Once again, I let these sit in my fridge since last July, expecting to do a grand YouTube comparison of all 6 at a time. It wasn’t to be. So I’ll strain myself into just doing two at a time. Tonight its Zeus and Hallertau. The Hallertau kicks up a robust head over bright copper beer. The bubbles pop away, releasing a fragrant hop aroma that seems more American now. A few more minutes, and it shows a bit of peppery German hop, as in "normal" beer smell. Taste starts with a nice malt texture, and a separate thread of hop bitterness on the top of the tongue. Despite the noble hops, it has a definite APA character, aided no doubt by the darker malt bill. Hop bitterness settles to the soft palate in back of my mouth. These two left a much better impression than the EKG and Simcoe versions I’d tried before.

Not a favorite. Enjoy the effort w/ the single hop, but doesn't pay off for my taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The Sampler, Bushwick tap: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is light and grassy, with hints of lemon and conifers. Taste is lightly bitter. The hoppiness is not particularly fruity. Using German hops, one would not guess this to be an IPA at first sip.

12 oz bottle served in a pint glass (from Jan. 2012 notes). Appearance: a beautiful clear orange-amber in color with a good head that lasted a long time. Light carbonation visible. Good amount of lacing on the glass. Smell: More floral than the standard Latitude IPA as well as at least some of the other deconstructed versions. Aroma is also rather subtle. Taste: unusual and rather pronounced rose-petal flavor! Otherwise, as expected from this brewer, no brewing flaws, but the flavor is a bit floral for my taste. Mouthfeel: medium bodied and smooth; soft for style yet with some crispness; slightly dry finish. Overall: As a fan of standard Latitude 48, I was surprised to like most of the single-hop versions nearly as much. That said, this is not my favorite of these. Like the others, it lacks some of the complexity of the ’regular’ version, but this one also lacks the hop-forward character and aroma. Hop-wise, it is more of an APA than IPA. Still, an interesting and pleasant beer that provides the sensory experience derived from a single hop variety.

Orange amber body with a minimal white head. A lot of hop aromas are present such as pine and fresh cut grass. I didn’t get any citrus or grapefruit on the nose. For a beer which is meant to display a hop this beer this is quite balanced with a subtle caramel flavour coming from the malt. The hop presence is much more noticeable in the aromas than it is in the perceived bitterness on the palate.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2014
This has the same nice look as the others in the series, a light caramel body capped by a creamy head. The4 aroma is fairly light, zest, a bit of pine, some grainy sweetness. The flavor is much the same, although the balance tips top the hops. The bitterness level is moderate yet sturdy. The finish is nicely dry with a resinous bitterness remaining in the mouth. Pretty good.

Pours a clear copper color. Aroma of flowers with a touch of sour citrus. Taste is balanced and offset nicely with a delicate peppery hop note followed by a tart note blended with a dry crisp finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
