My 2nd ever batch was the NB Chinook IPA kit. I still regard it as the best beer I've made to date. I dont know how to properly describe the hops, but i would say they are more piney/citrusey than their descriptions usually let on. Descriptions for the hop itself usually peg it as earthy/spicy. I think more of a heavy/dank from that description, but I didn't get that impression in the beer.
Probably not as citrusy as the well-known citrus-type hops, but I enjoyed the brew very much.
