Amazing smell.. one of the best. Great mouthfeel. The taste is an explosions of orange and grapefruit, how I like them. There is a sweetness there, but it's not over the top. It's hoppy as you'd expect a DIPA to be, but not over the top and astringent like some. Honest, this is the bets DIPA in Ohio. Somet think Bodhi is amazing.. it's good.. but THIS is hands down the best DIPA for this state. I do miss the Alchemy Hour name though!

Being in GA it is only when I travel that I can get my hands on Great Lakes brews. I find their products to be consistent with style and always clean front and back. I stumbled on Chillwave in a craft shop in NC. I have not been able to acquire Heady Topper or Pseudo Sue, but I can't imagine anything better than this CW stuff. Bronze color, floral and citric aroma with a malty wildflower honey background, and a taste that follows perfectly. CLEAN crisp and absolutely delicious. The best 2xipa I have found to date. I am going to have to find a recipe clone for this. Highly recommend!
