I have been trying to make converts out of other craft beer lovers - see the way of the Shmaltz. May the Shmaltz be with you.

Manna is pretty sweet. It looks like a slightly darker AIPA. It has a skunky, over the top aroma too. I am sure that it has not been handled too carefully. At Saveon it was sitting unrefridgerated.

The taste is full bodied and skunky. It's malty enough to keep up with the tremendous manna, I mean hops.

The aftertaste is pretty boozy considering. I am a shmalt fan soI love this. I really love their even bigger ones. May the schmaltz be with you.

A: yellow-orange with ample lacing on the glass.

S: floral burst and pine

T: massive hops. Very piney with notes of apple, grapefruit, and pineapple. It's got a fairly big malt bill that brings nuts, caramel, and graham cracker.

M: very thick for a low ABV IPA. Hop oils all over.

O: glad I tried something new. Hop Manna is an above average beer.

No bottled on date visible, purchased a week ago.

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Tree House tulip pint.

a; Clear amber with an inch tall white head which receded to thin surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Moderate citrus and pine.

t: Piney hop bite forward with some strength over a medium bready malt base. Bitterness lingers a bit, then dissipates nicely.

m: Medium with good body. Considerable carbonation tingle.

o: An above average IPA bordering on DIPA hop presence (all 65 IBUs are evident). A decent buy at $6 per 22, refreshing and pleasing to this hop lover.
