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.

Have a glass and make a difference! Cheers!

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.

A beer for a great cause. I only purchased because of the cause. Makes the beer so much better! Weyerbacher nailed this one big time. Thanks for supporting my local shelter.

LOOK: Medium to darker amber.

SMELL: Citrusy, with a hint of almost pine, but not quite pine.

TASTE: The bitterness definitely comes out from the first sip. While not harsh, it definitely contrasts with the fruity smell you perceive. But it does fade quickly.

FEEL: A bit heavy, though not thick.

A good beer for a great cause. A nice, hoppy IPA. The contrast between fruity/piney smell and hoppy bitter taste can be good or bad, depending on personal preference. When in the mood for a hoppy IPA, I usually get a 6, for the flavor, but also to support the cause.

I tried this on tap -review from notes.

The color is golden amber hazed shade with white head. The smell of hops is good but grapefruit smell with slight herbal and spice type aromas. The feel is very good with moderate bitterness and balance of malt with medium carbonation and semi-dry finish.

The taste is almost as good as the feel with slight tropical and citrus flavor with some bitter and herbal hop flavors which have a backdrop of malt to use as a foundation the yeast is clean in the taste and finish is semi-dry. Overall this is decent but not something I would seek out -worth a try
