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.

AWISLguy (1594) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle from ck1 - thanks bro! Pours a copper color with fine bubbles and a rapidly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is of dark fruits, sweet caramel, anise and some tangy,earthy spices. Taste has super sweet fruits, candied sugar, caramel, bread, grapes and some straw. Finishes sweet and grapey with some length, giving it a champagne-type end. Not a big fan.

andyhwcinc (1588) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2012
Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a cool early spring Tuesday afternoon. Appearance a cloudy amber with a rich off white head that rims around the glass. Aroma mostly of caramel / bready malt, not really getting many hops. Taste is also more malty than hoppy, more of an amber ale than a pale ale. It’s OK.

Bottle - small foamy head, medium amber/orange color, earthy hop aroma and flavor, with a good size sweet malt backbone

strongpieman (1572) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle. Deep amber color, a little cloudy, thin off white head. Sweet malty taste, almost a little syrupy. Overall good though.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bright amber brew with a bit of white head. Nose of earth and grassy hops, some caramel as well. Flavors of bread and citrus with some spices.

Beerenberger (1555) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013
The nose is caramel balanced with grass and citrus. Nice. Pours a clear dark amber with an off-white ring and minor lacing. The flavor, initially, is slightly sweet followed by a grassy/citrus finish. Balanced. A somewhat bitter aftertaste is also present. Medium-light body and moderate but crisp carbonation. Overall, I can see why this could be a session beer, but one will do it for me for now.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2012
Dark orange color, a little cloudy, some head that lingers nicely. Caramel malt aroma with a little citrus and grass from the hops. Taste is alright. Malt and bitterness balance pretty well. Not enough hops though. Mouthfeel and carbonation are good though. An ok session ale.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2012
A self-proclaimed cross between a West Coast pale and an amber ale, huh? It looks the part with a color that’s right between the two styles, all beneath a small, but firm and fine off-white head. It has a really great aroma, bold and hoppy for an amber with a hint of breadiness and sweetness that’s more West Coast than what you’d experience in your everyday amber. Delicious! It’s smooth and slightly creamy in the mouth with a thickness that normally would make for an odd beer of this low of maltiness, but their use of grains and hops really makes this beer work. The finish is easy, with no residual sweetness or hoppiness. It’s here that you can tell that the dry-hopping was so important. It filled the gaps in what could have been an otherwise slightly average beer, while not forcing you to take a snap of bitterness in the throat: something that would have been completely inappropriate for this style. Although Genesis doesn’t get too many kudos among other reviewers, I think this is a fantastic beer, and much better than I expected.

TEJA (1520) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle from Citybeer , SF, CA. Huge hoppy arom but also thuwey caramell. The taste is well balanced with both malt and hop taste, some sweetness but just to balance everything else.

Fatehunter (1518) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 18, 2013
The thin head on a dark straw colored body. A rich aroma that favors the malt with a little pear and apple. The taste is mildly fruity (apple and banana) with a touch of pine bitterness. It feels a little disjointed. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Nothing special but not bad.
