Pours a beautifull, clear, golden amber. A creamy eggshell head rests on top with a bubbly texture around the sides of the glass. Bubbles rise up from below and nice lacing is left.
Slightly subdued, but pleasant toasty malt and hop aroma.
Quite the formidable IPA. A great balance between toasty sweet malt and hops that also have a sweet citrussy edge to them. A touch of pine also in the hop profile. A pleasant bitterness increases. Toast shows more backbone as the beer warms.
Medium bodied and well carbonated. Crisp & Clean!
Quite a nice beer overall. I love trying the manyu offerings that one of my favorite all time styles has to offer... wish this one was more accessible.
Thanks to far333 for this one. It's a nice treat.

This is the featuted draft at Manny Browns in Langhorne PA. The color is a golden hue a lot like most In its style. The smell is very faint and inoffensive This is a very good IPA. Well balanced hops. Nothing too flashy as well so I can't way it is world class, but very solid.

A - Murky gold with one finger of soapy off white head, a little spotty lacing
S - Caramel malt, orange juice an big grapefruit, some pine,
T - There is such a huge toasted nutty malt flavor to this its shocking. Some mild pine and grapefruit juice come through, its mildly hoppy.
M - Bitter a little soapy and chewy.
O - This should for sure be classified as an English IPA, the toasted nutty malt taste makes it feel like a brown ale, but its mildly hoppy. Nothing extravagant.
