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.

Tasted on 1/16/11 from a 12oz bottle at Lush West Town. Pours clear orange-amber with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to leaving fairly thick and spotty lace. The nose is a great blend of bread and caramel malt along with grapefruit and pine resin hops. The flavor is more bitter than anything else, showcasing the resin and grapefruit hops with the lighter flavor of the malt backing everything up. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long bitter grapefruit finish.

Sample Courtesy of Oren at the 1st Israeli Beer Exhibition in Tel Aviv. Pours deep golden with a small beige head, aroma of peach, pineapple, marmalade, honey and malt, flavor is hoppy and dry with some grapefruit peel and grapefruit medium to full body, nice one.

Citrusy aroma with the usual florals showing through. Flavor was suprisingly good. Pine hop bite with some residual bitterness lingering on the palate. I liked this a lot, i could very well finish a sixer of this.

cheap (5209) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Darker than pale lager but lighter than american dark lager. Smells sharply blasting IPA, almost knocked me off my feet. Some CO2 but is well hidden because of the initial boom of IPA impact on the tongue. Who put pine handsoap into my glass, wew. Somebody forgot to rinse the soap out of this mug before I used it. Massively on IIPA style. Long bitter medicinal finish and linger. If you love IPA, subtract my number from 5 and this is how you would rate it.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2011
(Sample Date: 5/22/2010 Source:Other) Fruity citrusy floral mix of hop aromas. Clear golden with small white head. Flavor follows aroma with what appears to be lots of late hop additions. Medium finish with moderate residual bitterness.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Beautiful-looking beer, with a long-lasting head and a bright copper hue. Medium-bodied texture. Fairly easy to drink. Subtle notes of toasted bread and nuts, along with a mild sweetness reminiscent of Hawaiian bread. Has a snappy-sharp bitterness that’s grassy and vine-like, and it lingers well into the aftertaste. It has a curious, dare I say odd, hop profile, but it’s not bad, and it’s definitely worth a try.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Pours a copper gold with a medium sized light tan head that mostly dissipates. Nose is hops with a malt note. Taste is hops with a nice, creamy texture. Finish is a balance profile of malt and hops. Very pleasant brew with hops from the 48th latitude. Pairs well with snacks, especially tortilla chips.

12 oz bottle. Pours copper with a long lasting off-white, head and a lot of lacing. Nice aroma is of bready malt and citrusy hops. Light-medium, tangy body. Taste is very hoppy, citrusy with a good malty background. Long, bitter finish. Good, I think, underrated IPA.

3fourths (9055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2011
bottle. clear amber, off-white head, little retention. nose of bran and a caramel with sweaty/pine tar hops and vitamin b. syrupy up front, bitter and chalky in the finish. sweaty orange flavored caramel malt has a harsh edge and the vitamin b yeast in the finish is especially unpleasant. dirty and gross.

This beer has a strong vanilla and chocalate aroma. Has a nice orange red color with a average head and good lacing. This is a medium-bodied beer that starts bitter and finishes sweet. Overall this is a smooth IPA and would recommend to anyone.
