Description

Chinook hops, a classic American hop variety, has a prominent place in the hearts of both brewers and beer enthusiasts. Developed in the 1980s by crossing Petham Golding, Chinook hops have become a staple in the brewing industry due to their unique and multifaceted aroma and flavour profile.

With an alpha acid content ranging from 12% to 14%, Chinook hops are regarded as a high-alpha variety, making them an excellent choice for providing bitterness during the boiling stage of the brewing process. This bitterness serves as a solid foundation upon which brewers can build the desired taste of their beers.

Chinook hops’ aroma is distinct and captivating, combining earthy, piney, and resiny notes with subtle hints of citrus and floral undertones. This intriguing blend of scents contributes to the overall complexity of the beer, making it stand out from the crowd. It is this complexity that has made Chinook hops a preferred choice in various beer styles, including American-style Ales, India Pale Ales (IPAs), Stouts, and even Barley wines.

Moreover, Chinook hops’ versatility extends beyond their role as a bittering and flavour hop. They are also prized for their exceptional aromatic qualities, making them a popular option for dry hopping. This technique allows brewers to further enhance the beer’s aroma, adding an extra layer of sensory pleasure for beer enthusiasts.

Beyond their flavour and aroma contributions, Chinook hops also boast excellent storage stability and disease resistance, providing brewers with a reliable and consistent option for crafting their brews.

As a result of their reliability, unique characteristics, and long-established presence in the brewing world, Chinook hops have earned a distinguished place in both commercial breweries and homebrewing operations. Whether used sparingly to provide a touch of bitterness or generously to create an aromatic masterpiece, Chinook hops continue to be cherished for their ability to add depth and complexity to a wide range of beer styles.

They have cemented their place as a timeless classic in the brewing world, offering a potent combination of earthy, piney, and citrusy notes that elevate a wide range of beer styles, making them a cherished ingredient among brewers seeking to craft bold and flavourful brews.
