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.

12 oz bottle pour, backyard acquisition. pours a clear darkish amber with large bubbled off white head with good sticky lace. Aroma is of sweet toasty malts with some nice citrus undertones. Hmm....this is an IPA? very sweet and malty with more undertones of bittering hops but not the citrus from the nose. Does have some nice bitter but still does not pan out as an IPA to me. smooth creamy mouthfeel with a short slightly dry finish. Summed: Decent beer but a little heavier on the malt side. Good but not my opinion of an IPA.

Served from bottle into a Samuel Smith imperial pint. Pours a deep red-orange with a one-finger white head that lingers throughout. It maintains nice lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of only a slight hint of hops and nothing else that I could pick up on. The flavor was a light malt with a small amount of hops. It was light on the palate and had medium carbonation. Overall this was not my favorite bew from Samuel Adams. I was expecting more when I first saw this ’new’ IPA, but was let down. However it is still a nice brew, just not what I expected. It could be improved if there was more of a hoppy flavor to it though.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear deeper orange with a nice cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet toffee and caramel notes spiced up by dry floral and earthy hoppage.. malty overall, with with very complementary hops.. well balanced. The flavor found caramel, toffee, and a touch of molasses at the core.. more bitterness than the nose indicated, sporting earthy, floral, and sprucey notes.. finished spicy and quite bitter, with residual sugars. Medium-bodied and sweet overall on the palate.. spicy and well-balanced.. tasty stuff!

nearbeer (3424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2011 12 oz. Clear, deep copper with a creamy lasting quarter-inch of bubbles. Aroma of forest-floor leaves and wood, toffee, peppery citrus, and cabbage. Near-medium body is creamy smooth and sweetish, with a dry, leafy-woody finish. Flavor is fruity caramel, light cocoa and orange, with a slightly dry finish of wood, nut shell, and earthy tea leaf. Very nice and love the earthy hops.

Braudog (5485) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle. Copper-bronze with a thick frothy head. Nice restrained hoppy aroma. Drinks with a nice tight bitterness, not too bullying though like some American IPAs can be. There’s a big solid malt foundation to this too. Delicious. (#3912, 5/23/2010)

Samuel Adams... never a bad decision. Pours a dark amber with a tan head. Aroma is a floral and pine hops. Flavor reminds me more of a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Good hop character with grassy hops. Slight amount of citrus mixed in, and fairly bitter. Not quite what I expect from an IPA as it doesn’t seem to have the hops needed or the citrus character. I could drink this all afternoon.

Leighton (9830) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle. A pretty good IPA. Pours dark copper with a medium white head. Nose holds some earthy, floral hops and light malts. Mildly sweet in the flavor’s front, then quickly becomes bitter. A pretty pungent, earthy bitterness, very East Coast/English in style. Medium body with average carbonation. Finish is medium length and bitter. I’d say one of the better Sam Adams beers I’ve had.

Copper, ruby highlighted pour with a fast dissipating light beige head. Hop and malt aroma. Well balanced flavor, initial hop flavor and bitterness followed by a nice buttered biscuit malt. A good but forgettable ipa.
