3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, cloudy orange gold pour with very diminishing creamy white head, faint citrus hops, medium body, on the lightish side for what Iím used to, minimal grapefruit, medium crisp bite finish, refreshing, not very complex but drinkable, would be a decent house beer

It's a bit too weak in a all aspects. Malts are flatland there no real punch to the bitterness. It's good for a start of an IPA

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Iím so used to drinking double and imperial IPAs, I sometimes forget what can be done with a single. Weyerbacher Last Chance IPA is a relatively light beer that shows how well hops can be utilized. If you want a palate cleanser youíll be satisfied with this.
I poured a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance: Pure copper color that almost glows. Forms a good size, eggshell, foamy/frothy head which retains and laces quite well.
Smell: Not necessarily citrusy or piney, but the smell of hop pellets. Slightly earthy and spicy.
Taste: If youíve ever eaten a raw hop pellet you know just how dry and astringent they are. Weyerbacher Last Chance IPA is a flavor similar to that experience put into beer form. Much like the aroma, the taste isnít citrusy or piney, but straight up bitter and dry. I suppose you could describe it as slightly spicy, not unlike that of the noble hops, but considering none are used in this beer itís a bit odd it has the taste it does.
Sharp, dry, bitterness hits the tongue right away and does not let up at all. A hint of orange candy flavor through the middle, but a quick return to the bitterness at the end. Not much in the way of malt character at all, but itís understandable considering the brewery describes it as "delightfully lacking in balance." It has hints of garlic or onion, but only hints. Itís surprising the beer is only 62 IBUs since itís just so overtly bitter. Satisfying for sure, but the lack of the classic (and preferred) flavors of citrus and pine hinders it a bit.
Drinkability: Say what you want about this beerís palate, but the fact remains it still drinks like a standard IPA. The body is well into the full spectrum with a lively, crisp mouthfeel and lingering bitter aftertaste. Itís actually a little refreshing while itís in the mouth as it scrubs the tongue clean. At 5.9% ABV, Weyerbacher Last Chance IPA is also an efficient brew for getting so much chutzpah out of (what is now considered) a relatively light weight beer.

The aroma is very hoppy with pine and citrus hops. There is malt to balance but itís quite hoppy. The appearnace is amber gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and astringently bitter. The palate is thin. Overall a nice IPA but to bitter for me.

Pours a hazy orange. Citrus hops in the nose (grapefruit, orange). More resinous hop in flavor. Finishes bright and sharp. Easy drinking and good example of West Coast beer made on the East Side. Extra point Overall for HELPING ANIMAL RESCUE! Huzzah!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Havnens Vin & Tobak, Vejle. Light hazy amber with a small, creamy white gilm head. Pleasant fresh apricot and grapefruit aroma. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, bitter, apricot, grapefruit. Sadly a bit yeasty in the end. Good bitterness, though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden yellow from the bottle with thin off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of fresh hops, grassy and floral, with pale malt back bone. Taste follows almost to the t, but a hint of bitterness on the back end. Pretty good, nice fresh hop flavor.
