Default Delta Hops; English or American?

Delta Hops; Cross between Cascade and Fuggles, slightly spicy with hint of citrus.

American or English Pale Ale?

Anyone tried them? Had Direct Hops add a pound to my last order; for $8, couldn't go too far wrong!

Currently planning ESB Malt, 0.5 lbs Biscuit, 0.75 lbs Caristan, and WLP022 (Essex), for an English Pale Ale.

you should do a SMaSH with vienna or MO and test them out.

I made a SmaSh with them - they're along the lines of a Willamette, tho' not as aromatic. Definitely a subtle hop so I'd say English.

Thanks, I'll go with my original plan.

Planning on adding .75 ozs at: FWH, 15, 8, and 0, and bittering with a neutral hop. 43 IBUs, 1.054.

Default Delta ESB

I have been making an ESB using Delta hops exclusively. It won 3rd place in English pales at the Ohio Beer Week homebrew competition last month.

I made a beer pretty heavy on the Delta that should be drinkable in a month or so. Used Delta the whole way through with .5oz Amarillo at 60 and 1.5oz Am at 15. The base is Live Oak Hefe clone. 3 gals went on WLP300 hef yeast and 3 went on my custom mix of WLP001/565/530. Come to think of it, I may not be the best person to report back on the influence of Delta hops.

I bought some from my LHBS, they said they are a hybrid of Cascade and Fuggles.

They smell magnificent and I put an ounce in my IPA along with the normal Cs, 1/2oz at 5min, the other half at flameout. I will bottle tomorrow and taste. I've heard they are nothing to be surprised by. I would believe, howver, they could be great in a brown, mild, or ESB as mentioned above.

They're definitely subtle. I wasn't incredibly impressed with them.
