Alternate Route

American IPA

ABV: 6.2%

Tasting Notes: Our West Coast inspired 6.2% IPA Alternate Route, utilizes the versatile Centennial hop at every stage of the brew from first-wort to dry-hop. Deep golden in color, this brew starts with a pleasant floral and mild citrus aroma, showcasing a unique balance of pine and grapefruit flavors before finishing with a lingering bitterness. What can we say? Sometimes you need to take an Alternate Route!

The Connecticut Valley Brewing Company likes to help keep the rivers, parks, forests and shore lines clean for future generations to enjoy so a portion of the sales of our beer goes to the Connecticut Fund for the Environment (CFE) – “Save the Sound” as well as the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CTFPA).
