3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ OíBrienís: Poured an opaque glowing orange hue that looked like to be an American wheat topped with a thin layer of head. Aroma is spiced with nice touch of hops but Iím not able to accurately smell much else because of the fellas near the door razing with their cigars. However, the flavor is heavy with hops and a nice delicate earthy spiciness sits well with me. Iím not able to really notice any wheat like flavors but there is an undeniable alcohol burn. I would say Iím impressed considering this is the first Latitude 33 beer Iíve tasted.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange colored beer with a small white head. Orange hop aroma, some pine, and noticeable alcohol. Notes of green apple along with sweet bread, toast, and caramel. The flavor is primarily sweet and malt forward, but there is a bit of citrus and pine hop character. Light bitterness, green apple, and alcohol on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap 4 oz. sample at Latitude 33 in Vista, CA.
Hazy, translucent, dark amber-copper with a fine, creamy, pale khaki head and fabulous lacing.
Aroma of grain, wheat, yeast and spice.
Taste of honey, grain, wheat, spice and obvious alcohol. A bit too heavy on the alcohol and the honey flavor for my preference.
Medium/full body and medium/low carbonation.

Draft. Hazy amber beer with a dark cream head. Sweet malt and light wheat aroma. Wheat and light caramel flavor with pine. Medium bodied. Wheat and caramel linger with pine. More hops than expected.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Pours slightly hazy yellow gold with a medium head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine and wheat, interesting. Flavor is citrus with notes of wheat, yeast and a notable alcohol presence. Velvety smooth in the mouth. This is quite a nice beer, but it seems like a DIPA to me. :)
