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.

355ml bottle. Salty, harshly yeasty, slight artificial lime. This beer really sucks.

pours hazy light golden with a small white head, some retention and lacing. honeyed and lightly spicy maltiness, touch of caramel, some apple juice notes, floral, almost bland herbalness, faint citrus and pine. nothing more, really. average carbonation, light body - oily, relatively dry and muted grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. not what i would call sessionnable either. average ipa at best.

ContemplateBeer (1507) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Aroma: Light grapefruit; very slight Myrcene from the Simcoe (I’m guessing) with a touch of crackery malt. Appearance: Light copper pour, leaving a film of sticky white head. Flavor: Grapefruit is balanced by crackery malts; a touch of Myrcene rounds things out. Palate: Light body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Middle of the road for me, just seemed muted and understated.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottle says 5.5% A: Pours a hazy dark copper color. The head is a two finger yellow shade. While it fades to one finger relatively rapidly, at that point the head retains itself quite well. S: There’s a decent amount of piny, weed-like dankness juxtaposing touches of grapefruit. Malts definitely come through with prevalent caramel and toffee. Not my preferred style of pale ale, but definitely acceptable. T: At first, there are wisps of dank weed backing a sweet-ish malt backbone, while the finish is mostly mild, pleasant grapefruit. Bitterness is well restrained. It kind of lacks flavor, to be honest. But there’s no one element that turns me away, either: it’s fairly harmonious and balanced. M: This is where this brew succeeds. It’s light-feeling, crisp, and goes down quite easy. The low carbonation actually works because the finish has a good dryness to it. O: Not overly interesting, but pleasant enough. I don’t really see how it’s a session ale at 5.5%. Not a bad beer, and not one I’d ever turn down; doubt I’d buy it for myself again, though.

Minderbinder (1700) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle 355ml. Pours amber with medium light-beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, caramel. Taste is of citrus, pine, malt, caramel, bitterness. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Ok balance. Overall: Good. Would be a tad too much on caramel, but a sharp bitterness kinda succeed to balance it. Is 5,6% sessionnable? Would have to drink a couple to know... Anyways, good hybrid.

Smells like honey thin cream head. Brown in color lots of floaters which I'm told is protein breakout. Taste is malt light hops little sour. Mouthfeel is surprisingly watery. Overall not great. There's no date on the bottle but my guess is this is old.

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods Plymouth. Pours clear medium copper with off-white head that laces well. Nose is caramel malt, hops, mild funk and florals. Tastes hoppy, crisp, with caramel malt, some late florals, and a finishing dryness with pineapple and grapefruit.

Drank from bottle so no info on appareance. Malty (toasty) aroma with some citrus/piney hops, but not too present. Taste starts bready and caramel malts, end with some hops, citrus,grapefruit, piney but not too much. Starts malty sweet and ends with a light hop bitterness. Bit dry and moderate carbonation. Nice, but not that hoppy, though I didn’t care about that.
