On Tuesday I was perusing my beer shop, Beer on the Wall, and I spotted Chase out the Snakes. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I knew I needed to have it. On top of it being a Marz beer, it also has some incredible artwork on the label. I’m not completely sure, but I think that that is St. Patrick himself leading the snakes out of Ireland with his pots of gold.
Poured out of a 12oz. can it has an orange color similar to the one found on Ireland’s flag. It is a Hazy New England style IPA that sports a solid 8% ABV. It smelled of heavy tropical fruits, most notably mango. The taste was fairly intense with loads of the same tropical fruits, piney citrus, and paired with a thick resin mouthfeel. Chase out the Snakes was delicious and I assume it won’t be around for long. If you can still find it, I highly recommend you give it a try.
Happy Drinking! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
