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!

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.

From 12/17/11. Had on tap at Rustico in Ballston, VA. Served in a pint glass. I believe the menu said the ABV was 6.2 or 6.5% ABV.

a - Pours a transparent medium orange color with a slight reddish tint, one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, pine hops, and fruity malts. Lots of fresh hops, with citrus and grapefruit jumping out the most. Pretty nice.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, grapefruit, pine hops, fruity malts, bready malts, and roasted malts. More
hops than the nose, a slight step up.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

o - Overall a pretty good IPA. Looking at their other Hop Manna reviews looks like this one might be better than the others. Lots of hops, especially in the taste, and not a lot of bitterness. Would have it again.
