General Information
Method: All Grain

Trying out a new hop, Delta, with this brew. Seemed like a good fit with the Belgian Pale Ale style - spicy with a slight citrus notes that will play well with the sweetness of the specialty malts and the toastiness of the Vienna.

The Antwerp Ale yeast is reportedly the DeKoninck strain that is described by White Labs as:

Clean, almost lager like Belgian type ale yeast. Good for Belgian type pales ales and amber ales, or with blends to combine with other Belgian type yeast strains. Biscuity, ale like aroma present. Hop flavors and bitterness are accentuated. Slight sulfur will be produced during fermentation, which can give the yeast a lager like flavor profile.

With that in mind, I'm making this beer intentionally hop-forward with a higher than normal bittering charge and elevated flavor and aroma additions.
