Very excited to try this given the other reviews, and it did not disappoint. Poured bright orange, just a touch hazy. Foamy and light head that dissipated fairly quickly, with noticeable lacing left behind. Smell was great - tropical and citrus fruit, a little spiciness, breadiness, a touch of pine and a presence of alcohol. Taste was similar - tropical fruit up front with solid bitterness and the fresh dough taste I've found in most Great Lakes beers. Alcohol is there, but is not overpowering. Mouthfeel is on the medium/medium-light side for a DIPA, but makes for an easy drinking 9.4%.
Overall an awesome beer that I'm happy to have found. Given recent revisits to some other DIPAs that I thought were amazing at the time, Alchemy Hour does very well in comparison.
