Do you think so? Perhaps more like it, but I find that I love Chinook, and am not too fond of Simocoe. It can be ok (in 60 and 90 min) but I wouldn't have thought that they are really all that similar... Maybe I don't know what I'm tasting... but I thought Chinook, Columbus, and Simcoe were all pretty distinct.
