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.

jbruner (2298) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2013 Pours a clear golden orange on tap with thin cap of off-white lacy head that sticks nicely. Aroma is hop forward, floral and earthy, then a hint of pale malts, almost biscuit like. Taste follows with a lightly bitter finish, clean and easy to drink. Not bad but nothing too crazy.

Caytinator (939) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Kind of lackluster for a pale ale fine overall, spicy hops, nothing that special but passable...fine fresh taste and stuff. Definitely no magic here.
