One of my all time favorites! Loved it when it was named Alchemy Hour and love it now with the new Chillwave name. THE TASTE STAYED THE SAME!!

Pours a clear dark golden amber with slowly fading off white head. Aroma is of caramel malt, citrus, orange floral pine hops, nice fruity essence. Taste is sweet caramel malt, yeast, citrus orange, a bit of tangy grapefruit, earthy pine hops bitterness. Palate is a full body, smooth with good carbonation. The finish is of caramel malt, yeast, citrus orange peel notes, some tangy grapefruit, with some good earthy pine and herbal hops bitterness for balance, alcohol is well behaved. Overall a very good, smooth and enjoyable brew.

Medium amber body. Drinking on tap. Mild hoppy aroma. Bitter grapefruit taste with a hint of sweet apples at the end. Different and delicious.
