Notes/Commercial Description:
Last Chance IPA, 5.9% ABV, is a full-flavored hop assault delightfully lacking in balance. We’ve added a combination of Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe® and Columbus hops to produce pungent aromas of grapefruit, pine and citrus.

Weyerbacher Brewing Company donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every drop of Last Chance IPA to small, local animal rescue organizations. These shelters offer dogs, cats and other pets their last chance to find a new home.
Have a glass and make a difference! Cheers!

Poured into a glass, moderate bubbly (not very foamy) head with little retention. Smelled lemony with some grains. Taste was extremely bitter (can't say I didn't expect it) and the mouthfeel was too grainy, almost like my tongue was being attacked. Aftertaste ... was just awful.

Overall it felt like I was drinking carbonated (lawn) grass extract.

Note to all potential brewers of imitations: If bitterness is the only thing people remember about a beer, it's probably a sign that some of the other characteristics need to be amped up a bit.

Disappointing - I almost wonder if I got a bad pack of it. The beer tastes bitter, but not in a hoppy way; more like there was too much yeast, or something along those lines. I'll have to try another one at some point, because most everything else I've had from Weyerbacher I've enjoyed.

But, I did really like the funding for shelters, and got to take a picture of my dog with the beer, so I'm happy to write it off as a charitable contribution.
