Chinook Pellet Hops (8 oz)
Chinook is a product of the USDA breeding program at Washington State. It was originally bred as a bittering hop back in 1985, but has recently been recognizes as a Dual-Purpose hop that is well rounded and suited for many different styles. It has predominately spicy and piney characteristics that transfer through into the flavour and aroma. Chinook also contributes bright grapefruit notes that accentuate its clean bitterness.
