A - orangish amber with a thin, soft, loose layer of white head

S - faint malt, some pine, some citrus, musty, sweaty, and something akin to "homebrewy"

T - light malt, big hop notes - piny, herbal, spicy

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a decent beer, but it doesn't stand out as an IPA. The malt character is rather light and the hop character is spicy and herbal. The hop character reminds me of a few Americanized versions of Pilsners that I've had. This isn't a bad beer, but it's a beer that won't fit a category. It won't satisfy IPA lovers, it's too intense to be a pale ale, and it doesn't fit comfortably elsewhere. I enjoyed this beer and I think it's worth a try, but I think it won't do well in the IPA category.

A clear amber-copper color this IPA displays modest white coverage on top with decent striations of lace in retreat. The nostrils encounter a skunky lemon bread. A very nice blend of yeast and hop, sort of a pilsner-IPA idea. The taste buds enjoy a much more hop heavy citrus with a sharp bite that is followed by the skunky bread theme as you finish. This is nearly light bodied with a pretty aggressive carbonation that delivers a crisp, refreshing feel. At times some lemon cake sweetness sneaks through but for the most part this is a bitter bread IPA. Definitely gets the job done and will keep your hop hunger satiated!

Super animal lover christmasing near Easton so why not grab a sixer?

Lovely looking beer; stunningly clear dark gold; snowy white head with average retention. Patches of lacing clinging to the glass here and there. Dry hoppy aroma; citrus, oniony hops with a mere hint of crackery malt.

The flavor is also quite dry, with little maltiness and no sweetness; moderately bitter, hops have citric, salty, oniony qualities, light spiciness, dry finish. Vaguely metallic aspect mars the flavor somewhat, unfortunately.

Medium light body, medium carbonation. Not bad, not the tastiest hop combo I've come across, but its different than so many others on the market now and that definitely counts for something.

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.
