Manayunk Wet Dreamin' IPA
Can. In no way bad but didn't capture that wep hop essence the way I was hoping. Still, an enjoyable quaff but an expensive 4-pack when you're paying for that harvest ale experience.

Manayunk 21st Anniversary Ale
Very thin almost non existant head of fine bubbles. Lots of grapes and ripe fruit in the aroma with some wet red oak, sweet malts and corn. Color is a hazy apple cider colored brew. Flavor is sweet and smooth. Lots more grapes and ripe fruit, pears, moderate malt backbone and a hint of tartness from the oak. Just enough to make you salivate for more. Hides its alcohol very well. 11%? Could have fooled me. Finishes sweet and smooth. A very tasty brew.

Manayunk Big Hoppa
Turbid gold pour with white head. Nose is huge hops with canteloupe and red sweet tart powder. Tastes hoppy, resiny, with cherry sweet-tart and sweet plantain flavor. Smooth and rich flavor. I wanna go down on a hot chick and drip/drink this one down the cleft of her labia while she calls me "Big Hoppa" and smacks my ass with a hop vine.

Manayunk Yunkin' Punkin'
I poured it from the can into a glass. It pours a pale orange with a fizzy, off-white head and some lacing. The aroma was sour pumpkin, apple, and grass. It wasn't very pleasant. The taste was off. It was sour pumpkin, lemon, and metal. It was thin and fizzy. Some of these pumpkin beers rely too heavily on the spice. This one could have used some more to cover up the weaknesses. This wasn't good.

Manayunk Coconut Crunch Porter
12 ounce can. Barely translucent brown color. Frothy tan head. Big soapy coconut nose with a bit of cocoa powder. Smooth roasted malt flavor is quickly taken over by the coconut. Hints of chocolate and dry toast. Like drinking a chocolate cream pie with coconut on top. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Decent flavor.

Manayunk Papal Ale
I was able to get a bottle pour of the Papal Pleasure which was aged in Malbec wine barrels in honor of the popes home country. There is definitely a grape aroma on this and a hint of deep red and purple in the color. Really loved the flavor on this as the Malbec gave it the flavor of figs and plums. A great hybrid of a wine and beer. The body held up well and I thought it was well balanced on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Manayunk Wingman - Pink Peppercorn
Can poured into a Trappist glass. Pours hazy straw color with a 1-finger white head. Aroma had a honey-sweetness to it, with a light spiciness from the peppercorns. Body is light, with a touch of oil. Very dry finish. Grassy and earthy flavors with a touch of citrus. Mild heat from the peppercorns appears as it warms.

Manayunk Wingman - Pink Peppercorn
Smells like a cherry coffee cake to me with he emphasis on the tart cherry. Taste is musty and yeasty from the start and I just made out the pepperiness of the peppercorns. It is smooth and the aftertaste gave off a vanilla flavor to me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at the P house, hazy orange golden with an average head. Notes are malty but also bitter but the hops seem stale or boring as far as the terpenes and citrus notes go.

Manayunk Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Porter
12oz can from Total Wine in Paramus, NJ. Brown pour beige head. Aroma has peanuts, chocolate, sweet malts Taste is more chocolatey, with peanut/praline, light cocoa, other malts. Nutty, but solid malts. Taste better than nose, solidly smooth and fairly tasty. Medium bodied. Some alcohol. Finishes sweeter than bittersweet. Solid and interesting. 13.8

Manayunk Daydreamin' - Passion Fruit
Not much of an aroma and was expecting more given the passion fruit. Taste has a very strong bitterness and not in a good way and it isn't really balanced out by any other flavors. Not impressed and I really like manayunk as they push the envelope a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Manayunk Big Hoppa
I still haven’t really sampled a beer from Manayunk that has agreed with me. And I’m not totally sure what "New England-style IPA" means. I sampled a little bit of this on draft at the Foodery in Phoenixville. The beer poured a murky, dark golden color with a small beige head. I tasted a bit more malt and than hops. I also didn’t get a lot of the citrus that the brewer advertises this beer to have. Very disappointing brew from, in my opinion, a disappointing brewery.

Manayunk Side Piece American-Style Pale Ale
Pint can from WW. Nose strong sweet caramel, citrus peel (gf), resin. Pour hazy golden with a copper undertones, large frothy-rocky beige head. Taste medium-strong sweet, low and rough bitterness occasionally up to medium, big flabby caramel, definitely not dry, pine, orange peel, grapefruit musk that would waft, lemon, bit of a mango-tropical spike, general clean and certainly bright. Too much alcohol showing, this is not an 8% beer. Watery edges and a little too yeasty in the medium body, also a little closer to flat than I’d like for something that’s supposed to refresh. Happy to down another, but after the last few cans, haven’t been thrilled with Manayunk’s foray into making hoppy beers. [2017.07.28: 3.3]

Manayunk Daydreamin' - Passion Fruit
Pin can from WW. Nose resin, citrus, wheat. Pour hazy bright golden with a bit of a copper undertone, large frothy white head. Taste light-medium bitter and dry (slightly rubbery/astringent), strong resin and medium-strong black pepper, earthy and gritty with rind but no pine, generally watery full body but neither heavy nor light. Scratchy and a touch earthy, clean, no real alcohol. aftertaste is bitter and astringent, an no sign of fruit flesh here -- did they just boil the passionfruit seeds? Fine, I guess? Didn’t bother to finish. [2017.07.28: 2.4]

Manayunk Rise & Grind Mexicake
22oz, green waxed bottle. Poured a black color with a medium sized tan head. Vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate, some dark fruits, and the peppers come out in a lingering burn at the end - but not an overpowering burn. A burn that I was able to get through the whole bottle and I generally don’t like too much of a peppery finish.

Manayunk Summer Paradise (2015+)
Crisp, clear golden and lightly orange coloured body with a very thin off-white head, only a centimetre tall. Aroma of light funk, metal, sour grapes and a touch of very subdued peach and apricot fruitiness. Ultra-Light-Bodied; Strong funky and twangy yeast and sour flavours at first that show some fruit and go very light with malt and a hint of fruits noticeable, but nothing in terms of pungency or body, this is mild for sure. Aftertaste shows some light sour flavours, a hint of funk from the yeast and a light feeler of fruits and sugars, but not much at all. Overall, a super mild and unassuming beer, even for Berliner standards. This doesn’t show much, but what it does show isn’t bad, it’s just super mild throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from GAT Beer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on 02-July-2016 for US$2,75 sampled at home in Washington just over a year later on 09-July-2017.
