American Solera Chase Exotic
What the brewers say
"Full of notes of passion fruit, mango, and blueberry bliss."
What our panel thought
"Orange-vanilla Creamsicle aroma; green- grassy hop pellets, garlic/diesel undertones. Slight bready sweetness dominated by orange-peel-hop flavors. Very smooth drinkability. Finish is quite dry. Hop contour whacks it out of the ‘drink several’ category."
What our editors thought
"Spicy nose with violet, lemongrass, passion fruit—weird, unexpected, with an overripe element. The sip is closer to the mean: lightly watery, rough lingering bitterness, with some redeeming funky fruit."
