Favorite IPA Yeast ?

So far I've used WL 001 and US-05. I'd like to try some different yeasts for a hoppy West Coast IPA. I was thinking about trying Wyeast London Ale 1318 or Northwest 1332. Any recommendations?

WY1272, or 2450 if you can find it. I'm not a big fan of the 1332.

+1 on the 1272.

It's not as dry a finish as old dependable 1056.

Hands down, the best IPA yeast I've used. I'm stretching out my smack pack for as long as I can.

Just keep bugging Brian at Wyeast to re-release it!

Same here. Don't like 1332. I bought 2 packs of 2450, just in hopes that it would be as good as described. It most certainly is.

AFAIK it's only avalable during the early summer. If they get enough interest maybe they will keep it on full time. It's odd to think that DC's favorite would be seasonal but they sell enough ringwood to keep avalable full time? Oh well, it's easy to bitch when you're not paying the bills. :lol:

I love US-05 fermented at 64°F. Can't beat it for simplicity and repeatability. :D

For an English IPA I like WLP007. For American IPA I use US-05 exclusively. That said I have made some great hoppy American IPAs with WLP007 that I really enjoyed.

+1 - love US-05, though I will have to try Denny's on some IPA soon.

The mouthfeel is the biggest thing with this yeast. Silky, but non-cloying. It also has a subtle estery quality that is hard to describe.
