The beer previously known as Alchemy Hour was one of my favorite beers of 2013. Well now it is back under it’s new name Chillwave Double IPA. Check out my review to see why I thought this new release from Great Lakes was such a great beer. Cheers! From the brewer: “Distinctively American, the Double IPA or Imperial IPA is thought to have originated in California. This fairly new style is a heartier, hoppier version of the traditional IPA with a higher alcohol content, creating a very strong and flavorful drinking experience.
Flavor: Hop-forward with a balanced blend of Mosaic and Nugget hops
MALT Harrington 2-Row Base Malt: Allows color and flavor from other specialty malts to come through; makes for very clean beer Caramel 45: Contributes to amber color; provides complexity Honey Malt: Contributes sweetness
HOPS Mosaic: New U.S. hop; provides floral, tropical, fruity, and earthy characteristics Nugget: U.S. bittering hop; provides floral, resiny aroma and flavor Cascade: U.S. hop with citrus characteristics for aroma”
