Hints of spice, hints of grapefruit with distinct piney aroma.
Chinook hops are a very distinctive dual-purpose hop used in Ales for both bittering and flavor/aroma. Chinook hops are commonly used in West Coast style IPAs. Distinct, medium intensity spice and pine characteristics with subtle notes of grapefruit.

Tremendous value for hops! Brewing is more fun when you have great ingredients like these Chinook hops. Using them mostly as a first wort hop, then pulling them out a few minutes after the boil starts. Will use the rest for dry hopping. Thanks Farmhouse!
Good hops for almost any IPA. Good service by Farmhouse. I use it primarily for bittering but first wort hop, maybe why I notice none of the harshness others have.
This hop gives a very pleasant grapefruit flavor on its own, with some pine and spice. Surprisingly good in a SMaSH, and goes really well with citra. I haven't experienced the harsh bitterness that many note, but that may due to year-by-year variations. When young it can have a bit of cat pee that goes away with age.
I really don't like this hop, it is total cat pee on it's own as a dry hop and has a spicy flavor I'm not fond of that really cut through other hops even when used at less than 20%.
I love this hop, especially when I'm trying an arrogant b@@##$d clone. My fermenator smells amazing right now. Floral, piney, citrusy, pretty much just like a bag of hops.
