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.

"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

Bottle. The look is clear, bronze color, and an off white head. The smell is florals, pine, resin, dank, nice. The taste is pine, resin, harsher, but good.

12 oz bottle. Amber in color with an average off-white head. Aroma is of pine, dank hops, resin, malt, and grass. Taste is of resin, pine, earth, pepper, and florals.

This is my 3rd deconstructed version and it’s the best. Finally some citrus hops along with some pine. Still just an average IPA though.

Hazy dark amber color with creamy head. Dry, caramelly, with vegetable notes, some hop resins, but not much hop quality. Not convincing.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of October 2014. The pour is copper-orange with a long lasting puffy off-white head. The hop nose is earthy and spicy with a touch of roasted malts. Medium to better than medium body. The hops seem easier to find in the flavor as they jump out at me more. Lingering bitter finish.

Just another SA...good stuff but SA with different hops. Has no aroma like RR or Stone...but non the less good drinking beer but there are better crafts out there.

Honey-orange with a decent slush of head on top. Hops are piney but also a little herbal. The bready, caramel malts are a nice balance in the nose. This one is not a hop bomb. Touch of mineral/wet rock. The flavor is very well-balanced: there is mineral malts, topped with a pleasant, grassy hop character. Has a chunky feel that is very fitting with the moss-like complexities of this one. This one is the best of the sixer so far, I wonder if that’s why they put it last.

Bottle:   Moderate to light bitterness.   Very soft pith and peel.   Very chewy.   Moderate bitterness, bit a bit boring.   Seems to bring just bitterness.   Looks good, chewy, but fairly simple.   Needs some sweet fruitiness.   I can understand now the 5 components of Latitude 48.
