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.

Pours copper/amber with a medium sized head. Aroma is lovely with a lot of floral hops. Medium in body with a good amount of carbonation. Flavor is a bit mild for an IPA, but there are enough hops to make it worth while. Better than most of the Sam brews out there.

vyvvy (4730) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Pours clear amber / bronze with a dense soapy beige head. The aroma has bready toasty malt, some dry caramel, earthy hops, some sweetness, light soap and a British slant to it. Medium body with a bit of roughness and lots of flowing carbonation. The taste begins fairly dry with lots of earthiness to it. It is quite woody as well with some toasty malt that is on the tree bark side. The finish has more bark and pine cones along with harsh hoppiness. Okay IPA.

Bottle enjoyed at Uncle Marios.. byob. A bit underrated.. strong hop character for a single ipa. Very pronouced and somewhat aggressive. Great IPA.

Bottle. Solid but very simple. Not too much hop variety/complexity, but still pleasant and bitter. At its price though ($8/6pack) I will probably revisit this one.

Surprisingly good ipa. It gushed from the bottle. Thick, lacing head. good hop aroma immediately. Dry hops in the flavor, balanced by sweet malt and bread. Grapefruit aftertaste.

[Bottle] Pours a light amber color with a small amount of dense white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. The taste is moderately hoppy, with some spruce and lemon zest. A bit sticky and syrupy in the finish. Average mouthfeel and pretty well balanced. Not too bad, but pretty standard.
