Ithaca Excelsior! Thirteen

This beer is described as a double hoppy wheat, which led me to picture a summer beer good for sipping on the patio.  Not so.  This is definitely a fall beer, as it is not light.  There is a crisp citrusy finish that is perfect for a cooler evening.  Its taste resembles an IPA more than a wheat beer.  There is that clear bitter hop finish that is prevalent in all IPAs.  The aroma is piney, while the flavor is citrusy due to orange and lemon peel being added during the brewing process.  Even though this one goes down really easily, make sure to pay heed to the amount of alcohol in this beer.  At almost 9%, it could come back to bite you.
