I fondly remember Alchemy Hour as one of the best beers I have ever tried, and was eagerly awaiting the release of Chillwave. This year's batch is as great as I remember.

It has a Carmel malt backbone with a light citrus kick and lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is almost foamy, smooth yet airy.

Have tried it side by side with a few other highly rated DIPAs and IPAs, and this is superior. Has a complexity and drinkability that most others can't compare with.
