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.

Burnt orange and hazy. Light tropical hop aromatics, slightly bready. Flavors are thin malt and watered down hops, surprising considering how dark it is. Finishes slightly bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Look: pours a cloudy orange. White pillowy head. Smell: dish soap. Citrus. Grapefruit pith. Orange. Taste:tangerine. Grapefruit. Very bitter. Feel: very dry. Leaves a thick film in the mouth. Overall: ok beer. Need more malt. A little overly hoppy for a session beer. Just don't like the type of bitterness. First drank: home 12/2/14

probstblueribbon (3067) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear light amber with a full, rocky, light tan head. Aroma: Smells infected...tangy, peppery herbal hops, quite lemony, moderate biscuit maltiness, has potential in an uninfected form. Palate: Medium body, with full, rounded carbonation...probably too much carbonation. Flav.: Bitter herbs (infection) with pretty big citrus notes, limited malt support, peppery; dry with fair bitterness and a lightly infected, citrus and herbal finish.

I expected better from these guys.

Mep3222 (578) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Malty aroma, almost has a bit of a burnt malt aroma to it. Taste is malty, roasted malt. Palate seems slightly watery for how malty it seems. Good beer, but nothing special based on the other shmaltz beers I have had, but a solid all around beer for the masses. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got this in the bottle from Woks and Lox event in NYC. It was one of the first beers that I enjoyed throughout and made my digestive system actually enhanced from it. I love He'Brew for this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 3, 2014
12oz bottle - Definitely a session with little in terms of both hops and malt. A bit too astringent for my liking, like instead of hops they added aspirin. I didn’t find much appealing about this beer to WANT to drink several of these. I barely wanted to finish my bottle.

downender (6525) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle at Ale Mary, Baltimore, September 2014. Amber in colour with, a decent, off-white, head. Some citrus hops, sweet tangerine fruit, crisp malts and a moderately bitter finish. Fine.

tennisjoel (1182) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Attractive pour. Copper body with a long lasting large bubbly off white head. Floral hops very aromatic. Almost brett type flavors. Dry finish. Some subtle nut malt in the background. Quite a nice session ale.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, floral, grass, pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of citrus hops and dark/bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice amber ale. All around good complexity and balance of citrus hops and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
