WLP007 Dry English Ale Yeast
Clean, highly flocculent, and highly attenuative yeast. This yeast is similar to WLP002 in flavor profile, but is 10% more attenuative. This eliminates the residual sweetness, and makes the yeast well suited for high gravity ales. It is also reaches terminal gravity quickly. 80% attenuation will be reached even with 10% ABV beers.

Bitterness and gravity vary batch to batch.

August 2nd, 2013 - This review is going to bundle the three varieties of the IPA I enjoyed on my first visit here, spanning from the Centennial Single, to the El Dorado, and the Dry English Ale type (WLP007). Beginning with the first, the aroma is bright and heavy with citrus, mostly oranges, pineapple and grapefruit, though a heavy-ish creaminess to relax the astringency. The flavor is mildly hoppy, pronounced by the light palate. There’s a mild touch of pineapple, though barely ripened. All together, this is a perfect, crisp, enjoyable light, hoppy beer. Onto the El Dorado yeast version, the aroma is sweeter, with more custard and vanilla. This is reflected in the taste too, where the dessert flavors are joined by banana. This, too, is delicious, and could easily be on my top 10 of IPAs. Finally we end with the Dry English Ale (WLP 007), which returns to the ephemeral body of thy Single Centennial, but expressing more pear and custard. And this is even better than the El Dorado version, trumping my expectations as we move forward in the sampler. That’s a rare experience, and it’s all thanks to White Labs’ powerful expertise with microbes.

BMan1113VR (7911) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
On tap at the tasting room when they first opened. Pours with a crystal clear golden hue with a medium sized white head. Aromas are lightly hoppy, medium-light fruit esters, pineapple, pears, some grassy notes, bready malt and hay. Flavors are malty, medium sweet, bready, light ester, biscuit, mild salinity. A touch green tasting. Doesn’t showcase the hop character as much as the others, and a bit fruitier. Medium bubbles.

(Draught) Pours a hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, florals, and grain. Flavor of earth, pine, and florals with a dry, bitter finish.
