Share This Review

Ananda is an American IPA brewed by Wiseacre Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.

Appearance

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.

Aroma

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.

Overall

The Ananda is an enjoyable brew with a nicely balanced palate. Though it’s pretty standard fare for an IPA, that doesn’t take away from what is generally a well-made brew.

Recommended Pairings

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

About the American IPA

The American IPA is the most popular craft beer style in the United States. And for good reason, too. When well crafted, its hoppy goodness delivers intense aromas and flavors that can be citrusy and fruity; floral and piney; earthy and herbal. The hops are complemented by a wide range of malts and other ingredients. It’s a popular playground for brewers to express their creativity and a veritable cornucopia for craft beer connoisseurs.
