22oz bomber.

The beer pours a deep copper color, almost a red tinged brown. A finger of off-white foam recedes rapidly leaving a thick coaster. Sticky lacing clings to the sides of the glass. Smells of fruity hops and pale malt. Lots of citrus in the nose. Taste follows suit with flavors of fresh oranges, pineapple and mango up front. Citrus fruit gives way to mild bitterness and biscuity pale malt mid-palate. More orange qualities return in the finish and a bitter aftertaste lingers a bit. Feel is medium with a medium level of carbonation. Overall this is a very tasty and quite drinkable offering from Schmaltz. Picked this up on a whim and now glad I did. (666 characters)

Pours a hazy copper-golden with an egg shell/tan head. Head retention is better than average. A huge pine and tangy citrus bouquet, yielding to sweet barely malt. Mouthfeel is cottony and smooth, but complimented by mild carbonation. A beef and vegetable soup flavor occurs as a result of the interaction between the high alpha acid hops and the malt. This beer is interesting, but not very good. I'll drink it for $5.99 a bomber. (430 characters)

3.17/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

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. (786 characters)

3.15/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: cloudy orange color with a small, fine head on a cold pour.

S: piney, citrus, melon, and sweet malt.

T: doesn't follow the nose much. Lot of bitterness, less flavor than expected, and a bit of off flavor, too.

M: medium body with just enough pop in the carbonation

O: great up until I tasted it...then even the smell changed for me. Still, it's interesting and available. (381 characters)
