Resinous, grapefruity and herbal smells. It starts out with the bready sweet malt and the middle and end taste is a huge herbal and resinous bitterness. Its leafy and green tasting and sort of tastes like marijuana. Its a huge dry tasting IPA for a lower abv.
I've had this in the bottle and now on tap in a growler because of my friend Phil who works at my local Spirits Unlimited. In both of our opinion this on tap is far superior than the bottle for some reason. The leafy fresh hop taste comes through a lot more and tastes fantastic and it went from being an average IPA to an outstanding one. Definitely get this on tap and compare it to the highly rated IPA's on this site, you wont be disappointed.

This might be something that I will buy regularly. It combines Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Columbus hops, and has only a 62 IBU rating, so the bitterness is not overwhelming. There is a strong hoppy aftertaste that gives it a dry mouthfeel. However, I agree with other reviewers that this beer may need a better balance. I think the hops drown out the malt flavors, and that the malt flavors should be strengthened. On the other hand, it is a great beer if you want more hops, less malt.
It is an inexpensive IPA in the south eastern PA area. I purchased a case of 24 bottles for only $30 at the Beer Barn in Birdsboro, Pa.
Also, it's advertised that "Weyerbacher donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every drop of Last Chance IPA to small, regional animal rescue operations. These shelters offer dogs, cats and other pets their last chance to find a new home." You can find which organizations receive the donations by going to this site -- http://weyerbacher.com/blog/2012/05/last-chance-ipa/
Very good tasting beer, although it is lacking malt, and your kitties and puppies as you buy it. :) I will definitely buy it again.

On-tap 2/23/2013 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.
T: The taste starts out with a strong hops bitterness followed by some citrus and caramel sweetness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is an excellent IPA to pound down for a whole evening.
Serving type: on-tap
