BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Year-round

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!

I have enjoyed several from Weyerbacher and their Simcoe Double IPA (unfiltered) is one of my favorites so I had high expectations for this. Hmmm. Color and smell are good but taste is kind of 'not aligned'. It's almost as though the ingredients are not well matched or engineered or something. I'm disappointed. Bitter, tangy, not orchestrated well.

Bottle from Bert's
Slightly hazy light golden color with a decent sized bubbly white head. Earthy pine and resin with a sweet bready maltiness to back it up. Not quite as dry as I'd like but its a decent beer.

A good ipa, nothing overwhelmingly memorable about it. I carried it in bottles and it got overlooked quite a bit. I would carry it again but on draft.

Bottle copped at the Cloverleaf Tavern. An easily drinkable, session-type IPA with a strong hop backbone. Moderate nuances of pine and citrus dominate the palate. I was actually a fan of this one. Good stuff. Recommended.

A pint on tap at the Wall of Beer (Tiger Mart; SC).
The hazy orange-Amber body is topped by a good head that has decent retention and leaves streaky lacing on the glass.
Over ripe tropical fruit notes from the hops dominate the aroma. The taste follows but has little in the way of unattractive aspects the "over ripe" description implies.

Feel - medium body and near medium carbonation.

Overall - a good but not great mix of hops that's sure to appeal to some more than it did to me.
