BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Pennsylvania, United States

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!

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottleneck says 020613 and 060613.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch cream-colored head that retains well before becoming a thick sheet of surface foam. Fluffy, non-resilient lacing.

S- Piney hop aroma that has a bit of a plastic-y, medicinal fume to it.

T- The bitterness has little character to it as the plastic continues on into the taste. Still, easy to drink since the alcohol is so light. Not much malt going around, just one-dimensional bitterness.

M- Sharp and not so pleasant. Probably the main downfall of the beer. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- An IPA that's bitter just for the sake of being bitter. Quite underwhelming.

Pours a clear copper with a frothy half inch cream head that dissipates somewhat quickly, leaving spotty lacing.

Resin, skunky hops, muted grapefruit, and fresh cut grass form the initial aroma. Onion and pine add complexity to the bready caramel malt backbone.

Flavor is initially very malty, becoming resiny and moderately bitter mid palate. Minerally hops are present throughout, with hints of muted citrus.

Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and slight alcohol warmth. There's a bit of astringency present.

Minerally and bitter, the flavoring hops lack somewhat in citrus character. Fairly bready and earthy, but not really enough complexity to merit a better score.
