Manayunk Ficus Carica
Pours clear red-brown with a 1-finger off-white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma of green apple with a sweet note from the figs. Some yeast funk too. Medium body, a touch oily. Dry finish. Tart flavor, similar to green apple, with some lactic sourness. A bit of a stone fruit note as it warms.

Manayunk Hoptastic Voyage
Draft at Fado. Hazy orange gold pour with a cover of off-white foam. Bitter orange zest flavors. Complex hop flavors. Still feels a bit harsh. Hints of mango and green banana peel. Needs some work.

Manayunk Hoptastic Voyage
Pours burnt orange with a half finger white head which fades to just a little lacing. Aroma is of zesty citrus, tropical fruits, grassy hops, bready malts, light sweet malts and melon. Taste is a bit more robust with a lot of citrus zest, citrus peels, and some melon notes. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi-moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice, easy drinking, sessionable IPA.

Manayunk Upshitz Kriek
Aroma - has an abundant mix of raw ripe black cherry and sweet cherry. There is a nice sour element as well. Appearance - the body is ruby red, and the head is pink-white head that crashes quickly. Taste - the taste is a decadent mix of rich black cherry - straight forward and sexy. There is a slight mix of sour, but not much. Palate - the body is medium, the texture is slick and sticky, carbonation is lively, and the finish sweet and only a touch sour.

I poured it from the can into a pint glass. It pours golden with a small, white head. The aroma is sour fruit and wheat. The taste is sour apples, lemon, and wheat. It’s crisp, easy-drinking, and very refreshing. I like how sour it is. This is a good summer session beer.

Manayunk Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Porter
Pours from can very dark brown, effectively black, with medium tan head. Nose is peanuts, toast, grass. Palate adds a subtle chocolate support, so this is one beer whose taste actually matches the description. Medium body, limited carbonation, a solid porter underneath The downside to the chocolate is a harsh finish, but it’s till worth a try.

Can from Capone’s. Poured turbid copper with off-white head. Nose was wet hops, tropical fruit. Tasted resiny, wet hoppy, with notes of pine, tangerine, a twinge of funk, and a smooth, wet hoppy finish. Perhaps not quite as dank or wet and hoppy as your sister’s crotch, but worth a go in either case.

Can from Capone’s. Pours hazy straw with frothy, white head. Nose is great cucumber and honeydew melon. Tastes of honeydew, cucumber, tart citrus, some salinity, and a tart and fruity finish. The cucumber gives this some balanced sweetness against the salinity, and this one really pops all over your eager tongue.

Manayunk Moneyman IPA
Tall boy can. No canned by date on bottom so I have no idea how old - wtf - how hard is it to put a canned on date on bottom. How can you truly respect beer and do that in the year 2016. Very dank aroma. Pours orange w nice head. Taste is mixed. The oatmeal is evident and a nice smooth touch, but there is a dank lingering oily bitterness that makes me wonder how old this can is. This is why your put dates on cans folks. If is was an old can I'd give it some slack but I have no clue and need to rate accordingly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
