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.

Pour is clear copper with a creamy off white head that dissipates to a film. Aroma is a mixture of malt and hops which come off sweet. Taste is metallic and malty hops, but nothing that stands out. Palate is good carbonation and sticky with a dry finish. A so so IPA that is not bad, but will be bunched together with no real stand out characteristics.

Effervescent lemon / lime hop aroma, with some spice to it. Taste is the same and pithy, but still rather bright. Odd minerality in taste. $2/12oz

Aroma is sweet malt and grassy hop. pour is orange with a solid white head that laces nicely. Flavor is complex mix of a solid malt backbone mixed with bitter and earthy hops. Another solid offering from Sammy...

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Sweet, malty aroma. Appearance is likened to an Oktoberfest Maerzen, but it is much hoppier and leaves a more bitter aftertaste, of course. The aftertaste is the least favorite thing of mine about this beer. It looks good and tastes good, but the hops are really an acquired taste I think. Not too shabby, but not for people that hate hops (like my wife).

I picked this up as a single bottle (didn’t want to try a full six pack right away) from Archer Liquors in Chicago, IL. Enjoyed prior to the Bears / Packers game. Pretty interesting for an IPA, probably the most malty I’ve had for the style. Aroma not really present, very faint malt backing, perhaps the "un-smelliest’ IPA I’ve had yet. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin but frothy head. Taste is very smooth, fantastic mouthfeel that starts off with a higher balance of malt than hops but finishes rather bitter. Pretty good standard IPA, a definite gateway beer for those not familiar with the style.

Had at a neighbors house and was pleasantly surprised. Poured a slightly hazy amber brown with minimal manilla head. Aroma is bit of toasted malts, slight mixture of pine and floral hops. Flavor has decent mouthfeel, earthy malt base, and good amount of bitter hop finish. Overall, worth a try.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Pours clear amber orange with a frothy beige head that fades. Aroma of light pine, citrus and some mint. Taste does not have too much bitterness or sweetness, well balanced but kind of bland. Still a pretty good beer, just not the best IPA...... Was really cool to try this after having the single hop varieties all side by side. Made me appreciate it more.

12oz bottle. Poured a medium orange color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of some earthiness, floral and grainy. Tastes of citrus, caramel, toast, and lighter earthy.

Starts okay but finishes poorly, with a flat, unpleasant aftertaste. Very little about this beer says "IPA." The expected bitterness is muted by malts and grains. I won’t be drinking this one again.

12 oz bottle from Canals Rio Grande. Absolutely no aroma on this at all. Not offensive but its like smelling a glass of water. Despite the a nice looking amber body sits underneath a large foamy off white head. Smooth palate that is almostcreamy. Flavor has some notes of citrus rind and crusty bread. Okay at best.
