COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the new recipe replacing the original He’Brew Genesis ale. Balanced between a West Coast style pale and amber ale with just enough malt sweetness to highlight a flurry of hop aroma and flavor. Witness the evolution of our original creation.

rlgk (10061) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle at Bishops Arms, Stockholm. Amber/copper beer with a small offwhite head. Malty citrus aroma, rather sweet, caramel, some brown sugar. Malty flavor, fruity, caramel, brown sugar, a bit thin and lacking character.

emacgee (3958) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Pours a murky copper amber with one finger of sandy tan head. Muddled nose, oxidized/aged hops with a papery malt character. Also.....5.6% session beer????? Terribly oxidized and unclean. A mess of a beer. Gross

DerHopKopf (46) - Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Pours a hazy copper/amber color with fair white head. Aroma is different and difficult to pin down. Sweet caramel and honey with earthy hops clashes a bit for my nose. Mild fruit. Taste is mostly bitter with some sweetness near the end. Finish is again mostly bitter. Hops really stand out in this one but it just doesnt balance or finish quite as well as I would hope. Not a bad beer, but not one I would run to again.

Maris (955) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2012
From a 355ml bottle on 26 September 2012. Pours a clear deep golden with a medium fine head. The aroma features caramel malt and some fruity hops. The flavour is bursting with caramel, toffee and butterscotch maltiness, which is balanced by a reasonably firm hop bitterness (the dry hopping is noticeable). A quite a distinctive and flavoursome ale.

M_Jager (106) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2012
Poured copper-ish colour with good head. Had a nice hint of bitterness but not overpowering. Good beer.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2012
5.6% is considered a session ale? I need to get off this planet. It’s a good beer, but please - session should not be mentioned in this bible book. Low rankings purely on the misleading name. Please. Call me an asshole.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle from AZ Wine. Filtered amber color with a frothy beige head. Smells odd. Distant hops, toffee, red licorice. Tastes of sweet malts, cardamom, pale malt. Too candy shop.

bluevegie (3049) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2012
Clear amber body with short head. Oranges on the aroma, medium body, grapefruit and light caramel notes. Tasty.

tnkw01 (1021) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle. Copperish-amber color. Decent head. Aroma, that pleasant floral hop aroma not the nasty one. Same with the taste. Nice delish floral-citrus hops taste with slight malt undertones. Not bad.

IPA_Monster (2) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2012 does not count
Picked this one up at Whole Foods from the bottle. Beer poured a dark haze with nice lacing. Pleasant citrus aroma and nice initial flavor. However, the finish was rather bland/weak without the expected bite. Thus, I would say it’s smooth but not particularly memorable.
