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 from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a cloudy yellowsh straw with a small white head. Smells of flowery hops with slight piney tones. Tastes of earthy hops, water, and some grain, little bit strange. Beer is a little heavy on the carbonation, but still for its light body is very drinkable. Overall, a very good beer.

APPEARANCE: The Last Chance pours a bright, opaque orange. The head is small, but the bubbles are very small and well organized – very nice look. The head dissolves fairly quickly into a thin cap. The lacing is absolutely gorgeous, covering about 60% of the back of the glass.

SMELL: Pleasant aroma of citrus, spice and a little fresh cut grass. The citrus leans towards the orange end of the spectrum with a little grapefruit behind it. Would be 4.5 or higher if it were a little stronger.

TASTE: The grass from the nose comes through big time and is backed up by more green in the form of mint. A small wave of bitter grapefruit takes the middle of the sip before menthol crashes over it and takes charge for the finish.

MOUTHFEEL: The tiny bubbles from the head provide a nice tickle to the palate. The body is on the lighter side and it is a very dry beer, leaving the palate thirsty for that next sip.

OVERALL: The minty thing is a little weird at first. I have had plenty of IPAs with a hint of mint, but not this intense. That said, it is a nice combination with the grassy character. I would reach for this beer again.

A: Pours well into a .5 glass cylinder. Hazy, amber orange, modest head, with brief retention but great lacing. Thin head remains through the hour.

S: Aromas of hops citrus, malt, a bit of piss. Good stiff nose. Pissy smell subsides after a few minutes.

T: Tastes follows the smell, the overall citrusy hops, hop forward, then mildly balanced with biscuity malts. Nice bitter-sweet arc. Was good with tomatoes sauce and sausage. Good back bone of bitterness, pine, tingle, and fruit without being alcoholic. Refreshing. Gladly want to try again.

M: It feels light to medium-bodied, crisp on the palate, moderate carbonation. Refreshing, satisfying, lighter than most IPAs. Sessionable. Definitely would like another.

O: Solid IPA - citrusy, tingly, good example of the style, good introduction.
