Belma hops are a recent addition from Hops Direct and Puterbaugh Farms in the Yakima Valley. Belma has been tested as a dual-use hop and found to have an ambrosial mix of orange, melon, strawberry and pineapple with a slight hint of grapefruit. Backing that up, OSU created a Pale Malt with Belma which carried those same aroma and flavor characteristics.
To date, Belma has also seen plenty of activity in the recreational brewing space with many home brewers documenting its use online in Pale Ales, IPAs, Blonde Ales and more. Virtually all have given it favorable marks. It was released in 2012.
