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.

(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 (7904) - 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 (13623) - Orange County, 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.
