    Chinook

    Chinook: high alpha, big flavor.
    SKU: HCHI0044

    Breeding/Development: Washington, USA. Developed by the USDA breeding program and released in 1985 as a high-alpha variety, Chinook eventually found traction among craft brewers as a unique aroma and flavor hop. Its ancestry includes Petham Golding and USDA 63012.

    Brewing Application: Dual purpose. Thanks to its high alpha content and moderate cohumulone, Chinook delivers potent, smooth bitterness but also contributes specific pine notes highly desirable in an IPA dry hop.

    Sensory: Strongs notes of grapefruit define this hop. Pungent suggestions of mountain pine and resin (especially as a dry hop) with citrus and fragrant dried herb in the background.

    Botanical Classification:
    Family: Cannabaceae
    Genus: Humulus
    Species: Lupulus

    Maturity: Middle

    Yield: 1900 - 2100 lbs/acre
