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!

commonmac (585) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle purchased at Elevated on S. Mpls. Consumed in pint glass. Golden orange with minor off white, maybe tan head. Huge aroma of hops and pine. Leads into a hop forward IPA with some caramel malt balance. Slight pine and floral. Aftertaste is resiny and slightly bitter. Coats the mouth with an oily presence. Easy to drink and enjoyable although not as unique as expected.

PhillyBeer2112 (2610) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2015
Nice enough IPA. Clean sweetish caramel malts but not too much, bright fresh citrus and floral hops, good balance, semi-dry at the finish, almost creamy mouthfeel.

Very nice beer. Good copper color and fruitful head. Hop palate is not wrecking but enough to know what you have. Decent alcohol carries.

radio_nowhere (1043) - Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2015
Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, golden amber color with white head. Aroma notes of tropical fruity citrus/piney hops and caramel malt. Taste adds bitter grapefruit, resin, citrus zest, some dankness and herbal notes. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, oily, dry with lingering grapefruity/pine hop bitterness. Wonderfully complex IPA.

Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy Amber with off-white head. Nose is bread and citrus. Slightly bitter, maybe some grapefruit to taste. Usually not much of a hophead, but I do like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
