3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a copper/bronze colored body, half finger white foamy head slowly dies within a half minute, nice sticky spider web lacing clings tightly to the pint glass. The aroma has the pine/citrus hops up front, slight maltiness comes forward as the beer warms. The taste is bittersweet just as an AIPA should be, pine/citrus hops begin bitter and gradually allow the malts to intricate themselves within the flavoring, nice bitter piney aftertaste; dry sticky finish. On the palate, its about a light to medium, fairly sessionable, carbonation is spot on for the style and for me as the sharpness is there but there is an aspect of smoothness that is more than enjoyable, big wow from me. Overall, AIPA - outa the park Schmaltz, holey moley, I can’t believe I had to move to Alaska to find this, I most certainly would have this again

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Excellent IPA! The Hop Manna pours a very light copper color with a cloudy, orange hue. The head is white, thick and leaves a sticky, cascading lace around the inside of my glass. The nose is extremely inviting and just-about perfect for an IPA. I sense plenty of hops, orange, caramel malt, toasted bread and yeast. The flavors certainly do not disappoint. There are plenty of flowery, sticky and complex hops, brining some hints of grapefruit, orange, lemon, toasted bread and some yeast. The beer finishes bitter, dry, hoppy and with a big twang of yeast and roasted malts.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly muted nose of pine and citrus. Taste moves quickly from citrus to bitterness - a sustained hoppy finish. Seems slightly over carbonated, but otherwise very good.

Poured 22 ounce bottle into a tall .5 liter glass. Poured a cloudy deep copper color, with thick frothy head. Presented a great hop flower and noticeable aroma. The flavor is of a citrus and toasted grains. Large hoppy flavor, but not over the top. A great mouth full of IPA from beginning to end. Bravo!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells hoppy, coppery, a bit malty. Lots of head, but dissipates quickly. Thin body. Nice amber color. Very sweet and floral at first then surprisingly bitter finish. Decent IPA but nothing terribly exciting.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear orange with thick white head. A very malty aroma with some citrus. Taste is stronger with more malt than hops, as well as a lot of caramel, but still ends with a bitter hop aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin head of medium sized bubbles with excellent carbonation. Hoppy aroma with lots of earthy and fall aromas. Decaying leaves, dried flowers, a bit of pine, roasted grains and some vegetal aromas. Color is a cloudy dark orange. Lively mouthfeel with lots of effervescence. Lots of hoppy bitterness. Some grapefruit, mild malts, pine sap, roasted grains and some herbal flavors. Again earthy like the aroma. Bit of a chalky and pasty palate. Finishes bitter and dry. A decent IPA.

Bottle. Pours a murky brown with a light brown medium head. Aroma is hard to place but is slightly "rotten". However the taste has a very floral front with a nice is finish.
