I drank one of my Belma Belgian "IPA's" tonight after almost three weeks in the bottle. I added two ounces of Belma and one ounce of Citra at flame out and then dry hopped the same. Wyeast Belgian Ardennes 3522 yeast. This beer tastes like tropical fruit punch. I actually really like it, it's refreshing and different then my other beers which are mainly American IPAs or Barleywines. SWMBO doesn't like it but she doesn't like Belgian yeasts.

Did you post this recipe? I didn't see it and I am always interested in delicious. Got 2 pounds of Belma to use.

I really hop these turn out well, if not belma will turn into a really cheap bittering hop for me. Hope to brew with them in a week or so myself. Either way 5 bucks for 20 oz of a nice bittering hop is a win any way you look at it

It's a very light IPA... would go down really good on a hot summer day chilled to about 34F.

You'll mute most of the flavor if you drink it that cold... Thats pretty darn cold.

Cool... I was thinking that American ale II would be perfect for this hop
