Our bleeding heart intern Evan picked this beer because a portion go to animal rescue shelters.
Drinking for a good cause? I'm down.
Look-A hazy amber
Smell-Hoppy with a slight orange aroma...or is it citrus?
Taste-Strong hop taste. Dry on the finish
Mouthfeel-medium bodied. Aftertaste isn't very good. Leaves me dry mouthed.
Drinkability-This is one to forget. Hop flavor is there but you can get that a lot of places. Other than the hops, the citrus is nonexistent in the taste. The aftertaste is just bad. Way to dry and not in a good way.
About Last Chance IPA:
Weyerbacher’s Last Chance IPA is a west coast-style full-flavored hop assault delightfully lacking in balance. We’ve added a combination of Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Columbus hops are used to produce pungent aromas of grapefruit, pine and citrus. Last Chance IPA weighs-in at 5.9% ABV and 62 IBUs.
Now… for the name. Why “Last Chance?” The name “Last Chance” is a nod to something held very close to the hearts of many of the employees at Weyerbacher Brewing Company: Animal Rescue. Weyerbacher 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.
Have a glass, make a difference! Cheers!
