Not to knock the yeast, I am sure it is great, but I don't order from AHS, and was thinking of doing so just for that yeast. No sense in that for me unless it makes a difference.

I'll post the scores and comments from the certified judge

Greenbelt: 32

Aroma: Floral hop boquet, some sweet malt, grassy. Some yeast esters as it warms/settles (9)

Appearance: Muddly light brown, thich white head with excellent retention (1)

Flavor: Sharp hop bitterness, malt sweetness behind with a touch of crystal/caramel (15)

Mouthfeel: Medium body, highly carbonated, lingering astringency (3)

Overall: Base recipe has decent IPA character with perhaps a touch too much crystal. There is a lingering harshness which escapes explanation, possibly some grain flavors? (7)

WLP001: 39

Aroma: Sweet, midly floral, light hops (8)

Appearance: Hazy amber, thick head, good retention (3)

Flavor: Grapefruit, light malt, a touch sour, hint of metallic, finishes with a nice balance (16)

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, highly carbonated, a little creamy (4)

Overall: Nice clean IPA, hops are sharp, sugars balance reasonably well by are not very notable. Quite a citrus-fest (8)



So - In this case, this judge preferred the beer made with WLP001.....

I brewed an IPA with Greenbelt shortly after it was released (I had an order with Austin and thought "why not"). I will have to review my notes to make certain, but my present recollection is that the results were good but not great and that I preferred 1056 or 1272 or definitely PacMan to Greenbelt. As another member mentioned, Greenbelt seemed to mute the hops somewhat and I always go heavy on the hops in my IPA/IIPA's.

I kind of did the same experiment, but with Greenbelt vs. 1272. I brewed 7 gallons and split it, both have been on the yeast cake for about 1.5 weeks now. Ill make a thread in about a month, about the two and the results.

The comp organizer got back with me, and provided me the info I needed.

In this case WLP001 wins!
