I like the spicy fruitiness a lot and its really smooth but its not something I can use in many beers and unfortunately I thought it would be very similar to citra and bought 5lbs.

Tasting mine now and I agree, it's very smooth. I used in a blend, interested how the single hop versions turn out.

I have a pound of this in the freezer, considering doing a smoked IPA. Any thoughts on how these would taste alongside smoke?

My sample tastings make me think they would go VERY well in a smoked IPA. I think you could go fairly heavy with them and be happy with it. I wouldn't hesitate to dry hop with 4oz or so.

I like the sound of this! Just waiting for some different kinds of pellets to come online before I place my order, but Belma will definitely be on there.

Just split a pound of these. Pretty stoked. Next brew day is a quad, but after that I'm trying to determine where I should use these. I have had success with citra in a pale, wit, and saison... thinking i may do one of those. Or I might just do a smash w/2-row and chico and hop the **** out of it with belma. WE SHALL SEE.

How long does hopsdirect take to ship, generally?

When my pound shows up, I'm going to do a simple pale I think with it. 2 row or some GP, a fistful of crystal, and try the belma straight through, or maybe cut it with some cascade or amarillo in the middle for some layered flavor, but hop burst it all in the end. I'll bitter with the Belma though, and add it for every addition too.

After dryhopping my pale ale with 2 oz of Belma for a little over a week, I get a nice peppery spiciness but no real floral or fruit -- or maybe they're being overpowered by the spice. I threw in another ounce last night and we'll see if anything changes.

Would you guys say a 2 to 1 ratio of Citra to Belma would be good for the dryhop in an American IIPA? I'm wondering if I should go 1:1, 1:2, or 2:1 because I haven't sampled or smelled Belma yet.

I'm brewing up two, 3.5 gallon batches on Sunday in the drier West Coast style... one with Wyeast London Ale 1028 and one with San Diego Super. Warrior to bitter at 60, Citra & Belma for the late additions and dryhop. Perhaps I should do 2:1 for the SD Super and 1:2 for the London Ale batch.
