COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our new 2013 release features Mosaic hops, a new hop from the Pacific Northwest. They add a burst of citrus notes to the distinctive layers of German, English and other American hops, all from growing regions near the "hop belt" of the 48th Latitude. Cheers!

Pours dark amber with a whitehead. Mild hoppy taste with a pineapple finish. In fact the sweet pineapple flavor stays with you as you breathe in. This is almost a dark shandy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nice amber color with a massive off-white amber tinged head. The head has fantastic retention and last a very long time, with it eventually fading leaving a wonderful level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The smell is quite heavy of a tropical fruity nature with lots of mango. tangerine and papaya there. Along with the tropical fruits comes some lighter bready and caramel smells as well as a little bit of a floral and pine aroma. Overall the aroma is quite pleasant and smooth. Taste – The taste begins with a sweet caramel and bready flavor with a good deal of tangerine. Along with these flavors comes a little bit of a grapefruit hop upfront. As the flavor advances, more and amore breadiness comes to the tongue along with some other tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and mango. Other hop flavors of a floral and grassy nature also join the tongue, but with these remaining rather light. While the floral and grassy that join remain rather light, a pine hop taste which joins the taste at the end, actually gets somewhat stronger, and mixes with the sweeter and maltier flavors of the brew to leave a nice smoothly hopped, sweet, and malty flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is above average in its thickness with a carbonation level that is average. The thicker body and average carbonation create a nice base for the mix of sweet and hop and create a rather easy drinking, malty, and sweet IPA. Overall – Quite a tasty IPA. About as good as the original latitude 48 (maybe just a touch below the original), While I am kind of partial to mosaic hops and would highly recommend this brew, it may not be quite as balanced as the original, but even said it is very easy drinking and delicious overall.

Another good ipa from Sam Adams. The aroma is kind of classically grapefruit, but the taste is distinctive, sweeter, maybe tangerine.

Luvystypotables (618) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Very weak aroma of hops with a trace of citrus. Clear caramel color no head. Amazing taste of fruit, slightly sweet with a chalky feel, an apricot finish with a trace of bitterness.

RedSox2004 (1234) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Deep amber, almost brown, with a fluffy bright white head, nice retention and lace. Strong grapefruit and pine hops on the nose with a bit of pepper. Crisp bitterness dominates the flavor, with notes of honey and caramel for balance. Medium body, creamy stickiness on the palate, lively carbonation, and a super clean finish.
