I think it will be beautiful over the archway into the garden

We grew some a few years ago and they were pretty healthy and strong growers.

Good for IPA's with an edge, most people say a pine-like flavor or spicy. If done right I think it's one of the best hops. Reminds me of good beer from a small batch micro brewery before they go big.

Hop greens are very good eating. I grown them exclusively for their greens. The tender new shoots in the spring are cut and steamed or sauteed. Very good, IMO.

Chinook hops rock!
I planted my bine in spring ‘18. It came back strong this year, despite the cold and rain. It’s a beautiful addition to my Brooklyn rooftop container garden.

Chinook and Nugget Hops
Both varieties very vigorous, about 3 vines each plant, reaching more than 10 feet in length, only 1 year after planting.

Fall 2018 planted at 6,400 ft. elevation in COLORADO
I took a chance last fall and planted 1 Chinook hops. Thus far, in late summer 2019, the plant is healthy and growing. There are no flowers, but I anticipate some next year.
So far, so good.
