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.

The body is deep copper orange with a yellowish khaki head. The nose has some sweet caramel and grapefruit. There is also some peanut. The taste has some strong grapefruit and that crystal malt character. There is some slightly burnt toast and apples. This is nicely made.

Clear red tinged amber with 2 finger off white head. sparse lacing. Smells are very mild, some citrus, yeasts, bread, mild sweet malt notes. Taste is Earthy hops up front with nice bite then mild sweet malt notes and some grains. Lite to medium body, medium zesty carbonation with decent hop bite and dry finish, mild to medium alcohol warmth. A good hop offering from SA that I’m glad I tried. Good Job!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Bottle
Pours a dense, glassy amber with a nose of delicate flowers, hops, and a touch of orange honey. A nice head of off-white sits atop the brewsky. Flavor is a nice blend of hops (bitter grapefruit, orange, pine), floral (rose and wild flowers), and honey. Average mouthfeel. A great, approachable IPA. Sam Adams is a great brewer, no matter how you slice it.

Nimrod979 (206) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Beautiful clear amber color with a nice white head that linger and laces the glass nicely. Mild floral, citrus hops aroma. Hint of bready malt. Taste is a medium sweetness with a mild hoppy bitterness. A little too sweet. Not overwhelming. Balanced. Very smooth on the palate very drinkable. Quick finish.Pretty good offering from Sam Adams even if it isn’t as hoppy as most IPA’s.

jcr (2278) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle. Amber body, clear. Off-white, frothy head. The aroma has notes of caramel, bread, toasted grain, flowers, herbs, dough and leaves along with a note of resin. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes moderately bitter and lightly sweet. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. A change from many American IPAs in that it is more subtle with its hop flavors. The English hops are particularly noticable. The malts take a backseat to the hops, but that’s OK because of the hops’ subtlety. Enjoyable beer. Nicely balanced.

bozoNZ (731) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 27, 2010
Murky orange, great head retention. Grapefruit / marmalade nose which is quite rich. Nice rich palate but the hopping is a bit over the show. Nice quite traditional IPA and norf APA either. Drinkable but would question where it really fits.
