I enjoy the heavy piney Chinook character, and I grow it. It's a beast. It grew up into our plum tree 15 feet away. I just brewed an IPA this morning with 1 ounce of Chinook at 60 minutes, assuming about 13% AA based on previous years. I followed it with 1 ounce of Cascade at 30 minutes, 15 minutes, 5 minutes and at FO, 1 ounce Amalia at 5 and FO and 1 more ounce of Chinook at FO. The boiled wort tasted amazing. I used 0.5 ounce of Chinook as a FWH on the last IPA with some other bittering charges along the way in the boil (55 IBU's calculated), and I didn't think it was bitter enough. On this batch, I've calculated bitterness to be 65 IBU's. I'm thinking this is going to be a much more balanced beer. I do enjoy Nugget and grow that one too. Never used it in an IPA. I'll have to try that. I like the nice clean bittering of Nugget for my dark beers.
