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. Strong 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. The aroma profile includes Grapefruit, pungent, citrus and herb. Works well with all hop-forward beers especially modern IPAs and as a bittering hop for clean bitterness.
