4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
About as good as it gets from a bottle. Pleasant aroma. Beautiful reddish brown color. Full, hoppy flavor, without being overly astringent. Mildly sweet. Slightly lingering finish. Rich mouthfeel. Tastes richer and stronger than average beer, without being overly hoppy or having gratuitously high ABV.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This has more of a yeast aroma and a bigger hop taste then the regular Latitude 48. It also has more of a pleasant astringency, probably from the Mosaic hops. I’m not exactly doing back flips over this brew, but it is quite drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Moderate citrus hoppiness with a bready malt profile. Not bad for a ’can-get-anywhere’ type beer.

Clear reddish gold with a cm of white head. Aroma is bright citrus with minor vegetal notes. Taste is more firmly bitter than expected, with a firm pithy punch that is underpinned by nice biscuity malt.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best before June 2013.
Appearance: The body is a clear copper with fine carbonation bubbles in the body. The light tan head is short but dense with average retention. The head settles into a thin coating covering the top.
Aroma: Citrus is the strongest aroma here, but the aroma on the whole is a bit muted. This doesn’t smell bad, but I wish the hops had more presence.
Taste: The hops appear stronger here providing a moderate bitterness with a prominent citrus flavor with a touch of floral and spicy presence. The malt base balanced the hops nicely with hints of caramel. This is very enjoyable.
Palate: Medium bodied with a full texture, soft but plentiful carbonation.
Overall: If the aroma were a bit stronger I would like this a lot more. Even so, this is a more than acceptable IPA at this price range. This is worth buying a six pack of.
