Last Chance IPALast Chance IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Weyerbacher Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States
weyerbacher.com

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!

Look: On the dark side for an IPA, nearly an amber.
Smell: A nice, rich malty-piney aroma.
Taste: A quality East Coast IPA. Not too aromatic, but floral nonetheless. A strong malty backbone to keep the whole thing going. Very satisfying.

Bottle to glass. Appearance: Medium yellow color. Small white head. Aroma: Light pine, grass, maybe a hint of orange. Taste is sharp pine...then some hops, alkali finish. Not too pleasant. Not my kind of IPA.

Solid, but not special, IPA from a brewery that makes some really special beers. Hops are laid back with more pronounced bready/yeasty finish though it does brighten up (sour citrus) a bit when it warms up.

And kudos to them for donating proceeds to animal rescue - thank you Weyerbacher for being a real part of your community.

Poured from chilled 12 oz. bottle into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Brown and cloudy with a bit aeration (not much) and no head.

Aroma: Orange, honey, spice, and lots of hops!

Taste: Barley, hops, pine, very little fruit in the background. Noble hoppy taste, with a little bit of bitterness (pleasant).

Mouthfeel: Some lingering bitterness, otherwise clean.

Overall: Weyerbacher is consistently turning out superb beers and this an example of that tradition. Excellent beer...I've already added it to my list of beers that I will buy and consume consistently.

pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a medium head. nose; light floral pine and citrus hops. taste; bready malt, piney hops, lemon zest and pith, and some sweet orange rind middle. medium carbonation and a medium, lighty oily mouthfeel from all those citrusy c-hops (columbus, cascade & centennial). very straightforward and simple, but makes an easy session and a portion of the proceeds go to animal shelters. xo
