Title: Chinook, Columbus, Strata IPA?
Post by: trapae on December 20, 2021, 11:14:49 pm
Thinking of doing a equal parts Chinook, Columbus, Strata IPA?  Magnum 60 min, then equal parts Chinook, Columbus, Strata at 15min, 7min, whirlpool, and DryHop. 
Opinions?

If you like dank, then this should hit the mark. I only used Strata once (when it was still X-331), but I got more resin and pine from it than citrus or berries. Personally, I'd bitter with CTZ or Chinook and go full West Coast with this hop combo. It should be perfect for a biting, stick-to-your-tongue IPA.

I love strata, but its a different beast than chinook and columbus. Strata is much fruitier.

Definitely more of the cliche new school hops but very good. I guess it depends on the goal of the beer.
