Connecticut Valley A Fantastic Voyage

Every time I looked at this can, it reminded me of the Coolio song “Fantastic Voyage.”

ABV: 6.5%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This All-American NEIPA features an abundance of Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe- all harvested from the Pacific Northwest. Beginning with a flowery tangerine aroma, this brew shows its depth with a distinct grapefruit punch before finishing with a spicy melon tang. Let this 6.5% brew take you on A Fantastic Voyage. At the Connecticut Valley Brewing Company we not only make delicious beer, we also celebrate the great taste of the craft by going on A Fantastic Voyage in brewing. The Yellow submarine, is a representation of the first submarine invented in CT in 1775 and for the Nautilus Submarine (which is the official Connecticut stateship since 1983) It is our way of commemorating the many people of CT that contribute daily to our country with their hard work and innovative ideas. Celebrate your Fantastic Voyage in life and know that by purchasing this beer you are saving the sound for a portion of the sale of this beer goes to the ‘Save the Sound’.”

Random: This was another beer gift, so I have no idea how much it was.

This beer poured with a one finger, white head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left some lacing on the glass. The body was yellow and slightly hazy, so I couldn’t see a huge amount of carbonation on it. The nose started with grapefruit flesh and pith, but quickly went into a note of honeydew. The taste started with grapefruit flesh as well, but quickly went into grass and honeydew. The body was on the medium side with a slight alcohol bite. It had a medium length, slightly sticky finish with honeydew. I liked this beer, but there are so many others in the style that are better. It’s still worth a try.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
