Blumig bitterer Beginn. Hell, aromatischer Hopfen. Frisch, würzig, die Hopfigkeit hält an. Weicher aber bestimmt bitterer Ausklang. 10/12/9/11/11/12

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Pinocchio’s. Pours a clear, amber color with a thin white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, grassy, a little cereal malt. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, grass, some pine, a weak malt backbone, unbalanced as the description notes, with a bitter, grassy finish. Not my favorite from Weyerbacher.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On the Ninth Day of Christmas the beer Gods gave to me... An underwhelming IPA. Pours an amber orange color with a white foam head. Aroma of earthiness that is unchecked giving off a musty like aroma. The citrus and caramel is very muted. Sweet dry caramel taste with hop spice some malt balance but a bit of an aftertaste from the earthiness.

Bottle at Mikkeller. Clear amber – white head. Metallic aroma, light sweetness, toasted, dusty, light malty, light light bitterness, dry light bitter finish... more like a pilsner than a IPA - Last Chance was some month ago.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden amber appearance with a sour aroma. Taste matches the aroma, hoppy with a hint of sour aroma. Very middle of the road IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden amber color..pretty active carbonation..aroma is mostly lemony with..mouthfeel and palate are intriguing but not in a good way..pretty light and bubbly on the finish..not very memorable and this is probably a sure bet that this is the last time for last chance...

This is a beer for a very good cause!
Weyerbacher Brewing Company donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every drop of Last Chance IPA to small, regional animal rescue operations. These shelters offer dogs, cats and other pets their last chance to find a new home.
Sampled... a 12 oz. bottle.
Cloudy, orange- copper appearance.
Taste is of earthy hops, biscuity malts, floral and (lemon peel) hops with very light pine ...old, mature hops.
A little better than a mid level IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a soft and clean straw amber with one finger of off white head. Nose is a little funky/heady and off/vegetal. Slightly herbal.
Flavor is grassy with a light corn character and zesty/citrus rind character. Light bodied and medium bitterness and carbonation. Just feels like it’s missing something.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber/golden with an off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops plus a little pale and caramel malts. Flavor about the same with very little malts. Average texture. A decent IPA but could be much better.
