Pours a cloudy marigold with an inch-thick cap of white foam that offers modest retention. Ample sediment is visibly afloat and comes to rest at the bottom of the glass.

The aromatics are pleasant with a scent of citrus and cracker malt.

Flavor

The palate is piney and herbal balanced atop an ample malt backbone. Finishes with a bite of grapefruit and an underlying caramel sweetness.

Mouthfeel

The feel is crisp with a medium body and moderate carbonation.

The following foods are recommended as pairings with the Ananda IPA: blue cheese, cheddar cheese, curry, fish, Gorgonzola, Limburger, poultry, shellfish, and Thai.
