COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We practice alchemy every day turning water, malt, hops and yeast into liquid gold. Alchemy Ale melds years of experimentation and our special Alchemy hop blend, in a pure expression of brewing art and science. Join us in unlocking the mystery to the perfectly balanced, perfectly hopped ale. Alchemy Ale has a bright, distinct hop character balanced with hints of caramel and a remarkably smooth finish.

Proprietary Hop Blend: Alchemy hops are a blend of choice hops from the Pacific Northwest, hand-selected by our brewers each year. This secret blend is the backbone of all our beers, and the magic behind Alchemy Ale.

Malts: Pale, Caramel, Munich, Vienna Extra Special Original Gravity: 13.8 Plato

Pours clear old gold with a medium off-white head with decent retention; leaves a little lace. Aroma is catty, grapefruit, a little earth. Taste is lightly bittersweet with lots of citrus notes, a tinge of metal, biscuity flavors. Lingering light bitter finish. Highly carbonated with a medium body. Good.

Pours a lovely pale amber. Small head but decent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, grassy hops, and bready caramel. Light and soft mouthfeel. Initial taste is citrus hops with a hint of pine, then doughy malt. Tastes a bit watered down. Finishes slightly bitter and metallic. I miss Drifter...

Oscbert (1128) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Berry like fruitiness in aroma with grapefruit, caramel, and bread Pours a hazy golden amber color with small white head. Sweet minerally bready flavor with fruity hops, grapefruit, caramel. Medium bodied with medium co2, lingering sticky bittersweet finish Decent pale ale. Not as good as drifter in my opinion. Bummed they replaced it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

danielecamo (738) - ITALY - MAY 13, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore arancio, piuttosto limpida, schiuma fine e poco persistente. Aroma di frutta esotica non molto intenso, frutta gialla ed a seguire caramello, mou e fieno. Al palato corpo medio, gasatura non eccessiva, aroma dapprima di frutta esotica e pesca che svanisce rapidamente per lasciare spazio ad un caramello troppo intenso e stucchevole. Birra che ha perso la sua parte aromatica donata dal luppolo.

arminjewell (8478) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Pour out of bottle, hazy golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange peel, grain, biscuit, some slight lemon into a bit of grass, slight piney notes into a bit of spice. Taste was a mix of grass, grain, bread into a bit of pine, some orange, slight caramel with a hint of pine, finishing slightly bitter.

355ml bottle (Oak Barrel, Vantaa)
Pleasant fruity hoppy aroma, lots of caramelly biscuity malts. Dull sweet caramelly malts. Watery palate. some minerally harshness. Finish gently bitter. Extremely boring ale.

Diabobale (273) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - APR 12, 2015
Si presenta con un bell’arancio, medio, velato con lievi riflessi dorati. La schiuma è poca, beige e cremosa, ma con persistenza quasi nulla. Al naso straripante è la presenza dei sentori di frutta matura (pesca gialla su tutti), sopraffatta dal miele e dalla carruba sul finale. Il corpo è nella media, molto morbido, con una carbonazione essenziale. Il gusto però è leggermente stucchevole, troppo dolce, con presenza di un leggero sentore resinoso e con un amaro finale erbaceo di lieve persistenza. Il sorso, così, diventa rotondo, per nulla secco, che non lascia una bella sensazione di pulizia.

SimonD_Bel (18) - Liege, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2015
Belle couleur miel, mousse faible et sans tenue. Odeur amère très présente, très agréable. Bière plutôt plate, goût houblonné très fort, touche florale bien développée vient après. Très bonne bière, entre la Pale Ale et l’IPA, avec cependant des arômes très développés.

sremed60 (15) - Arizona, USA - APR 8, 2015
A very nice beer. Poured 12 oz bottle into a weizen style glass. A nice golden to orange color, 13 SRM. (a little cloudy). About a finger of off white eggshell color head. I drank this a week before the "Best by" date so that might account for the slight lack of carbonation. A nice orangy pale ale aroma and a well balanced American pale ale flavor. Nothing extraordinary. The body was probably a little on the heavy side and the finish was a little dry. But a nicely crafted beer.
