Great for British style IPA
This is a malt forward IPA yeast that results in a full-bodied IPA Probably not the yeast to use if you are looking for a clean, crisp finish, like two-hearted ale. I will definitely use it again.

Great NEIPA yeast
Great dry yeast choice for hazy ipa. Takes off within hours and can be at FG within a week (although it’s good to employ a diacetyl rest with this strain) First generations have higher attenuation, around 80-83 percent, so be prepared for that. Esters are very fruity - strong apricot notes that play well with many types of hops.

Fast, poor flocculation, Not sure I like the flavor
Brewed 15 gallons, used two packs of yeast in a 4L starter. Fermentation started almost immediately, was done in about 60 hours at 67 degrees. For me it finished a few SG points higher than normal, and the beer was very cloudy even after a normal cold crash period prior to emptying the fermenter. Don't think I'll use it again unless the flavor really knocks me out. I didn't love the flavor in the hydrometer tube sample I tasted.

An interesting option
I was looking to brew a juicy IPA but not necessarily the very hazy, OJ type and read about this yeast so I thought I'd give it a try. I need to tweak the recipe but this yeast has lots of potential for many different styles.
It reminds me a bit of some of the Kveik strains and how well they pair with the citrus and tropical hops.

12 Grams and Eight Days Later..
Seems to attenuate well. Has a very peachy flavor and smell as well as vanilla. It really lights up the fermenter. Ran batch pictured in mid to high 60's and it was an under 5% beer (blew all over inside domed top) The 500 gram pack makes it economical to not bother with starters and cultivation which is a nice plus. The vanilla flavor works with and against certain beer styles so it is definitely niche in my book.

A must buy!
This yeast is stunning! Very versatile and always finishes... NEIPA, Irish Red, Best bitter etc... top cropping for 2nd or 3rd use kicks off in minutes not hours.
