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.

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Not quite sure where I got it. Pours a clear amber color with a thin creamy off-white head. Decent head retention. Citrus hop aroma with caramel malts. The taste is bitter citrus hops and caramel malts. Medium bodied, refreshing, moderate lingering bitterness, high carbonation. Straightforward and very drinkable.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
355mL. Pours a clearish, deep toffee amber. Larger, rocky, buttermilk foam. Excellent retention and webby, loose lacing. Nose is vanilla, stale candies, old caramel/Halloween candies, something like pickles (?). Just old, past prime smelling. Taste is stale lemon drops, lemon soap, lemon acid, very harsh acidity and acrid, astringent bitterness. Lemon tea throughout and big tannic, palate destroying puckering from the lemon bitterness. Ick.

3fourths (7979) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2012
bottle. stiff and rough caramel malt and browned apple nose, two things I absolutely can’t stand in beer. I’m perplexed that they call this 5.6% a session ale, which I wouldn’t have guessed, and that it’s been dry-hopped - also would not have guessed. it’s more of a run of the mill amber ale with stewed oatmeal and barley and red apple skins and crunchy bran cereal. cracklin’ oat bran amber ale. funny enough it smells and tastes like a lot of Mikkeller beers.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden to light amber hued body with a small white head that lasts with some lace. Aromas are bready, malty, biscuity and lightly grassy. A touch of grapefruit and citrus. Flavors are medium citrusy, orange, tangerine and grassy hops. Some bready and toasty malt with low caramel. Lively bubbles, somewhat dry finish. Not bad.

DocLock (7832) - 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.
