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

Bottle at recent college tasting. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some caramel, some grapefruity hops, some pine, and some mild citrus character. Flavor is similar- leaning towards the grapefruit hops, but some nice malt in there as well. Overall, a nice pale at 5.8%.

SamP01 (658) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2015
A dark cloudy amber on the pour with a small off white head. Aroma of citrus and malt with mild citrus hops. Taste is sweet caramel malt, some mild citrus notes and hops bitterness. A medium body on the palate. good carbonation. Finish is on the sweeter side of the caramel malt flavor with some mild citrus fruity notes, and come citrus floral hops bitterness. Overall nothing really stand out, an ok drinking pale ale to try once.

Fatehunter (2144) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Pours a finger of head on a hazy darker straw body. The aroma is nice: grainy and a little honey. The taste is on the verge of dank grapefruit, a little malt sweetness. The texture is crisp. A nice pale ale.
