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!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- Poured into oversized snifter from the bottle. Slightly hazy orange body, in low light room, and an off white head. Cap rises to about one finger and has decent retention. Small ring deposits nice lace patches.

S- Hops, deep caramel malt, cereal and cracked grain notes make up the bulk of the aroma. The hops have a grapefruit/orange feel with some floral as well. Hops fade over time.

T- Really big cereal grain and cracked malt feel makes itself known along with the edgy citrus hops. Hops lend lemon zest, orange and big grapefruit notes along with some floral and pine hints.

MF- Moderately carbonated body with a fairly creamy, silky feel. Medium bitterness level in the finish.

Pretty nice IPA with good citrus hops and more malt than most modern IPAs. I like how the malt works here with the zesty hops.

Pours a slightly hazy golden body with a small white head with decent retention. Aromas are primarily reminiscent of grapefruit with a bit of honey and English muffin notes as well. The taste is unrelentingly bitter from start to finish, with a bit of graininess and whisper of apricots and on the mid-palate. The grapefruit flavors dominate the hop profile, with a small hint of pine on the finish. As far as IPAs go, this beer strikes me as needing a stronger (and more interesting) malty character and a greater depth of hoppiness (more citrusy or floral notes) in order for me to call it "good."

Last chance IPA is an IPA with an interesting malt profile but a disappointing lack of hop flavour.

A: Nice yellow colour and a good 2 cm head that lasts well. 4.5

S: Spicy weed. Hops. 3.5

T: Roasted malt with some unexpected dark fruit notes. Chlorine from the hops and not a hell of a lot of other flavours from them. Bitterness in the finish. Disappointing lack of hoppiness. It's a shame because the malt profile is pretty interesting. 3

M: Pretty low carbonation. 3

O: 3
