I've got an all-chinook APA boiling right now. Never used Chinook before, but they're sure smelling good right about now.



That is all

Have used chinook primarily for bittering in my APA's but have never used it as a single hop. Would be interested to hear how this turns out.

I've heard about Chinook's contribution as far as end state is concerned.

Describe the smell during boil, though! Need to live vicariously this moment.

I just did Northern brewer's Chinook IPA extract kit and it was excellent. Chinook at 60 minutes, 5 minutes, flameout, and dry-hop. It was a winner. I don't have a terribly educated palate yet, but I'd describe it as a smoky citrus kind of aroma. I served it at a barbecue and everybody liked it.

I've made an all chinook IPA before as well, it was delicious. It tastes a lot like it smells, you're in for a treat!

'smoky citrus' is a good explanation. Sort of cascadey, with an earthy dankness to it.

I'm calling the beer "Old 'Nookie"

This discussion is killing me considering my Chinook IPA keg kicked this week and I have no pipeline to speak of right now.

I made one, it was delicious. I plan to rebrew it at some point. Piney goodness...mine has never tasted or smelled citrusy, I don't know where people get this from. My Chinook was earthy and piney.

I made an all Chinook IPA as well. I would describe mine as "apricot-y"

Since we are discussing Chinook - what does everyone think it would pair well with? I made a Summit/Nugget IPA and I keep thinking Chinook at bittering and at flavor (about 30-20 from flameout) would be a great addition to that recipe. Plus I have 2 oz whole leaf Chinook in the freezer I am dying to use...

Any others with good pairing hops?
