I liked. Its good to use with Cascade because of how the flavors complement each other.August 28, 2013Nice bittering hopIt adds a piney bitterness that some like and some don't. It may be a little on the harsh side but its ok with me. Its a staple in my IPAs.July 12, 2013Very Useful in IPAsVery good bittering hop due to their high alpha acid. Very piney in smell and taste, and rather delicious if you like that smell. Sometimes use for dry hopping, works well if citrus hops are added with them. Definitely one of my go to hops.June 10, 2013Good hops to have.Chinook is a great, multi-purpose hops. It is good for bitterness, flavor, and aroma. It also is good in IPAs, Pale Ales, Barley Wine, Stout, etc. This has spicier/herbal flavor to it and may be a substitute for galena, amarillo, brewers gold, just to name a few.May 18, 2013
