COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Welcome to Shangri-La. Ananda is the ancient Sanskrit word for bliss & this dry hopped, juicy beer is our version of just that! Malted & flaked wheat create a velvety texture just before the citrus hop notes explode into pure nirvana. Meditation of sophistication.

Westmeister (1764) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Can provided by my pop who got it from his buddy who’s son owns the brewery. Can promised to be straight from the line - certainly tastes fresh. Pours hazed golden, unflitered, soapy white head. Smell is fresh citrus and hints of tropical fruits and some sweet malts in the background. Taste is lemon zest, citrus, light, some mango, low maltiness. Almost comes across as a session ipa, but the ABV is a bit higher. Not that the ABV is noticeable. Crushable.

Keg @ Flying Saucer, Memphis. Hazy light straw gold color with a creamy white head. Tropical mango and sea salt. Some unwashed underarm dankness. Nice and hoppy, restrained malt profile. Dried pressed pineapple and mango rings. Soft chalky finish. Nice and clean, dry. Light body, zippy carb. Yep, ticks the boxes.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, and spruce on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a hop bitterness.

Fresh, citrusy IPA. The brewers’ descriptors are apt. Great draft beer with food and outdoor conversation. Individually satisfying, the second round is enjoyable as well.

TheAlum (5721) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Draft on tap at Wiseacre Takeover at Haymarket for CCBW (Chicago, IL). Pours a decent hazed amber golden hue, a bit dulled overall with a cakey whitish head. Sticks around well nice layering and lacing. Aromas are decent hop elements, citric and nice florals. Some earth, bready malts and gentle grapefruit. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some decent bitterness with some decent florals, touch of melon and grapefruit. Touches of lemon with some decent soapiness. Middle is a touch bready, firm bitterness florals, nice citric edge, grapefruit and lemon juice, some faint pine. Backend is a bit bready, dry. Like most Wheat IPAs, it takes just a bit of time to ramp up from the more muted front end on account of the wheat. Finish is dry, middling bitterness and decent hop element. A pretty solid hop element with a more classic feel. Tasty, fresh stuff.

snoworsummer (2166) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2014
From a can. Pours hazy orange gold with a very foamy, frothy white head. Tastes like grassy, malty, sweet nuttyness. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet, malty roasted nuts and grains.

sonnycheeba (3569) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2014
Can. Pours slightly hazy amber with frothy white head. Aroma is citrus and grassy hops, biscuit and cracker malts, faint lemon, and faint toast. Flavor is dry malts, sharp bitterness, light fruit esters, and faint toast; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

BBB63 (6051) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Strange to see a canned beer with floaties (methinks from the wheat?) but that is just a visual impediment for the beer has a lovely juicy nose, slight dankness and a citric taste, light bitterness and biscuity husky malt. Solid drinker.

fiercepanda (574) - Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2013
A hazy golden beer with a small white head. Nice tropical aroma, some grass and citrus. The flavor is fruity, grassy, and a good bitter finish.
