I was so excited when my beer guy got this in at the store. Having not tried alchemy hour I was thrilled to sample chillwave. THIS ale pours a beautiful clear copper color with a thick white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The nose is a very fresh blend of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. There are a lot of fresh hops here, supported by just enough malt to some what balance this beer. The mouth is medium bodied and coats the palate gloriously. As far as flavor, this one has it going on. It is a total hop bomb with tons of citrus, pine, and grass. There are significant notes of mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. This is way beyond what I expected from a nob west coast ipa. Beautifully bitter and hoppy and so fresh one can almost taste the tap. This is a brewery that I had long ago lost faith in but if they can produce s west coast style ipa like this than maybe I should rethink my opinion.
