WLP090 San Diego Super Yeast
A super clean, super-fast fermenting strain. A low ester-producing strain that results in a balanced, neutral flavor and aroma profile. Alcohol-tolerant and very versatile for a wide variety of styles. Similar to California Ale Yeast WLP001 but it generally ferments faster.

Bitterness and gravity vary batch to batch.

Draught at the taproom in San Diego. Clear golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Hoppy pine and tangerine aroma, lemon juice, pine, some grapes. Hoppy pine flavor, mango, passion fruit, caramel, citrus, orange zest, some peach. Really refreshing.

Tabberer Flight – India Pale Ale, 6.8 % ABV
All pour gold with a white head, with 515 being the haziest, and 090 the clearest. Hops are relatively restrained in this one, with light fruity notes and mild bitterness in all four examples.
WLP 028 Edinburgh Scottish Ale Yeast – Mild diacetyl, and a bit fruitier than the other four examples (2.5).
WLP 072 French Ale Platinum Yeast – Moderate perceived bitterness compared to the other examples, with banana, pear, and generic fruity sweetness (3.0).
WLP 090 San Diego Super Yeast – Fruity hops, pear, and mild floral bitterness in the finish (3.1).
WLP 515 Antwerp Ale Yeast – Mildest of the four examples, with light herbal and rustic notes (3.1).

bu11zeye (12604) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2014
(Draft) Pours a hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, earth, grass, and light bread. Flavor of earth, grass, and minerals with a dry, bitter finish.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
On tap at the tasting room when they first opened. Pours with a crystal clear, paler gold body with a long lasting white head. Clean aromas, malty, green hops, seltzer, minerals, grassy, some malt but mostly clean. Flavors are a touch salty, some minerals, grassy, malt centric, pretty dry, grassy and bitter. Seems to accentuate malt over hops (slightly), neutral/clean, and very dry. Medium carbonation and medium bodied.

brokensail (15593) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Pours a relatively clear golden color with a white head. Nose is somewhat buttery, almost like buttered popcorn. A bit of bready malt sweetness. There are some decent citrus notes and a mild fruitiness, though. The flavor has plenty of the buttered popcorn character and quite a bit of fruity esters. Some citrusy hops, a light maltiness, and some bread. Not very enjoyable.
