Chinook

Hop Description

While Cascade, Centennial, and Columbus are considered the Three Cs of American craft brewing, Chinook is often lumped in as a fourth member of the elite group. Citrus takes a backseat to intense pine in this high-alpha dual-purpose variety, released by the USDA breeding program in 1985.
