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 (2166) - 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.

oliodnb (257) - ITALY - JUL 26, 2014
355ml bottle, bottled january 2014. Pours a beautiful copper with a fine, creamy light beige head. Despite being too old some fruity hoppiness is still present in the nose along with some caramel. Taste is moderately sweet malts with no fruits at all but still with some herbaceus notes from the hops. Have to try this fresher.

EdInSaltLake (593) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Apricot fruit and light bread malt aroma. Malty flavor: bread, toast, light caramel. Fruity hops are less prominent in the flavor. Earthy, and a little pepper.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a decent hazy pale orange color with a one finger white foamy head. It lasted about a good minute before dieing gratefully into the body and left some hanging leftovers of lacing. The smell had a bright citrusy arrangement of fruits such as light grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Some light caramel malts present themselves as it warms. The taste was bittersweet all the way through and balances a nice crisp blend of malts to hops. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability allowing just a tad of sharpness on the tongue. Overall, I say this was a good APA well worthy of having again.

The brew is an amber orange color with a small white head. There is limited lacing. There is a honey, molasses and fruit scents with yeast. It has a sweet taste with molasses and honey notes, combined with malts. It has a unique sweet finish with a tinge of bitterness. It comparison with other APA’s it has a unique taste that is different from the hoppy character.

This was an o.k. pale ale. It was a tad too bitter/sour for my liking. Otherwise the hoppiness and "paleness" were all there.
