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.

JohnnyJ (4786) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Clear amber pour, thin white head. Nice aroma of caramel, floral hops, almost tropical, and citrus. Flavor is a little more bland, not a fruity in the flavor, more malty, with some bread.

pineypower (2667) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Pours out a moderate copper color with a big white head. Aroma is rather weak with some light hop spice and some grain. Taste is light citrus and spicy hop notes with some grain in there as well. Not a bad IPA, but nothing really made this stand out.

Nephilium (1463) - Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Nice mild hop aroma, just a bit of malt backbone there. Pours a clear amber, with a thin white head. There’s a bit of bitterness here, but this is not a big hop monster. Very drinkable, and approachable for a novice to get into the different classes of beer. Reasonably priced, and solidly drinkable.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Bottle. Poured a dark amber color with a small white head. Left some lacing on the glass as it went. Aroma was grapefruit, grass, and pine. Flavor was spruce, floral and pine. Weaker for an IPA. More like a pale ale. Still very drinkable. Very balanced IPA. Mild bitter aftertaste.

ExpendableHero (770) - Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Rich amber colored brew with an off-white head. Not surprised to smell freshly cut grass here. Tastes of pine and spruce, fresh cut grass, and floral/herbal hops. A bit too bitter in the end for me. Decent for the style.

lb4lb (2570) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Pours clear amber. Smell is hoppy and biscuity. Kind of a hoppy toffee flavor. Not my preferred style of IPA but still a quality beer, and good fresh. Darker malt flavor than I prefer although the hops are there. Decent.

SamP01 (611) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Pours a deep clear amber with a small offwhite head. Aroma of earthy hops, some sweet malts. Taste is earthy hops with some sweet caramel malts. Palate is med body, good carbonation. Finish is bitter earthy piney hops followed by a good amount of sweet caramel malts, not overly hopped. Overall an interesting and unique blend of hops and sweet malts. A nice drinkable brew Brit IPA.

sickboy79 (66) - USA - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle. I good solid IPA. One of the best Sam beers in a while. It has a nice full flavor. Front end is very floral and citrus and with nice hoppy bite on the finish, with a touch of carmel flavor from the malt. Very solid. I prefer this over the standard Sam Adams Pale Ale. I would buy it again.

dagimp (788) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2010
From a 12oz into a pint glass. Pours a copper clear gold. One inch of head and a lot of lacing. Thin film on the beer never really disappears. Aroma of floral and piney hops. Mouthfeel is moderate, not sticky and full of carbonation...a little too full. Taste is of floral hops primarily, other flavors of pine, resin, well I guess that’s about it. A good British style IPA with a solid malt backbone and not too overbearing hops. Very drinkable and it won’t destroy your palate. It’s actually one of the better Sammies that I’ve had.
