Pours dark amber, almost red with a finger width foamy head, which persists through drinking. There is a good deal amount of lacing on the side of the glass. The smell is not really all that overpowering. Can determine citrus, slightly grassy smell. You get a malty taste up front, quickly followed by a moderate hoppy taste with a stronger malt at the end. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, almost soapy. Not a bad beer, but I have definitely had stronger and better pale ales. Would drink it again, but there are others I would chose first.

Nutty brown body with a mostly white head and lace that clings to the glass like crazy. Some visible floaters in this one...

Smells a little spicy, sweet, and citrusy, with a little funk.

Not a lot of flavor, a little bitter, a little too watery. A little funk, I think this one might be beyond it's date.

... I don't know about this one...

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Dark caramel.

Aroma: Woody (more like bark)

Taste: Dank and too bitter for the amount of
malt used. Unbalanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light in body with little carbonation. Too much sediment.

Final Thoughts: This beer might be He'Brew's poorest offering. Mr Cowan should develop a solid core of good beers (ie RIPA on Rye) and avoid so much "marketing shtick"...enough already.

Super clean complexion in this ale it had a light amber hue and a thin trace of a wispy off white head.

The aromas are in line with the style with a soft earth tone, floral hop cone, herbal tones, lemon and a supporting caramel malt.

The flavors couldn't line up more with the nose as the earth, floral and herbal hops are gentle on the tongue. Light tea leave malt support the overall hop presence.

The feel is very light easy and sessionable, as the brewer was attempting I suppose.

This is nothing special or worth blogging about but it is exactly like described....sessionable.

With a glimpse of IPA but with the body of Pale- it seems that the landscape of Session Ale is being revamped before our very palate. Shmaltz Brewing is leading the way with a hybrid taste that's as comfortable as it is curious.

Its semi-bright light honey-amber appearance springs to life with a dance of carbonation that lifts a frothy and airy head toward the rim. Genesis Dry-Hopped retains its foamy ivory column with a ton of confidence while leaving broken lace behind; easily mistaken for IPA, at least to the eye.

Bountiful aromas of hops leap out immediately. Its vivid citrus character is alive with ripe grapefruit, freshly zested oranges, a pep of pine cone and spruce, and a playful grassy notion. Its tepid malt underpinnings give just enough of a honey and thin caramel to suggest that the citrus is juicy and plump with sweetness.

Conversely, its that soft malt sweetness that greets the early palate with that same honey and caramel but with a crisp wafer-thin taste to suggest graham crackers. But all that's short-lived as the balance quickly shifts to hops across the middle. Pink grapefruit and orange peel offer a tangy fruit taste with playful acidity before turning decidedly bitter to finish. Its light resinous character seems of pine and fresh-cut grass.

Light in body, the beer goes from a snappy sweet bit to full-out dryness in a hurry. Its vast carbonation lifts the malt with ease in order to usher in a dry malt substrate with echoes of citrus in its quick and clean finish.

Its masterful taste is inquisitive enough to ponder and explore, but is effortless in drinkability to facilitate great company, food or entertainment without undue attention. I could session the hell out of Genesis... until I fall over.
