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.

5.6% is considered a session ale? I need to get off this planet. It’s a good beer, but please - session should not be mentioned in this bible book. Low rankings purely on the misleading name. Please. Call me an asshole.

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 (2319) - 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 (6437) - 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 (1181) - 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.

AirForceHops (3391) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 25, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Amber color with thin head. Aroma is caramel malt, mild floral and pine hops. The dry hopping is all about aromatics and it really didn’t help the flavor here in any way shape or form.

Really plain flavors, grain, caramel malt, medium bodied with a somewhat slick mouthfeel. No bitterness to speak of and overall just boring. No bottle date found on bottle but where I bought this; bottles really don’t sit around long on the shelf. But it tastes way older than I guessing it is. The neck label says it this brew won a silver medal. I only taste a swing and a miss here.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. I am not a big hops fan, I purchased this because I thought it was a Genesse product, lol. The beer has nice citrus aromas and I can smell the dry-hopping. The initial taste of bread, slight malts and can really taste the complexity of the hops. Was not a fan but the taste tickles my tounge.

slowrunner77 (6016) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2014
"Think i had this a bit past it’s prime, as the other reviews on here are older than mine, and this "hoppy" session brew had a rather weak, uninspired hop profile. Light citrus and bready malts, average across the board."

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a white head. Taste Carmel, sweet, lightly bitter. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into a pint glass. Light amber appearance. Aroma and flavor is old, musty, malty and sweet with mild hop bitterness (resin, pine). May have been on the shelf a while.
