India Pale Ales are beers that lean towards bitterness. Many IPAs balance that bitterness with a lot of residual sweetness, which is not something our brewers wanted. Instead, we wanted to balance the beer by providing a nice fluffy texture by using malted and flaked wheat which also helps showcase the juicy hop aroma and flavor. Hops add bitternes, flavor, and aroma, depending on the variety and when they are added to the brewing process. Cascade and Centennial hops give Ananda juicy citrus, mango, and melon aromas and flavor.
