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.

stangger (593) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Very light-bodied; citrus, grapefruit. Slightly bitter. Cascade comes through strong. Definitely a session ale.

Beerdedone (2828) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours amber with a small off-white head. Aroma was bready with caramel, citrus and pine. Flavor of pine, bread, citrus, grapefruit, caramel and had some fruitiness.

degbert (1268) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a high, pillowy, lacy, off-white head. Nose is tangerine, red grapefruit, and honestly not much else. Some hops up front, followed by mild citrusy sweetness. Carbonation is low. Finish is, again, mild with a little hops and an interesting fresh strawberry note. There’s just not a lot to this beer -- I kept wanting a volume control so I could turn it up.

DrunkSanta410 (414) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Pours Clear copper color with long lasting white head. Aroma is grainy, a bit of roast malts, a bit of a macro feel to it. I don’t get much hop aroma. Taste is caramel malts, grain, faint floral hops. Slight bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not a bad beer, but really doesn’t stand out. I wouldn’t seek this out.

2.3
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
Butters (3915) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Clear dull amber with minimal ring of offwhite head. uninspiring and dull faded earthy hops. Matly sweet, but with apple fruitiness. Maybe a fresh bottle would be a different story, but this one was pretty much old hop cracker and caramel. bleh.

MarkoR (612) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
355 ml bottle. Tasted while in NYC. Pours a golden colour with thin head. Aroma is roasted malts. Not one of the best Session, but still decent.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Leighton (13021) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours deep gold with a frothy, off-white head the aroma holds dried pale malts, biscuits, pithy citrus and a bit of orange rind. Light to medium sweet flavor with moderate bitterness, slight grass, pine needles, dry pale bread, so e lemon and tangerine pith light rind. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Decent balance to finish, more of the same character-wise. Nothing wrong here.

Christpuncher (1634) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2014
a decent session pale ale. very malty and hoppy start with a malty and bitter finish. smells malty with some pine notes. pours copper in color with a thick tan head. had a 12oz bottle pour at home.

FestDecBeet (358) - - DEC 2, 2014
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 (3179) - 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.
