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

a_cross (623) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Lovely dark golden brown colour, just a wisp of a white head; enticing peachy orange aroma; tastes fairly straightforward: orange, bitter, dry finish; simple, but not excessively harsh; nicely balanced and a pleasant drink.

Bottle thanks to cheap. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Hop aromas have dropped off greatly but there is some earthly hop aroma left. Backbone beer is decent though. Light caramel sweetness. Light bitterness.

bottle - Pours lightly hazy orange with a one finger head. It smells of floral hops and caramel malt. Medium bodied and moderately hopped, it’s a tasty, slightly above average craft brew.

Transfer from BA review on 6-14-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a beautiful golden amber color with a thick and billowy off white head. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is a nice mix of sweet, malt, and hop. The sweet is of a caramel and lighter fruit smell of orange while the malt is of a bready nature. The hop is a nice mix of grapefruit and floral smells giving a nicely balanced aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with a smooth bready taste mixed with a little bit of caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances a bit of citrus comes to the tongue in both a sweet and hoppy way. A sweeter orange and more bitter grapefruit come to the tongue with the grapefruit overall taking over the sweeter tastes as the flavor moves more toward the end. Along with the increase in grapefruit, so too comes some lighter pine and floral hop tastes which in the end take away from some of the smoothness, but deliver a light to moderately hopped bready taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel-The body of the beer is on the average to slightly creamier side with a carbonation level that is average. The combo is rather nice for the sweeter and maltier flavors upfront while also allowing for the hop to shine at the end. Overall – A rather nice drinker. It balances a sweeter/maltier front with a nice hop blend at the end to create a nice clean flavor to linger on the tongue.

A weaker than normal American Pale Ale. Good effort, but not the best. August 3rd, 2013.

slowrunner77 (6084) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2014
A brighter hop character than expected (which is nice) but not a whole lot going on after that. Thin and simple. A little carboard and caramel. If not for the cirrusy hops this would suck. As it is, ok."

Bookseeb (118) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Appearance has an burnt orange color supporting minimal head leaving nil lace. Smell has a nice sweet floral scent, smelling almost like Hawaiian punch. Taste again having a note of Hawaiian punch with a good bit of hops. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.
