look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.5

Picked this up at my local HEB to try something new. On first taste the beer was your average IPA, upon further consumption the beer was very dry. I poured into a proper glass to see the color and get the aroma.... The color was average but the smell was disturbing. Would not buy again. Too many others to try.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 22oz. Bomber into a Snifter (I know, I know, not appropriate glasswear, but I just bought it and wanted to use it)

A) Pours an amazing, striking copper/orange. Hazy to say the least with a good amount of bubbles dancing inside. About a quarter inch of pale white head blanket the surface. A mesmerizing looking brew.

S) A lot going on in the nose, but not one dominating scent. Some resinous dankness tie in with some bitterness. A lot of citrus notes, mostly pineapple and lemon, along with some grapefruit.

T) Taste a lot of what I got in the nose, citrus and some bitter hoppiness. Maltiness becomes more pronounced as the brew warms to near room temperature.

M) Pretty smooth and drinkable with a fair amount of carbonation.

O) The appearance of Hop Manna is one of the best looking I have seen in an IPA. However, the rest of the experience was a little less flattering. Not saying there were poor qualities to the brew (many were better than average), just nothing that really blew me away. All in all, a very drinkable IPA and a solid example of the style.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours cloudy orange yellow with a nice fluffy head. Smells of flowers and citrus very inviting but not too overpowering. Tastes of sweet citrus hops with a bit of earthiness. Beer is light bodied with lower carbonation but a good bite. Overall a very good beer.

bomber into a snifter.

pours a dark golden brown color with a finger thick white head. smell is quite malty...maybe old? taste is a bit hoppy and malty... ehh.. real average. not sure the freshness of this one but it could be as intended. grapefruit notes. its alright. mouthfeel is not what i like, just too malty for me. body is medium as well as carbonation.

overall just okay.
