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.

Love the nose on this off the initial pour; too bad it calms soon thereafter. A nice sweet fragrance replaces it. It was elegantly hoppy and floral while it lasted. Flavor profile is earthy in a muddled sense. Mild hop spice going on. Wouldn't mind some more definition on it honestly. A nice drinker.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Presentation: 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Served chilled. No bottle date readily apparent.

Appearance: Medium orange with a bit of a hazy body. Not much head but leaves a nice lacing around the glass.

Aroma: Bitter piney hops dominate the aroma. A touch of citrus in there as well. Pretty straight forward overall, with just a touch of roasted malt.

Taste: Bitter pine and some juicy citrus notes upfront. Not much in terms of malt in there. The hops are pretty one dimensional and really contribute some bitterness and not a ton else.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, a bit watery, and lacking some carbonation. Easy enough to drink.

Overall, a pretty forgettable, one dimensional IPA. The hops don't really bring anything besides some strong bitterness and a touch of citrus. Not one I am likely to revisit.

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.

The beer pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a very little bit of off white head. Turns out this one could use a little more carbonation. You can pick up some hops in the nose, but there isn't anything particularly special about it. The taste is bitter from the hops. Reminds me a bit of grapefruit rind, but the juicy citrus notes aren't really there. Bitterness crushes the tongue in the finish. There is some bready malt behind the bitterness, but the bitterness dominates. The finish is dry.

On-tap 2/23/2013 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong hops bitterness followed by some citrus and caramel sweetness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is an excellent IPA to pound down for a whole evening.

A: Tarnished orange pour with a good clarity. Spongy head sits moderately about at a finger high with average rate of retention. Carbonation is light and spacious with some splashy lacing adoring the vessel.

S: Fresh orange peel with a brief touch of tropical fruitiness is first noted. Some freshly squeezed citrus, but unfortantely the experience doesnt last long with a quickly dimisihing aspect that might pass you by if your not quick enough to the glass.

T: Dry orange, grassy hops, moderate bitterness and only meh level of complexity. No bottling date so cannot confirm age but this comes off rather ordinary, Dry flowery finish with a slight metallic nature .

M: Medium bodied, warming bitterness, again nothing to write home about, its there, but dont expect any strong company. Smooth and slick texture wise, dry orange bite and flowery bitterness with moderate appeal touches the tongue.

O: Overall somewhat bitter but bland in its complexity and flavor. Rather dull enjoyment, wont give you any incentive to order another one, and seems quite disappointment from the fellows that brought you double simcoe ale. Low level entry ipa that is only moderately bitter with little support otherwise. Boring bland best concludes things here.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a mostly clear amber with quick fading white head, think ring left with fair splotches of lace on the glass. Smell: light grapefruit, grassy, muted caramel, slightly steely. Taste: simple but intense flavors of lemon peel, grass, pine. Oily throughout with a drying finish. Quite hoppy, but not terribly interesting... Bottled 12/05/12.
