Thanks to its high alpha content and moderate cohumulone oil content, Chinook delivers potent, smooth bitterness. The flavor and aroma are filled with pine and spice notes with a subtle grapefruit character.
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.
