COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the book of Exodus, the ancient Hebrews survived 400 years of bondage before the ultimate supreme court dropped the 10 deadly Plagues on the land of the taskmasters and the head dictator, Pharaoh. Even then, only begrudgingly, did he Let My People Go. The freedom ride across, nay through the sea left a band of wandering nomads broke and suffering, no doubt with a profound hunger – and a mighty thirst. Enter the Manna: a glorious gift to nourish body and soul. Manna was said to combine the tastes of everything most delicious to each individual, depending on their desire. And as the Good Book says, Each shall gather according to one’s need and shall enjoy a double portion for thine chosen day of rest. Manna fed the entire tribe, but tradition suggests the righteous received manna ground in a heavenly mill, while the wicked had to grind it below for themselves. Hear o’ Tribe of Shmaltz – Behold: A celebration of the flower of the craft beer revolution! A golden opportunity to feed your inner hop head and rejoice in HOP MANNA, our newest delicacy of the modern He’brew Beer family. L’Chaim! Dry Hopped with Centennial, Cascade and Citra (Centennial and Cascade in Batch 4).

From the Shmaltz Brewing Company, this is the He’Brew Hop Manna IPA. Limited release in 22oz bottles, I was fairly excited to try this little guy. The label states that Hop Manna is dry hopped with Centennial Cascade and Citra hops, checking in at 65 IBUs and 6.8% abv. The Hop Manna pours a great straw-golden color, with quite a bit of fluffy off-white foam. There is a ton of carbonation rising from the bottom of my Unibroue-brand tulip glass. As usual, there’s a long story on the side of the label in tiny print that I don’t dare try to read after I start drinking. The nose is full of brightly floral hops, bitter at the core, but mostly floral and citrusy in nature. On the palate, this is much more subtle than some of the other IPAs I’ve been trying lately. The hops are definitely present, but not nearly as rough and bitter as others. The alcohol isn’t even noticeable, it’s seamlessly blended in behind the hops. The finish is not super-long lasting, but it does linger for a few minutes. Soft, smooth, flavorful, and quite drinkable. I like the Hop Manna!

Bomber from Hy-Vee (yay to Iowa now getting new beers!). Big beer with lots of malt followed by an incredibly dry bitter finish. Yes, it’s manna to a hop lover.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. I think the commercial description is tedious and hoes a long road to get to their point. That being said if it was 7%+ I would be giving it a higher score. Foamy, delicious, and cloudy red, three of my favorite characteristics in beer.

vandc01 (74) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Poured from a bomber with no date. Aroma - Orangey with some piney. Slight pineapple Appearance - Golden color with lots of bubbles . Creamy head that seems to stick around. Taste - The taste follows the aroma very well. Not as orangey as I was thinking. Not bad. Palate - Nice oily sticky after taste. Overall - Pretty good beer. Glad I grabbed and would have again.

MunBro (354) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Mid amber-yellow pour into a Spigleau IPA glass. One finger head that left no lacing. Funky aroma and taste. Some herbs, spices, hops, malts, and possibly something hibiscus-ey in the palate. Not bad. I prefer IPAs with more citrus notes than this, though. The malt flavour is definitely dominant.

Chudwick (2144) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - AUG 18, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 rerate: I kept the other half of the bomber and put a stopper on it. I just drank the rest and enjoyed it way more than last night. adjusting rating to reflect the positive experience. less cheese and more paint thinner but far more drinkable.

Expectation: I bought it for the ratings it got. We’ll see.
Hardware: bomber from the past into La Petite Tulipe
Nose: cheese, citrus and more cheese.
Sip: why? for science! Alpha nonsense going on. If I focus on that it’s not that bad. grapefruit.
Taste: bitter indeed
Conclusion: muddled mess. The other half of this bomber will surely go to waste. got boozy in the end. not finishing my glass and going to read instead. Goodnight - 5/4/8/3/9 or 2.9 on 8/18/2014 7:48:37 PM

Bottle consumed at Cropredy ’Fairports Annual Reunion’ Festival, Cropredy, Oxon, Friday 8th August 2014 Pours orange amber, its quite hazy. The maltiness (crystal) is quite prominent, but the hops are quite pushy also, its just a little sweet. Soft in mouth, a little juicy with a bit of fruity caramel. Good. A6 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.4
