Profile Chinook Michigan 2020

Chinook hops are a high alpha bittering hop suitable for any stage of the boil. Chinook is a natural choice for American-style Pale Ales and IPAs, but they also find their way into seasonal ales, barley wine and some porters and stouts. West Coast Chinook hops feature a pine-like, spicy bouquet with robust flavors of grapefruit. Midwest grown Chinook has a different flavor profile which is more pineapple and stone fruit.
