bigd,
All the reading material I have regards Chinook hops as a bittering hop. Ranging in the low to mid teens in AAU%. All say it has a strong resinous aroma used for strong bittering ability. Aromas listed from heavy grapefriut to distinct piney aroma..Yuch a beer that tastes like pine-o-clean.
I suspect that it may be similar to pride of ringwood hops. excellent bittering hop but keep it below 20IBU's if you want a nice flavour from it.

Just my thoughts not from my experience, I have had others tell me about the P.O.R hops. Hope it helps ;)
