3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours copper-orange with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, caramel, sweet malt,s and light herbal hops. Taste i about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice IPA that is named after a mountain in my hometown that I have ran/hiked so many times.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper color with a small off-white head that has fair retention. The aroma is mild with roasted barley and pine. The taste showcases hops that are piney without being harshly bitter. The malts base is light caramel and roasted grains. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and just a tad sweet. Overall: I haven’t had a Manzanita brew in a few years and i gotta say that they have improved remarkably. They have gone from ambitious homebrewers to real professional brewers with a viable product. cheers guys.
