COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams® Latitude 48 IPA is a unique IPA brewed with a select blend of hops from top German, English, and American growing regions all located close to the 48th latitude within the “hop belt” of the Northern Hemisphere. The combination of hops in this beer creates a distinctive but not overpowering hop character. The beer is dry hopped with Ahtanum, Simcoe®*, and East Kent Goldings hops for a powerful citrus and earthy aroma. The hop character is balanced by a slight sweetness and full body from the malt blend.

Glowing dark orange color/ frothy beige head. Nice pine, spicy hop aromas with some caramel. medium bodied. Good spicy, floral hop flavors on a solid caramel malty base, nicely bitter finish. everyday ipa here.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2010
bottle thanks to swalden28. probably one of my least favorite SA beers to date. poured a nice deep amber/copper with a white head. aroma was caramel malt and some slight pine resin. flavor was strong malt and lots of hop spice. i don’t feel that the spicy hops really worked well with this brew.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2010
The pour is a sparkling clear, dark amber color with a moderately full, pillowy, off-white head which is somewhat lasting and leaves soapy lace. The nose is surprisingly not bad with pink grapefruit, light hops spice, floral tones, tangerine peel, and faint biscuity notes. The flavor seems less American hop-like, in lieu of the German noble and English hops; dried floral, spicy hops, faint pink grapefruit, sweet biscuits, and just a bit of grassy notes near the back end. The palate is medium, lively, sticky, and velvety. The finish is still lightly sweet with similar biscuity notes, pink grapefruit, still spicy, and grassy. This was much better than I thought it would be coming from BBC, but the American hop notes were prominent enough to make a decent IPA with a medium bitterness.

kidmartinek (3623) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Clear amber with nice bubbles. Large off-white head stays ’til your done. balanced bitter hop and malty aroma. Flavor starts bitter and hoppy and finishes bitter and malty. Absolutely delicious. Heavy lace, superb drinkability and a go-to IPA.

zathrus13 (1713) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours orange/amber with an off white head. Aroma is hops and caramel. Flavor is hops, malt, caramel, and spices. Medium body, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

sloth (2464) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Medium sized offwhite head, excellent retention and a good lace. Clear amber color. Earthy hops in the nose, faint citrus, grainy with a light mustyness. Body is medium, nice carbonation, bit minerally, thin on the palate. Dry malt flavors, little caramel, light citrus, more minerally notes, getting more astringent. Dry, astringent finish, metallic, lingering, not good, last sip was tough, errrr. 12 oz. Bottle procured @statelineliquors

rcasta (832) - EL SALVADOR - NOV 3, 2010
probablemente la mejor de todo el dia. muy europea en su estilo pero demasiado hops para ser del viejo mundo

hopscotch (9059) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Bottle… Clear, deep amber ale with copper highlights and a small, wispy, lightly tanned head. Good retention. The bouquet presents toasted grains and spicy hops. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor offers spicy, peppery, grassy hop bitterness and a pinch of biscuit malt. Short, crisp, moderately bitter finish.

ljstephenson (249) - Enterprise, Alabama, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Clear copper pour with a thin disappearing head. Aroma is strong with pine and grapefruit. Taste is moderate bitter and soft mouthfeel...slight citrus and grass. Finish is dry and bitter. A different take on IPA, it doesn’t appear that Sam Adams put much creativity into this beer. It leans more toward an ESB.
