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

bhensonb (10688) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours clear copper with a slight white head. Aroma seems very floral with a possible citrus touch. Flavor starts very floral and then develops fruit that seems tropical. Then a little caramel is detectible. The malt’s a little unroasty for an APA, and tho it’s nicely hoppy, it’s not very bitter. On the other hand the bitter builds with time. Odd and tasty ale.
