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!

SPDickerman (881) - Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pours orange copper with a small white head. Smells of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is bitter, lightly fruity, and light on the citrus with a solid sweet malt backbone. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams Latitude 48 Mosaic IPA finishes with a soft, gentle bitterness.

jake65 (2534) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle: Bright copper color, modest beige head. Nice aroma of citrus and pine, lightly sweet, but potent with hops. Taste is good, but the maltiness subdues the hop whallop I anticipated from the aroma. Overall a solid offering.

alexanderj (3268) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle; poured a nice, slightly dark orange color with a small to medium off white head. Aroma of earth, fruit, citrus, and caramel; definitely a NW aroma. Flavor was smooth and quite drinkable, showing a nice balance and complexity. The NW hop flavor profile shines through, with some balancing notes of caramel and a touch of toffee. Finish is nice and long. Very nice.

Had this at our second annual Easter Beer Hunt. I really liked the flavors. Very similar to Yazoo Hop Project.

Pours a medium dark amber with a medium white head. Smells of hops and a citrus. Tastes malty with slight sweetness and citrus. Slight bitterness but blends into nice aftertaste on palate. Drank 4-5 and will do so again!!

unclemattie (4035) - Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2013
12oz bottle, 2013 IPA Hopology Mixed 12pk. Deep copper color, off-white colored ring. Smells of toasted grains, caramel malts, and fresh brewed hops aromas. The nose of this beer reminds me of the smells of the Rogue brewery the very first time I walked into the building! Scents of salt air and hops, with steamed malt powder. Yum. Very nice smell of Pacific Northwest hops. Tastes of toasted malt, caramel, bread, toast, cereal, resin, herbs, lemon zest, dough, and leather. This beer really has a few different layers going on. Tastes like an all American IPA with huge toasted malt dominating the beer, followed by big hop bitterness. Leather character overwhelms the palate. I really like this beer, it really reminds me of Oregon. (3659)

brokensail (9940) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Light amber pour with a white head. Floral and citrus peel aroma. Notes of lemon, biscuit malt, and a bit of Fruity Pebbles. Very light pine aroma. The flavor is a bit sweeter than I’d like. Biscuit and bread, Fruity Pebbles, and sweet citrus. Floral, lemon zest, and light pine hop flavors. Very light bitterness.

BeerandBlues2 (9094) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle from sonnycheeba. Pours clear amber with a large, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is grassy, herbal, spicy, and minty hops with biscuit and meal malt and light pear fruity esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting malt, clean with no fermentation derived fruity esters, hop dominant with a dry and spicy finish. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, no warmth, creaminess, or astringency.
