COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Latitude 48 Zeus IPA is brewed with only Zeus hops from the Yakima Valley area of WA. The hops are added at three points during the brewing process -- bittering, late kettle and dry hopping. Zeus Hops contribute bitterness and an intense, pungent resinous pine flavor. This brew leans strongly toward the hop character, but is softened by the malt’s sweetness.

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Carefully poured into my fancy Sam Adams glass (now, sadly shattered), this has a bright caramel body with a t5hick, dense, and sustained creamy head. It’s got an aroma of fir (no, not "fur") with a hint of grain. It tastes of pine, cereal, and a soft bitterness. The finish is dry and resinous. Not bad.

degbert (1194) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark gold-amber with orange highlights. High, lacy, large-grained head. Nose is light -- not much spice or pine notes; if anything, it’s an odd mix of floral and cheddar cheese notes. Hops are muted on the tongue; there’s an orange candy overtone, a touch of spruce and sage, and a lot of malt sweetness. I think this hops doesn’t play well by itself; too much Orange Crush in the end. Interesting for the experience, but not much else.

BeerandBlues2 (10065) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is spicy, earthy and resin hops with cracker and biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, sweet malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

muleassadam (3) - Cheektowaga, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2014 does not count
By far my favorite American Hops. This beer is a great IPA to introduce a newcomer to the IPA world. It has a moderate hoppy beginning and a pleasant finish. Not much to mention about uniqueness but tasty drink non the less.

"nice bite to this one. fairly bright and aromatic hops. pine, a little spice, and still pretty good malt balance. another i like better than the regular L48, though it may not have been fresh...we’ll see w/the one from this pack."

A little lacking on the nose. I did get the pine and resin coming through I understand how this fits into a brew but did not like for a single hop. Very one dimensional on the bitter profile ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
