He'brew Hop Manna IPA

The He'Brew line of kosher beers is from the Shmaltz Brewing Company of Clifton Park, New York. They are "The Chosen Beer." This 6.8% ABV beer is dry hopped with Centennial, Cascade and Citra hops, and also uses Warrior, Amarillo and Crystal hops. The bottle has a long, Biblical explanation of the term "manna."

The beer pours a lightly hazy copper-orange-amber in color with over an inch of thick, foamy, off-white head.  The aroma is fruity, tangy, citrusy, orange, slightly spicy, a bit of grass, with caramel malt notes underneath.  The taste is also fruity and tangy, orange, grapefruit, tea with lemon. It has a nice, smooth mouthfeel and a quite bitter and dry finish. It drinks very refreshing. Very solid, not spectacular, it is worth trying.
