Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy honey color, leaving a thin white head that stays around a while, no lacing though. Smell is nice, citrus and pine hope aromas as well as some caramel notes. Taste is good, starts a little sweet and finishes with a nice lingering bitterness. Taste definitely has a lot of citrus character as well as pine and earth notes. Medium carbonation and body, mouthfeel is slightly resin like. Overall a fine example of an IPA, hard to knock it down for much and even harder to compare since there are so many differences within the style. But it is a very good, easily drinkable IPA, will definitely remember it for the future.

Poured into a chilled pint glass
A - dark copper with an off white head- awesome lacing left throughout.
S - not too much hops off the nose just a lot of Carmel.
T- pretty malty and sweet with an undertone of pine like hops. Usually not a fan of the hoppy AND malty type beers but this ones actually balanced incredibly well. Starts with sweet Carmel malts that go through out and at the end you get a small hop presence that's silenced with more sweet malts.
M - somewhat creamy, decently carbonated.
Overall, the flavor isn't awesome on this beer per say- but it's the perfect balance that makes this beer so drinkable. I will say with a name like Hop Manna , do NOT expect a hop bomb because this beer is far from it. Anyway, not my preferred ipa type but I'd drink it again.
