(General AA range 13-16% Current AA range is 12-13%). The whole hop version of our popular Chinook hops. A very distinctive dual-purpose hop used in Ales for both bittering and flavor/aroma. Used a lot in IPA's. Some consider the bittering quality of this hop is a bit rough because it lingers in your mouth after swallowing. However, some brewers can't get enough. The flavor/aroma is spicy and unique, with a huge following of loyal fans.
