First had: on tap at DFH, Rehoboth Beach, DE

A pale ale brewed exclusively with Belma hops (a relatively new type from Yakima), and dry-hopped with the same.

Cloudy amber pour, with a small foamy head that receded to a ringlet, leaving a bit of soapy lacing on the glass. Aroma was pretty basic for a pale ale: crisp citrusy hops, biscuity malts, both in good balance. Taste was again pretty standard stuff, the Belma hops lending a pretty intense bitterness up front, citrus pith, pineapple rind, with a biscuity malt sweetness coming in to keep things in check. Medium body, moderate carbonation, and pretty easily drinkable. Not bad overall, but nothing truly memorable.
