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.

12oz bottle pours crystal clear copper with semi loose tan head leaving spotty lacing behind. The modest aroma is a bit spicy, a bit floral and a bit malty. The taste has pretty full spicy hops delivering both hop flavor and the growing hop bitterness to midway and then into the finish. I also get a bit of citrus and grassiness for moments here and there. It ends with fading bitter spicy hops that achieve really only a modest level of bitterness and then a thin layer of malts sweetness.

Finhead (1535) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2010
A clear amber pour with off-white head. The aroma is mildly hoppy, but also has a touch of caramel. It has a zesty, bitter taste with average carbonation and medium body. It ends with a mouth-watering, bitter finish.

dchmela (2971) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle at Epcot F&W. Pours a copper amber with a thick white head. Big hop nose, berries and citrus popping through. Taste is smooth malt with a nice hop bitterness that is really well balanced. Best Sam Adams I have had in a while.

BroSpud (2008) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 3, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2011 Sample at Julio’s NE Beer Festival. Not all that impressed with this one. I would have figured that Sam could do better. Still, it is an IPA and that’s not all bad. 5/22/11 - Upping the rating slightly after another taste

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Clear copper-amber pour into thick pillowy off-white head that quickly dissipates into sticky lacing that melts into a thin ring layer of foam as carbonated bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of piney hoppy spruce, toasted malt and sweet biscuits. Initial flavor or malt and bisuit that fades into bitter hoppy finish.

portableparty (2263) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2010
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.

Arayaga2 (2049) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2010
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

swenocha (81) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2010
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).
