It's just flat out perfection once it sticks to the glass.
Can hops really have an impact on lacing?

I'd say that an excess use (or as I'd like to call, normal use) of oily post-boil and/or dry hops are a big contributor to that sticky type of lacing we see in IPAs.

I made a five gallon batch of all belma ipa as follows:

10# 2row
1/2# honey malt
1/2# crystal 60l

Mashed @152 for 60 min.

1oz belma pellets @ FWH
.5oz belma pellets@ 60min
1oz belma pellets@ 10 min
1oz belma pellets@ 5min
.5oz belma pellets@ 1min
1oz belma whole @ flameout 200F
1oz belma whole @ flameout 170F

2oz belma whole dryhop
1 rehydrated pack of US 05 and a 60 second blast of pure o2.
Og 1.060
Fg 1.014

I found the flavor and aroma of this hop to be fantastic. One member of my homebrew club said that it reminded him of an orange flavored starburst. I think that the hop is a bit one dimensional by itself but can be used with other citrusy hops that complement each other well. Great hop for the 5.25 I paid for a whole pound!

I am still incredibly stoked about the lacing the belma added. Tis a beautiful thing

You need to take bigger sips.



I agree on the lacing. It's flat out stupid how well it laces and sticks to the glass. I have to assume that Belma is at blame for this.

True, but this is the pale ale I made that for some reason was all bitter. I added Belma for an aroma dry hop in the keg which produced the lacing/head retention and did nothing for aroma, so i added some of what I believe was Cascade from an open pouch from a previous batch which gave it smell but no flavor. Its good, its just not that balanced which makes it take longer to drink. Was my first full boil AG, so it is still a success in my eyes, just not what I planned on. I am still amazed with the change that adding it did though.

Any high oil content, high alpha West Coast hop will add that type of lacing if you use enough of it late and in the dryhop. I've personally seen it with Amarillo, Chinook, Columbus, Citra, Simcoe, Centennial, Summit, Belma, etc.

Just tapped a Belma, Galena, Chinook(all dry hops) IPA...Tastes suspiciously like two hearted with maybe a bit more fruit and citrus. Will mix it up and dry hop with belma next time.

I took a Belma APA to our local homebrew club meeting last night... Excellent reviews all around. There are a lot of competitions coming up excited to use this hop.

My Belma with Centential, Belma with Cascade, and Belma with Centential, Cascade and Simcoe all were nice. I did not care too much for the Belma SMASH.
