COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Milwaukee Genius Series 1: Made with three styles of fresh American hops and fruity ale yeast that requires greater fermentation, it finishes with a dark amber appearance, spicy hop flavor and bold, malty backbone. The punch this potent brew packs reminds us all that when you want to make a point, you’re better off making a statement.

Picked this 22 oz. at Greens Buford Highway. Nice dark brown slightly ruby in color. Nice off-white tan head. Looks like a good beer. Has a nice hop aroma. Slight malt aroma. Beer has average texture. Bitter, but not very malty. Has a nice hop flavor, but there could always be more.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Dark mahogany color with a medium off-white head leaving some lacing behind. Big hopped up nose, spicy and citrusy hops, lots of sweetness to it. Flavor has underlying chocolate, soft of chocolate covered cherry note to the finish. Caramel and citrus from the hops make a nice blend. Finish is bitter, maybe a touch to much, but still the malt sweetness cut through a bit keeping it from being to sharp of a bitterness.

Cybercat (3506) - Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Aroma is strong and rather hoppy, but not fiercely so, with a subtle fruity undertone. It pours a clear dark coppery amber with a fairly thick, slightly yellow beige head. Flavor is hoppy but not too bitter, and has a firm undertone of orange. Texture is thick, smooth and fizzy, leaving a hop-bitter aftertaste.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2009 Pours a clear dark brown with a dense, creamy tan head. Leaves a good lacing. Strong piney aroma balanced by caramel. There’s also a lot of alcohol in the nose. Flavor has a lot of coniferous hops, caramel, cream soda. But overall, the bitterness is too soapy for my taste. Thick bodied with a lovely hop burn.

HonkeyBra (3528) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Crushed with CaryTheDude after JakeBra mysteriously disappeared. Big deep red color with a sticky, off white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Taste is pretty excellent. Fruity, hoppy, great. Mouthfeel is nice and thick. Finish is long and sweet, a bit bitter. Great beer.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2009
22oz bottle. Poured a deeper and clear copper color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, caramel, some floral hoppiness, and just a tad fruity. Tastes of caramel, citrus, some spicy hops, and some fruitiness. The body was a little on the thinner side. Lacing left on the glass.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Amber-red color, medium-thick soapy white head. Light earthy hop aroma plus a significant vegetal character. Taste is real earthy, vegetal, and an odd mix of sweetness and hops on the finish. Weird.

nearbeer (3845) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 12, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2009 Thanks to General Gao for this 22 oz, bottled June 08. Murky, darkish red-copper. Small, creamy and lasting head deposits frosting on the glass. Aroma is a nice blend of resin, grapefruit, caramel, cocoa and orange. Flavor is similar but more earthy-spicy with notes of lemon juice, peppery ginger, eucalyptus and oak. Maybe a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. Medium-heavy body is mostly smooth, and spicy-tingly with a dry finish.
