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.

More of a perfume aroma than the simcoe. More pine and less grapefruit. More subdued that the deconstructed simcoe.

TomDecapolis (4604) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a medium creamy bubbly off white head. Aroma pine resin, grapefruit and caramel. Flavor showcases the piney hops. Never had Zeus alone like this. Know this hop better now.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Pours slightly hazy reddish orange with nice fluffy, lacing white head. Aroma has notes of garlic, some resin, earth, spice, and a touch of lemon. Taste is resinous and slightly piny, with lemon, earthy tones. Definitely an interesting and complex hop. First out of the 5.

The aroma is earth, pitch pine, resin, some caramel. The appearance is clear amber, white head. The flavor is caramel, pitch pine, resin. Medium in body, little oily. The finish is astringent, enduring resin hops. Some metal, some earth as well. Enjoyable overall.

Bottle courtesy Dixonian. Pours a clear orange color with a light ring of white bubbly head. Aroma is floral and perfume. Flavor is earthy hops and roots.

pacond (187) - Muncie, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2011
An example of these american hops to the latitude beers. But a bit spicy and earthy. Enjoyable, fresh and a recognizable malt profile.

Appears a very dark copper color with a bubbly off-white head. The nose is of floral and piney scents and a mild sweetness. The taste starts out sweet, mild breadiness, and then quickly moves on to a nice bitter finish with piney flavors here as well. Mouthfeel is just average. Medium bodied with medium carbonation leves. Overall, a good IPA that goes down easy. Best of the deconstructions I’ve had this far.

deyholla (7587) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with an off white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces nicely. Aroma has a strong pine note with a good amount of resin and a hint of a spicy garlic note. Flavor starts with a strong pine note that lasts throughout the beer with really not much else to speak of.

drfabulous (4511) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 21, 2011
12 ounce from the 12 pack box. Last of the bunch for me. Tastes about the same as the rest. Same malt profile. Lightly hopped to the point of not being distinct. Uneventful.

LinusStick (2939) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Middle of the road for the series. Aroma was weak. Light stale hoppiness with a grassiness to it. Pour was a nice deep amber with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was a little lacking in the front. Hints of caramel and toffee in the front with not much else. The hoppy earthy bitterness comes well after the swallow. A few seconds after it goes down a strong pungent bitterness comes over the mouth. It borders sour. Nice carbonation round the beer out. Very weird how the hops take so long to show themselves, but very cool and unique.
