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.

Poured a clear copper amber with about a 1" creamy light beige head. There were some carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. There was a nice floral aroma and some malty sweet bread scent as well. There was a mild hop bitterness up front that lingered, mellowing in the middle to more of a roasted caramel malt flavor. There is a transistion from the malt to a pine flavor as the hops returns even stronger on the finish and lasts well into the finish. This is a predominately hops brew, but the good malt balance amkes this an easy drinking IPA. This came in the summer variety pack, but it would be nice to be able to get this in a 6er, 12 pack or case.

8/6/10 Sam Adams Summer Mix Pack. Copper color with strong hoppy flavor. Decent head that diminishes over time and nice finish. Would be nice to find in a sixer. Definitely recommend for easy drinking IPA.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2010
12 ounce bottle from the summer sampler. Pours a hazy copper color with a large tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of big malts and fruity hop notes including tropical fruits, citrus, stone fruits. The taste is earthy resiny hops with a leafy finish, and caramel malts. Medium bodied. Fairly well balanced and quite nice.

bhensonb (11255) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Bottle in a multi-box from a discount grocery store. Pours ruddy copper with a foamy beige 3 finger head. Aromas of resin and mild earth. Quite pleasant. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is light sweet caramel with a herby/earthy hop bitter. Could be some evergreen hiding in there. With time it seems a bit grassy. Smells good. Tastes good. Wouldn’t hesitate to grab another.

DarkSong (292) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish amber color with a small off white long lasting head. It has a wonderfully complex hop aroma. It has a complex hop taste. I taste pine,resin and grass with a bread like taste from the malt. I really like the bitterness and don’t miss the typical grapefruit flavor at all. I really enjoyed this beer and will try to drink it in the future.

~Up front aroma of spicy, earthy and resiny hop balanced with caramel malts and possibly chocolate in background. Well balanced and enjoyable ~Pours a clear reddish amber color with lasting creamy white head with good lacing. ~Up front caramelly maltiness quickly overrun with woody, spicy, musky hops. A bit sweet for my liking. ~Med full body with med low CO2, woody spicy finish that lingers. ~Enjoyable IPA. Just a bit too cloying sweet for me. I did enjoy the hop choice. Getting tired of the citrusy hops.

This was a pretty awesome IPA that has a very solid malt background. So, you will drink this beer and it will not come across as overly bitter, a good entry level IPA, but solid none-the-less. Nice.

Pours a amber bronze with a nice medium beige head and decent lacing. Aroma has some bittering hops, grapefruit, and there are some bread notes in there as well. There is a very sweet, caramel malt flavor, and the hops mildly bitter. The finish is clean with a mild bitter after taste.

Pershing (477) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Dark amber with a frothy head that lingers around. Some noticeable lacing before the head subsides. Heavy malt and hop aroma. sweet hoppy taste that stays between sips. A very filling IPA. Not bad at all.
