Shmaltz Brewing Company: Hop Manna
A delicious IPA bearing floral and citrus flavors, Hop Manna IPA® features six robust hops (Warrior, Cascade, Citra, Amarillo, Crystal, Centennial), it's dry hopped with Centennial, Cascade and Citra hops and is balanced out with five delicious malts (Specialty 2-Row, Wheat, Munich, Vienna, CaraMunich 40). Not a San Diego IPA (enticing as they are) and not trying to re-create the excellent standouts from friends such as Dogfish, Founders, Lagunitas, Three Floyds and so many others, Hop Manna IPA® aims to create a unique story of its own. Critics have offered overwhelming praise for Hop Manna IPA's® singular profile. All About Beer's "Beer Talk" judge Roger Protz notes, "Manna from heaven, indeed! The hop regime is amazing. It has a lush pale bronze color and a hop aroma that is literally stunning." DRAFT Magazine adds, "...its malt presence is sublime." Esquire.com included Hop Manna® as one of "The Best Beers of 2012."
