For the hops I divided the 2 oz I had into 4,1/2 oz portions
I'm brewing this now and plan on using them at 30, 20, 10, and 1 minute.

Yeast, S-05

OG 1.056, FG 1.015, 15 SRM, 33.4 IBU (tinseth), 5.5% abv, (4% abw)

I'll keg this in a couple of weeks and then give it a week to carbonate, so I should be able to tell everyone how it came out in 3 weeks.

Thanks for the hops Dave,
Today seemed like a good day to post up what my results were. I dry hopped with an additional 2 oz of leaf belma hops for 10 days. Now that it is carbonated and chilled in the keg, there is an orange aroma and taste. The flavor/aroma is there, but it doesn't have the nose or taste that a cascade or centennial does. The taste and aroma is a very light orange, almost star fruit like or some other tropical fruit. It's good, but not potent. I would recommend this hop for bittering and light flavor, but not aroma. I should do well when paired with a stronger flavor/aroma hop.

Base recipe from NB Breakwater Pale Ale recipe.
I am lust getting this to secondary tonight but using 4 oz instead of 3. Tried a little during transfer and this is a very smooth bitterness. Almost a bit "Lemony" I would say this hop would be a good base bittering hop in the recipe I posted but keep the original citra dry hop. Guess I will see how this is after a couple weeks.

I think a nice pale is something to start with.. It's what I did, but took it more than a pale, and less than an IPA.. Personal preference.

I think from what I've read, and found in using them myself.. They would be nice in a session ale, or a saison coupled with another hop.

I did a SMASH with these, CMC 2row, 4oz belma at 20min and less, wy1007. I get melon, tropical fruity and orange. I can see these being well liked when mixed with other American hops in a APA or IPA but I personally can't see much other use for them. One comment I got on it was "It is like drinking a flower" Distinctive and pleasant but not my thing. I am not a huge fan of American hops though so take this with a grain of salt if you are.

Racked over to secondary today after 4 weeks of primary. Filtered with a nylon hop bag and Racked onto 3 oz. of Belma, whole hops. It is at the FG of 1.011 . The smack pack worked well and I used a swamp cooler for fermentation. Now with my new chest freezer I will be able to cold crash these leaves out. I cold crashed the primary at 40ish degrees for a week so it was remarkably clear, which was nice as well.

I have to say the flavor is fantastic. It is orange, yet spicy sort of like chinook. If this tastes as good carb'ed as it does right now I will definitely be making it again.

Im sorry but I dont really like the Belma that much. I used a lot of it in the boil and then dryhopped with it. But I had to add some better hops to make it tatse decent. Gawd and I bought 2 lbs of this stuff too.
