(HPP210) US Chinook hops is a favorite among micro brewers and homebrewers alike. It is used both as an aroma hop and a bittering hop. It's a prime choice for single hop beers. The bittering flavors of US Chinook hops are clean and straight-forward. A slight leaning towards a spicy, resiny flavor can be noticed, along with a touch of citrus or grape fruit, but not much else. The character of this hop comes from its aroma. The bouquet is somewhat layered and unique with the notes of pine trees, spice and rich herbs. You can also notice a touch of citrus. You can find US Chinook hops used in many beers. The most common being American Pale Ales. But you can also find it being used in many other homebrews such as: American IPAs, Stouts, Porters, Barley Wines and even some darker, seasonal beers.
- Alpha Acid 12-14%
- Clean bittering wih a slight spicy flavor

Are your pelletized hops compressed, leaf hops?
These are fresh leaf hops that have been shredded, cleaned of seeds, etc, then pulverized and compressed into the pellets. This is the most common way hops are processed and sold. More hop resin is extracted and exposed this way, which creates more efficiency. Pelletized hops also stay fresher longer in this form as well.

How long will your hops stay fresh after I receive them and what is the best way to store them.
Our pelletized hops are sealed in oxygen-barrier plastic bags along with nitrogen gas. This keeps the hop pellets very stable and fresh while in storage. If the hop pellets are stored at room-temperature, we do not recommend buying more than you can use in a year`s time, but if stored in a refrigerator or similar, the hop pellets should stay fresh for up to two years if un-opened.
