I have 2 lbs of whole leaf.
Description is:
A very clean hop, with a very orange, slight grapefruit, tropical (but not mango/guava, more like pineapple), strawberry, and melon.

Hereís my recipe:

Batch size: 11 gallons

14.11lb Canadian Pale malt
9.04lb Maris Otter Malt
1lb Carastan Malt
1lb Carapils Malt

1.76 oz Belma 60 mins
1.23 oz Belma 30 mins
1.23 oz Belma 5 mins
1.06 oz Belma 0 mins
1.06 oz Belma dry

Safale US - 05

Sorry the weights all look screwy - I brew in metric so these are all converted to US.

No idea on the hops, but at 5.25 a lb, I am really tempted to get a few lbs to try em out!

I have pick up a few pounds of Belma as well. I am thinking a single hop IPA. That way I get a good feel for the hop.

I would double or even triple the last three hop additions you have, but it really depends on what you are trying to achieve with these hops.

A brand new hop with yummy sounding characteristics for only $5.25 a pound? Sounds to good to be true. Please update this thread. Thanks!
