Pretty good stuff. Served at a good temperature with a thick, foamy, cream colored head that lasts and lots of lace. Color is clear amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is hop, grapefruit, resin, malt. Flavor's like nose, balanced, bitter, dry. Body is full, soft, with mild carbonation; perhaps a touch too mild. Finish is like flavor, quite long, and satisfying. Could drink another of these.

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.

Poured from a short "bomber" bottle into a dimpled English "pot" pint glass.
Deep gold in color,with a two-inch head of off-white foam.
Aroma-a fragrant boquet of citrussy hops
Taste-Big dose of woodsy, piney, citrussy hops combined with a slippery little malt profile that provides just the right amount of balance to counter the onrushing waves of hops. A "can't miss" for hop-heads.

On draft at Churchkey:

Pours a light brown color w/ a one finger cocoa head. Decent lacing on the side of my snifter. The nose is pine, grass, tangerine, lemon, and grapefruit. A very nice smelling IPA. The taste follows the nose, with malt really coming out front. Feel is very smooth.... almost too smooth. The malt outdoes the hops in feel and finish. Overall, a very good IPA- I would have this again.

I had this on tap over at Churchkey.

A: Poured a solid gold color, with a translucence that was clear as a bell! The head was quite sudsy and was about 2 fingers thick.

S: Floral as hell, and with a huge hop profile that was a dead ringer for SN Celebration Ale. The Centennial, Cascade, and Citra came together in an orgasmic way.

T: Not as assertive as the nose, but the citrus component was definitely there, along with a fantastic fruit component. Additionally, I got a bit of "Wonder Bread" in there. Everybody loves that stuff, right?

M: The linger was not as much from the bitter hops, but from the fruit.... sort of a divine cherry-like flair. The lacing looked like dried marshmallow creme.

O: The sum up: This had a West Coast smell, with a balanced East Coast taste with fresh fruit in a 2-way tie with the hops. Me likey!
