Origin: 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.

Usage: 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. 

Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: 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. 

To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
