As the description says, this yeast is very clean and ferments quickly. I use it frequently. With a starter, it gets to work quickly and can convert even heavy beers in a shorter period of time.

White Labs nails it again
I stumbled upon this yeast a few years ago when my LHBS was out of WLP001 and I have never looked back.
Formerly San Diego Super yeast, the intended style is evident and it's definitely up to to that task. It's an excellent attenuator and a great flocculator which produces some seriously clear West Coast IPAs. There's no question that it finishes clean and accentuates your hops but something about this strain is more nuanced with regard to the malt profile than other American yeast strains I've tried.
No matter what, build up a healthy 2L starter and you've got a sure-fire winner for your next West Coast IPA.

Strong yeast
Had OG of 1.084 and used this yeast. FG was taken down to 1.009. Could not believe how much this dried my beer out. Very clean too with no off flavors.

My new house yeast
Super reliable and always attenuates. Produces a nice clean ale for any style that you want a clean profile. It also accentuates hops for IPAs and APAs. I recently made an imperial stout and it’s come out beautifully! Love WLP090

Tried this in annual Barley Wine
Made a 2 Liter starter with this yeast for annual barleywine.
This yeast was roaring in the fermentation bucket. Blew the lid off twice and I use blow off hoses in the lids. Then it went to just shooting foam out through the blow off hose until my airlock (bottle with water) overflowed.
Tasted good upon kegging, but won't taste again for several months.
Just be prepared for an aggressive fermentation.

Super fast, super clean results (not clean fermenting)
Another great yeast. But this one takes off and can be violent on a big beer. Be ready to clean your fermenting area and make sure the lid is still on your bucket.

have not seen the difference
I saw little or no difference in onset of fermentation or total time (well maybe one day?) Generally still 4-5 day ferment @ 65 degrees and 1.5 liter starter for 5 gallons.
Good clean profile though

Great Yeast Strains
I love this yeast. It goes fast and drops out quickly. I'm not sure how the flavor develops yet, but I'll keep a taste bud out for it when I tap the keg.

It is what it says
A great all-around yeast for a wide range of beer styles. Quick and clean, what more can you ask for?

Although most everyone has a loyalty to WLP001, WLP090 is easily a perfect substitute for any beer that you'd want WLP001 for. I haven't experienced any delay in fermentation intitiation or completion and I've never experienced any esters from the recommended range of fermentation temperatures.

WLP090 is a great go-to yeast!
