Developed by the USDA breeding program in Washington State and released in 1985 as a high alpha bittering variety, Chinook is a cross between Petham Golding and a USDA male. In recent years, it has found favor as a dual purpose hop in the craft brewing community as a result of its spice and pine aroma characteristics.
Specific aroma descriptors include grapefruit, spice, and pine.
Alpha Acids: 11.5 - 15.0%
Growing your own hops can be very rewarding, all you need is lots of sun, and healthy soil - they'll practically grow themselves!
Keep rhizomes refrigerated (do not freeze) until the ground is soft enough to plant. Check out our guide to growing hops here.
