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.

Methinks that this reworked version of Genesis Ale could use some more reworking. He’Brew is known for making some great hoppy beers but this isn’t one of them. Don’t get me wrong, this "dry hopped session ale" has some nice flavors - caramel and mild hoppy bitterness, namely - but it’s not memorable. The aroma is very faint (so much for that dry hopping) and the flavors lack complexity. While I liked the dark orange color, the head was average at best and the mouthfeel wasn’t especially crisp. In the end, my main gripe with Genesis is a common lament from hop heads: not enough hops.

Bottle sample at a He’Brew tasting at Beer & Beyond. Almost clear amber-copper with a small head. Aroma of floral and fruity hops, caramel and spicy notes. Sweet, fruity and caramel malts flavors, mild hoppy bitterness. Light-medium bodied, dry and crispy. Not fresh enough, but still nice.

Bottle sample at He’Brew Brewery tasting at Beer&Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear orange with small white head. Sweetish malty aroma, caramel, toffee. Flavor of sweet malt, light bitterness. Dry bitter aftertaste. Low to medium body.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light slightly foamy and clingy lacing sticking nicely to the glass. The smell had some light sweet citrus hops and a little bit of caramel malt thrown in there. The taste was mainly sweet but had a light bitterness to it. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly good sessionability about it. The carbonation struck my tongue harsh enough to definitely be an APA. Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA worthy of having again.

DSG (6105) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle sample at a He’Brew tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and citric hops, slightly stale, with caramel, malt, biscuits and a bit of fruitiness. Sweetish malty flavor, a bit biscuity and caramelly, with some fruitiness and slightly stale hops bitterness, a bit citric. Medium-bodied. Decent.

Amber color with off-white head. Some caramel aroma. Nice hopper flavor. Slightly too bitter an aftertaste, but overall decent.

Copper/gold color with a medium white head. It has an almost cheesy aroma with a tinge of alcohol and hints of grass and flowers. The taste is equal parts sweet and sour, both are light to medium. It has a light body and a thin (but somewhat oily) texture. The finish is slightly bitter. It’s somewhat of a complex beer with it’s own unique thing going on. I doubt I’d pay bar price for this and I’m not sure I’d want a whole 6pk.

Appearance: pours with a medium light tan head that dissipates pretty quick, the beer is a nice bronze color, cloudy Aroma: malt, caramel, sweet, some citrus, flowers, Taste: light malt sweetness followed by an average bitterness, grain, has a sort of wort taste to it Palate: lively carbonation, has a light mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste Overall: this is an interesting beer, a light malt sweetness with a nice bitter kick to it as well, would make a great session ale, pretty good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BLADT (630) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle pour. Opaque, medium reddish brown. A half inch of white head, with lacing. Canned tangerines meet the nose first, but dampens quickly. Mild toast and apples cider. Sweet, seemingly by design. Medium to light body. Malt forward on the taste, rounded by some orange hop. A bit bland with a kvass like aftertaste.

Draft. Nose is a dusty malt character that reminds me of Munich malt. A slightly grassy hop but not that prevalent.
