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!

From bottle to some kind of glass. Pours a golden with white head. Aroma is mix of malt and hops. Mostly danky aroma, but some citrus in the background. Taste is lite, dry, danky, finishes dry. Pretty tasty beer.

Pours copper, slightly darker than style. White 1/2 inch head. Grassy citrus nose. Flavor is weird citrus almost alcohol citrus. Finish is real dry and lingering bitterness. Finishes well but begins weird. Those Hebrews are always good but different.

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours hazy orange/amber with a tall, sticky, off-white head. The aroma is light flowery citrus hops. The flavor is smoothly bitter that sits on a chewy malt foundation. Good but needs a little more crispness to suit me.

"Malty enough for a tridryhopped iPa for me to think this was less than fresh. Still a pretty nice iPa with a soft feel and citrus and floral hops along with a biscuity malt backbone and a little sweetness."

12 oz. bottle purchased at Julio’s Liquors. Orange/ amber color with lasting bubbles of head. Aroma start with sweet malt and turns into grapefruit, garlic and a strong note of pine resin.

The medium body is supported by a nice amount of malt to balance out the hop varieties. Floral hops followed by citrus, weak tropical fruit and a strong pine finish. Texture is dry and bitterness is lingering. Whoa, this is better than I expected and I’m sure would rock on draft.

Bottle at home. Pours an amber orange with a fluffy off white head. Lots of pine and lots of caramel on the nose. Flavor follows. Very malty beer with good hop bitterness. Medium to full bodied. Finishes clean. Very nice beer.

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.
