COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Latitude 48 Ahtanum IPA is brewed with only Ahtanum hops, a newer variety from the Yakima Valley area of WA. The hops are added at three points during the brewing process -- bittering, late kettle and dry hopping. Ahtanum hops contribute a balanced and typically "American" orange peel, piney and floral flavor and aroma to this brew, balanced by a slight sweetness and full body from the five different malts.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Bottle from Capone’s sampler pack. Pours medium copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, tannins, tangerine, floral, and I swear I smell mild rauchy notes. Tastes very citric, orange zesty, with a solid c malt bill, and resiny piney finishing notes.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 5, 2011
12oz bottle from "Deconstructed" mix pack. Pours a beautiful clear golden orange with a frothy off white head that left some nice lacing. Nice floral citrus nose, light hop bitterness in the finish.

vyvvy (3999) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Pours golden / amber with a beige head. The aroma has somewhat spicy hops, light bread, caramel, doughiness and a hint of lemony citrus. Medium crisp body with moderate micro sharp carbonation. Starts with toasty caramel malt, crackers and spicy hops. The finish continues with much of the same, but there is a very earthy character to the hoppiness and some dirty citrus. Decent IPA.

StefanSD (2136) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAY 3, 2011
12 oz bottle from Decon 12 pack. Pours a translucent copper color with a small off-white head that soon fades to a fine ring. The aroma is soft and earthy with some fresh green pine and sweet caramel malts. The flavor is spicy with white pepper, pine, pecans, citrus, toffee and caramel. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration with lingering biter pine. Once again I prefer the single hop over the regular latitude 48.

MadIndian (2385) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2011
This version of the Latitude definetly stood out from the rest in as far as complexities. Definite peperry / spice and grass aroma. The taste was earthy/ dirty, orange peel and hop. It was blended well with a nice medium body and good dry finish. Well Done.

wlajwl (3882) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Dry pine in the aroma, the flavor is slightly complex, with the pine mixing with the citrus and the malts to create a balanced flavor. A pretty good IPA.

demitriustown (1068) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2011
12 oz bottle: Aroma is nicely piny, flowery, and a bit of a citrus note. Malt is in the backing but takes a while for it to come out to the forefront. Appearance is a clear amber with a thick white head that lingers. Taste has got a little bit more hop bite, piny, citrus, and nicely bitter. Palate is medium bodied, lively carbonation, and a lingering hop finish. Overall, a nice IPA as well. Cheers!

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle: This version of the L48 has a little more earthy aroma, and a juicier floral well-rounded bitter ending.

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2011
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a bright clear copper with mellow carbonation and a soft off white head. Aroma is a grassy hop scent with a touch of orange peel. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor starts with a mild malt taste with a bright hop flavor, a touch of citrus and white pepper then ends with a mellow bitterness. After taste is dry letting the bitterness stand out as it builds with a nice floral hop taste. This one is great, flavors are a little more complex then the regular Latitude 48.
