Cosmic JourneyCosmic Journey
Notes: Take flight space cadets! Our spring Goodness Series release is on the horizon.

Cosmic Journey is a hazy IPA that takes your taste buds on a galactic voyage through intertwining flavors of ripe papaya, juicy guava, and super-dank mosaic hops. With flavor and aroma this far out, it must be from another planet. This will be our first ever packaged hazy New England-style IPA! At 5.5% ABV and 40 IBU, it's mellow enough to crack a few cans poolside and also ample for pouring into a snifter to enjoy complex flavor and aroma in complete harmony.

I got a can of this beer off the single shelf from Binnys in Montgomery, IL. It poured a hazy yellow with no head and no lace. The scent had grapefruit zest. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with grapefruit presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

My can is 3 months & 2 weeks old so it's a little date but it's still drinkable. The pour is a light hazy orange with some chunks in it. The aroma is intense & bitter & the taste is the same sort of like garlic & onions. Additionally, i'm getting some bitterness from the guava as well as some sour on the taste & there is slight papaya as well, & some dank, it's an interesting IPA. Well at least now I can say I was able to have a beer that had guava & papaya added to it. Cheers! B

A- pours a hazy pale yellow color with a one-finger foamy white head that has short retention

S- nice tropical hop nose with notes of guava, passionfruit & tangerine. Herbaceous mosaic closes it out

T- equal parts guava and orange zest up front, followed by some pithy notes, as well as some herbal notes, the finish gives more citrus peel, lingering bitterness with more citrus

M- medium body with medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a semi-dry finish

O- good drinkability and plenty of complexity, given the abv

There's a reason why Funky isn't known for their IPAs. This time they hit the nail in the head with the juicy, citrusy aromas. Taste was odd, unsettling by the end. It's a pass for me.

Another hazy IPA from this great brewery, when poured has a definitely guava & papaya aroma. Overall good drinking beer, with a low ABV and IBUS of 40, it's an everyday drinking hazy IPA that could be enjoyed both indoors and outdoors with or without food. Golden hazy when poured, light fruit aroma and it's a light drinking IPA, overall good brew.
