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!

ben4321 (3807) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Giannone, 5/10/13

Aroma: The nose has herbal, pine, and citrus hops, caramel, and toasted bread
Appearance: It pours reddish-orange color with a beige head and heavy, coating lace
Flavor: Tastes lightly sweet, with a bit of fruity flavors, a nice malty presence, and a clean hop finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has average carbonation, and a clean, dry finish on the mouth
Overall Impression: This is a really solid IPA for sure. It’s not an absolutely standout, but it absolutely hit my expectations (and then some). Personally, I enjoyed this one more than the previous recipe.

Copper, clear, persistent white head. Aroma of honey-sweet malt with some toast, big hop aroma bright and lemony with sweet, fruity tangerine, a little spruce. Flavor is very similar with a little caramel sweetness and fruity, citrusy hops, a little lingering bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SPDickerman (918) - 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 (2594) - 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 (3298) - 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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a large off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of herbal and floral hops with a bit of a tropical note and some pale caramel malts. The taste is floral, herbal, citrus and tropical hops with pale caramel malts. Medium bodied.

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