Bottle. Beer of the month club. Hazy amber color with a big off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma with citrus, flowers and a bit of piney notes and some caramelly, somewhat cookie-ish malt. Flavor starts sweetish, pretty malty, with caramel and biscuits notes and continues with lingering fruity and floral hops bitterness. Medium-bodied with a mellow mouthfeel. A nice IPA. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2011
(12oz bottle, courtesy of Cavie) Pours a clear orange body with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, resin, citrus, and earthiness. Flavor of caramel, grass, and orange with dry, bitter finish. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Deep gold pour, white head. Citrus/herbal hops. Caramel. Flavor is a good blend of hops and malt. Great stuff. DuffMan (10433) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2012
Bottle. Brassy hazy golden with a lustrous, thick white head that shows good retention. Aroma is sweet citrus, suggestive of tangerine, and spruce tips. Sweet malt with juicy bitter orange hop character, lightly piney. Finishes with assertive bitterness without being over-the-top pithy or astringent. I liked it, but then again I like pretty much everything these guys do.

Draft. Advertised as just "Hop Manna" with no number associated with it. Pours orange with a thin off white head. Floral hoppy aroma with some light piney notes. The flavor has resinous piney hops, flowery notes, and some grainy malts. Decent. drowland (8730) - Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2011
9/21/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie! Dark orange pour with a nice off-white head that fades but laces a ton. Muted, earthy hop aroma with some caramel in there as well. Slightly musty flavor with a bitter kick and tart orange peel. Meh. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2012
12oz from the sampler box pours slightly murky copper in body with off white head. The aroma is nice and pretty bold with rich tangelo and grapefruit and some pine like hoppy bitterness just churning around and around. The taste is full yummy spicy hops mixing with various citrus hop notes as well as resiny pine like hop bitterness too heading midway and into the finish. Darn nice IPA with plenty of yumminess to go around. One of the better IPAs I’ve had in a while. jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Draft at the taproom wIth Linh, vi, and thi. Pours a hazy amber orange with white lacing. Aroma is fresh citrus hops. Mouthfeel is nice with notes of citrus hops and bitterness. wlajwl (6811) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Citrus, mid-range dry pine/hops in aroma. The flavor is citrus/hops with a slightly off body. Can’t detect what it is with the body that isn’t what it should be, this was drinkable as is but the body was off.
