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.

TEJA (1294) - 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.

Beaver (1292) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper amber with a smallish white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet toasted caramel malts and green apple with a little resiny hop.

The flavor is sweet biscuity caramel malts with some fruity slightly resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.

Overall, a decent pale ale. A bit to toasty/biscuity for my tastes but with nice hops.

AWISLguy (1290) - 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.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - MAR 10, 2013
It has the body of a lager. Rich caramel with bitter hops. Being dry hopped it is very flowery with a pollen nose. A bit of honey. Organic taste. pretty good. Dark amber color. 2.99 a 6-pack at Sprouts bargin bin. Snagged a couple other sixers at the same price.

JDBaker11058 (1269) - Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Appearance: medium amber brown, with a bit of muddy orange highlights, a short, slightly creamy tan head. Aroma: some grassy, lemony hops over a graham cracker malt base. Taste: as the aroma indicated. Finish: a little watery, but balanced. Notes: Decent enough, but not much to this beer at all.

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.

ronaldtheriot (1247) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - FEB 18, 2012
He’brew Dry Hopped Session Ale has a very thick, creamy, off-white head (it actually exploded out of the bottle), and a somewhat hazy, amber appearance, with lots of lacing and streaming bubbles. Aroma is of pine, citrus, bready malts, and water. Taste is really nice- bready malts, over-ripe fruit, hop bitterness, cracker, and water. Mouthfeel is medium and fluffy, and He’brew Genesis Dry Hopped Session Ale finishes fairly dry and very easy drinking. This is a winner, and I think you should try it! RJT

Transfer from BA review on 11-2-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a deep-amber/copper colored brew with a big white head. The head is billowy and fades over a few minutes to leave some decent lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The smell is largest of a strong bready aroma. Mixed with this aroma are some aromas of a grapefruit hop as well as a lighter pine smell. Rather nice. Taste – The taste starts with a bready flavor mixed with a light caramel sweetness and some grapefruit hop. The grapefruit grows stronger and is accompanied by some more floral hop tastes. As these come to light, the sweetness begins to fade. As the taste advances more toward the end, a pine taste then comes to the tongue. In the end a slightly bitter and bready flavor are left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the average side in its thickness with a carbonation level that is rather low. The body is decent for the flavors and the session style of the brew, but a higher level of carbonation would have made it more “session” like. Overall – A pretty tasty brew. It had a good hop taste profile with a decent balance of the taste, as there was a lighter sweetness and some bready flavors mixed with the hop.

Fatehunter (1213) - 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.
