Ithaca Excelsior Fourteen
Ithaca Excelsior Fourteen is an American Black Ale/IPA, their fourteenth anniversary ale. Batch E! 042. Starting out with roasted grains, caramel, chocolate and a sweet doughy flavor like a little sugar cookie. The hops are big and bold pine and citrus, lots of pepper and bittering hops on the finish. Black IPA’s can be very hit and miss, but there is a lot to like about this one.
