Concluding Remark: Weyerbacher’s Last Chance IPA is a solid rendition of the India Pale Ale. It’s made with a combination of four different hops–Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe, and Columbus–and has every flavor note one would expect from these varietals. Nothing too flashy or unique; just straightforward IPA-ness going on here. And to make you feel even happier while drinking it, Weyerbacher donates a portion of the proceeds from this beer to regional animal rescue operations (thus the name, “Last Chance.”) So you can feel good knowing that as you enjoy your array of hops, you’re helping dogs, cats, and other pets find a new home.
