A: Coppery-tea color with a good clarity shows a light visible touch of effervesce. Chalky white creamy head sits a finger high with a good show of retention and lace coverage.
S: Sweet sugary grapefruit and pine with some lime. Sweet fresh caramel with a bit of fresh underlying tones of tropical fruitiness pineapple-mango. Some fresh lemon rounds things out.
T: The flavor is freshly toasted caramel grains, a bit dry, that balances well against the sweet grapefruit and pine hops that are fresh. Sweet underlying notes of tropical fruitiness, again pineapple-mangos while the citra provides a fresh and fruity lemon lime character. Upon warming some noticeable traces of oaky alcohol.
M: Some tightness upfront, creamy medium bodied malt base with a fruity and citrus leave off the tongue.
O: Fresh and fruity upfront and finishes out with a nice hop bitterness and dry toasted palate. Good hop complexity especially with the amount of hops utilized is not always easy to get a smooth flow of flavor. This is nicely harmonic with no hop clash, smooth and rounded hop flavors blend well together balanced nicely with a dry toasted munich and specialty grain background. The more you drink the more you appreciate the smooth and rounded hop character bitterness.

He’brew Hop Manna IPA has a very thick, fluffy, cream-colored head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance. Lots of heavy lacing is left behind. The aroma is of pine cone, flower stem, sweet bread, and turnips. Taste is of pine resin, sweet bread, syrup, malt, and a slight sourness. Mouthfeel is mostly medium, and He’brew Hop Manna finishes dry, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is excellent.

I had a sixteen ounce draft of this at the Amsterdam Ale House on Manhattan's Upper West Side. I've had so many styles from Schmaltz and Coney Island, including an excellent double ipa, but I've never had an ipa from them. This one was good but not outstanding.
Color was a light copper, not a lot of carbonation but it also didn't disapate very fast. Some lacing and a bit cloudy.
Aroma was piney, some citrus but more along the lines of an east coast ipa than west coast.
Flavor was also of the pine hoppiness with some east coast sweetness and a bit maltier than I like.
Overall a pretty good beer that I'll get again. Just not my favorite.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, a nice pine to small citrus hop. In the taste, citrus to a sweeter pine like hops. A small hop bite, but mainly smooth and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a faintly dry citrus hop in the aftertaste. Nice hops, a bit faint and a bit watery, but nice nonetheless.
