Ithaca Beer Co. Highlights:
Flower Power IPA: Enjoy the clover honey hue and tropical nose. Simultaneously Punchy and soothing with a big body and a finish that boasts pineapple and grapefruit. Flower power is hopped and dry-hopped five different times throughout the brewing and fermentation process.
Happy Pils: Brilliantly clear and refreshing, this German Pilsner boasts a healthy amount of spicy noble Germans hops, and a dynamic, yet restrained malt backbone. Our Happy Pils is bound to bring a smile to any craft beer lover’s face.
May Xipaa “Alexir”: The Alexir is an exuberant New England IPA with a generous and unique pairing of Citra, Chinook, and Simcoe hops throughout the boil, whirlpool and double dry hop additions. This Spring potion balances malt sweetness with a confident thirst quenching mouthfeel. Golden in color while hazier than previous XIPPA!s. You’ll find the bold character of big pineapple, fresh citrus and tropical fruit makes this entry a perfect hoppy tonic for May afternoons and evenings – indoors or out, standing or sitting. For added intrigue, the discerning drinker will enjoy a small amount of Pacific Jade that brings in a small element of citrusy zest, pepper and funk.
