Chinook Hop Pellets

Chinook Hop Pellets


Chinook hops are a very distinctive dual-purpose hop used in Ales for both bittering and flavour/aroma. Chinook hops are commonly used in IPA's. Distinct, medium intensity spice and pine characteristics with subtle notes of grapefruit. Some consider the bittering quality of this hop is a bit rough because it lingers in your mouth after swallowing. However, some brewers can't get enough. The flavour/aroma is spicy and unique, with a huge following of loyal fans.
