Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Knapp85 on 06-02-2012

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!

3.44/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a light and complex malt aroma that boasts of pale and biscuit malts along with a mild floral hop aroma. The taste is decent. It has a smooth pale malt flavor with a solid hop character. It's light and easy drinking, yet pretty ordinary. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is an above average beer, but not a top notch IPA.

Bottle from very recent Oak Tree Liquor trip. passable IPA, I am ok with the understated carbonation. Decent drinkability. Right at the median, citrus hops not interesting but competent, with a nice malting that helps the drinkability. Light orange coloured body.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: This poured a hazy gold with a bit of off white head.
S: It smelled like rusty pennies with lemon rind and a bit of sugary bread.
T: It tasted like very bitter lemon rind and wax, with a bit of copper hops. It had a harsh and lasting bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with a little carbonation. Poor light body.
D: This was not an enjoyable IPA. The scent and taste were totally one dimensional bitter with no real flavor or character. The body was weak, and the finish was really rough. This beer was not easy or fun to drink. Not recommended.

Bottle > Pint Glass
A - Pours a mildly hazy gold, pillowy 2 finger head, nice retention.
S - Big earthy hops, huge pine scent, fresh hops, a little mint, orange peel, and some grapefruit.
T - Big time IBU but not overwhelming, its got a fresh earthy hop profile, i love the fresh mint flavor in this beer, you get some of the citrus but not much.
M - Bitterness can be a bit much at times, but it sets well and is rather refreshing.
O - For a decent go-to IPA, its a good selection, Its a very fresh tasting pine and mint style IPA, and for what its worth, goes to a good cause.
