Anyone have any tasting notes from their brewing adventures with this hop? I've got a pound and wondering what to do with it.

I'm thinking IPA obviously, but maybe a black IPA? Thoughts?

I tasted my hydrometer sample of a belma hopped amber. It was definitely citrusy but with a spiciness I wasn't expecting. I think my next all belma will be a white IPA.

I am in the process of transferring mine to secondary now. I'm going to ask the guy I got the hops from for some to dry hop my amber with.

After tasting what I pulled for the gravity reading, the bitterness is smooth, but my recipe was hop-bursted. I the taste and aroma seem more like a sutttle apricot mixed with tangerine instead of orange like others have reported.

Because of the higher alpha % of this hop I'll only dry hop for 5 days before kegging.

I pulled a gravity sample but my orange blossom honey Belgian just has too many other ingredients like the honey and coriander but I did get some tropical out of it - I hit it with late hops of Belma - it's fermented with chouffe yeast so I'm psyched

I'm very excited about this hop in session pale ales

I've used this in a white IPA and smells great into secondary. Little spice with fruity tones. Have it in with cascades and centennial.

Was going to order 1 pound but shipping was outrageous, so I ordered 2, for only 50 cents more in shipping. Just got them today and had to break into them, and I am glad I went with 2 pounds. Looking forward to putting these to use
