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.

Foam gushed out of the 22 oz bomber upon opening. Deep amber orange with soapy khaki head that was two fingers,nice lacing.Aggresive carbonation.

Sweet malt,faint whiff of hops,plain and simple.

Taste=nose. This is a malt bomb, English style sweet malt.

Mouthfeel is medium,prickly carbonation,sweet aftertaste is overbearing,nowhere near enough hop bitterness to counter.

Overall,meh.

old review from notes. accidently reviewed this test batch under the actual brew at first.

Red-orange color with a great, creamy off-white head. Smell is delicious hops of all types, earthy, citrus, pine all represented. Great bubbly but full mouthfeel, but the taste is a little lacking. It's almost all earthy bitter, with a little roasted malt background. Kinda one-dimensional.

Glad I tried it, but probably won't get it again.
