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.

Bottle; poured a rich orange-amber color with an off white and persistent head. Aroma of nw hops; fruit, spice, earth and caramel. Flavor was very nice. Earth, fruit, flowers, caramel, vanilla, and fruit. Probably their best offering

Clear yellow amber, sticky white head, great retention. Pronounced hoppy nose, mostly earthy, deep in character. Nice balance between citrus and pine, finishes dry with a bit of aspirin and spearmint.

12 ounce bottle from Chicken Chucks. Pours a clear copper hue with a medium white head. A sweet hop and biscuit nose, pine dominates. The flavor is good; huge pine, oranges, some bitterness, floral, light malts. Really nice. A good one.

12oz bottle from Chevy Chase in DC. Very nice appearance, deep clear amber color with a lasting one finger white head and good lacing. The aroma is decent, rough citrusy hops as well as some sweetish malt notes. The flavor had a caramel malt base along with a rough, unbalanced hop profile of orange and grapefruit. Decent palate, a little rough from the hops with medium body and average carbonation. Overall not really impressive, although I’ve had much worse.

Clear, copper pour. I hardly ever rate head appearance but this one aligns perfectly with the top of the pint glass and really makes the beer look appealing. Aroma is faint and hoppy, primarily floral. Flavor has a balanced malty flavor and probably a bit toward the higher ibu’s for an IPA. Citrus, floral, slighly sweet and the carbonation level really smoothes it out. Pretty solid ipa.

Amber color out of the bottle with a foamy off white head and attractive bubbles. Nicy hoppy aroma. Caramel sweet beer balanced with a ton of hop flavor. Grapefruit rind, apricots, and pine in the finish. Good beer and nice with a sandwich.

Orange-y gold in color, with a moderate head. Citrus notes and a piney flavor. Quite bitter. Pretty much what you’d expect from an IPA. Not bad.

Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA has a medium, beige head and a very clear amber appearance, with pretty high carbonation. A good amount of lacing is left down the glass. The aroma is quite hop heavy, and that is really the only smell that comes across. Taste is typical for an IPA, and there are no other discernible smells except for the piney hops. Mouth-feel is moderate, and Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA finishes refreshing and is easy drinking. Although it is a run-of-the-mill IPA, is it a good beer, and I would recommend giving it a try. RJT

6-pack of 12 oz. bottles from the local QFC. I was very excited about this beer, until I actually opened it. It had a nice and pungent aroma. It was slightly diacetyl. It did have a pleasing aroma of hops that reminded me, slightly, of pine. I thought this was going to have more of a citrus hop aroma, as others have stated, but for me, it was all pine. Not a bad texture. The malts balance a little too well with the hops, that is - I need an unbalanced beer that’s geared more towards hops. Pine hop aroma is interrupted by the imbalance of malts. Overall, this is a decent IPA, but Sam Adams could have done better than this. I agree with the soapy sentiment.
