3.05/5 rDev -16%
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper amber with a smallish white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass some.
The aroma is sweet toasted caramel malts and green apple with a little resiny hop.
The flavor is sweet biscuity caramel malts with some fruity slightly resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.
Overall, a decent pale ale. A bit to toasty/biscuity for my tastes but with nice hops.

Pours a slightly hazy, watery brown with a frothy quarter inch cream head that lingers.
Muted citrus, resin, and toasted, nutty caramel malt form the aroma. There's a hint of chocolate.
Grapefruit pith and lemon underlie a strong, nutty malt backbone, becoming a touch resiny and bitter in the dry finish.
Body is moderate to a bit thin, with moderate carbonation and a fairly stringent finish.
Hops and malt are fairly well balanced. The astringent finish is somewhat offputting. I'm not a huge lemon fan, but the malt backbone is nice.

He’brew Dry Hopped Session Ale has a very thick, creamy, off-white head (it actually exploded out of the bottle), and a somewhat hazy, amber appearance, with lots of lacing and streaming bubbles. Aroma is of pine, citrus, bready malts, and water. Taste is really nice- bready malts, over-ripe fruit, hop bitterness, cracker, and water. Mouthfeel is medium and fluffy, and He’brew Genesis Dry Hopped Session Ale finishes fairly dry and very easy drinking. This is a winner, and I think you should try it!

Clear amberb but not sparkling clear. Smallish head but maintains.
The aroma to me was mostly malts, I didn't pick up any hops really.
Taste is sweet malts and very light hops.
I wasn't much impressed with this offering, perhaps it was old. I didn't look for any best buy date.

A. Caramel color with a solid white bubbly head and a good deal of lacing. It has an incredible amount of sediment. It looks gelatinous it is so thick. Some bubbles working their way through the middle.
S. Solid hoppy scent.
T. It has a caramel sweetness. A bit of floral undertone mixed with a grape flavor. Malty with some hoppy bite.
M. More smooth than a carbonated tingle, but a mix of both.
O. It's good and crisp, but is missing that great defining flavor. Everything is solid, if unmemorable.

The thin head on a dark straw colored body.
A rich aroma that favors the malt with a little pear and apple.
The taste is mildly fruity (apple and banana) with a touch of pine bitterness. It feels a little disjointed.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Nothing special but not bad.

Light brown and a little hazy, head and lace were pretty decent.
Aroma is nice. Reminds me kinda of their Coney Island Lager, truth be told. A good blend of hops and malts. There's a little citrus, some floral, some grasses and grains, and some nice hops. Also there's bread, biscuit, caramel, and toast. Maybe some toffee. Flavors mesh perfectly with the aroma, they're very complimentary. A well balanced beer.
Body is medium and pretty thick really for a moderate ABV beer.
Quite enjoyable, I'm quite happy that I have five of these left.

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass from a 12oz bottle.
Poursa very nice dark copper/light amber color with some orange edges. Nice off-white head forms to about 0.5 inch.
Grassy hopped back aroma with some nice sweet and bready malt notes. Nice earthy grain with some midl caramel notes. Has a slightly English ale aroma which is very nice and refreshing. Good sweet
Flavor starts off bready and malty with some nice caramel notes. This is then followed by some good grainy and earthy tones followed by some flowery and slightly grassy herbal hop notes. Very refreshing drinkable and dare I say session-able. The finish carries some of the sweet malt notes and a slight hopy character to a nice refreshing and light finish.
Very drinkable brew that actually has good flavors. Very nice

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a He'Brew shaker pint glass. From the 2012 Holiday gift pack.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy copper amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head that recede into a thin layer. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.
Smell: Aroma is a solid mix of hops and malts. Earthy hops with a little touch of pine and floral hops. Hints of citrus orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. Fairly grassy and musty. Solid presence of bready malts with hints of biscuit, caramel, toffee, toast, and cracker. Aroma is very balanced between the hops and malts. Its a solid smelling beer.
Taste: Like the smell indicates, a very solid taste that is balanced. Upfront is a hop taste that is moderately bitter. Notes of citrus orange, pineapple,lemon, and grapefruit. Grassy and floral hops with a little pine resin. The malts come in with a good taste of biscuit, yeast, sweet caramel, toffee, crackers, and toast. Good balance between the sweetness and bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, crisp, and fairly drying. Very smooth.
Overall: A pretty good take on an American Pale Ale. Well balanced and very tasty.
