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.

Bottle. Poured a deep copper with a large off-white frothy head that lasted and produced good lacing. Good earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced bitter flavor with a moderate smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

Pours amber with a hint of red. The white foamy white head clings to the glass. The aroma is very subtle floral and citrus hops. Sweet malt, caramel, toffee, and grapefruit notes. The flavor starts out sweet then finishes bitter. Medium body and carbonation. I liked the appearance of this beer, the color, clarity, and the way the head laced the glass. However, I felt this beer was overly sweet and the hop bitterness was a little too muted. Not a bad beer, but it tasted more like an amber ale than an IPA.

brew4fun (209) - West Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Deep reddish copper pour, short but lasting creamy head. Nice lacing. Aroma of light roast malt, earthy/woody/floral hops. Signifiicant bitterness, well rounded and ultimately pleasant. Malt sweetness well balanced. Medium body, light carbonation, Full mouthfeel. Lingering malty finish polished by wspy hop bitterness. A really different IPA, in a very good and interesting way. Look forward to 6-pack packaging at summer’s end. Must buy again!!

Very nice IPA from Sam Adams! This delicious beer poured a dark golden color with a generous and sticky off-white head. The aroma is full of spicy hops, but balanced well with a yeasty and bready malt tone. The body is fairly thick, but contains some lots of spicy hops. The flavors also have some bread, light toffee, roasted malt, earth, grapefruit and pine notes. The finish again is very spicy and dry.

thornecb (4162) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. Off-white conglomerate head with good retention recedes to skim surface leaving trailing sheets. Dark caramel and resin aromas. Thick and full upfront with dark caramel turning to sharp resin in the middle and a lasting grapefruit finish. Bigger use of hops than normal for a Sam with good balance.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Perfect pour, amberish with huge rocky head. Aroma is malt forward, biscuit and maris otter if I had to guess, hop character not as big as you would expect. Flavor much the same. Very clean. English style IPA, if your a huge hophead, not your thing.

BanjoDude (57) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Very nice brew. The smell is very pungent of hop aroma. Pours a nice deep amber with a small disappearing off-white head that leaves minimal lacing. The taste is very good, with a nice balance of malts and hops. Nice mouthfeel with a great crisp finish. Good IPA. 3.5

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2011 Pours a barley wine-like ruby-amber with a small off white head that leaves lots of lacing. The aroma is hoppy, with a lot of peppery and citrus notes. There is also a lot of caramel and toffee from the malt. Sweet flavor upfront turns to strong bitterness with citrus and floral notes.
