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.

There is a balance of malts and hops in the aroma. The appearance is amber with a small white head. The flavor also of balanced malts and hops with slightly sweet malts and slow tones of hops at the end. There is a nice medium body and hops settle nice and slowly on the palate.

Pours a reddish amber with a foamy white head. Nice slightly sweet aroma of caramel malt and earthy, flowery hops. The hops definitely take center stage on the flavor, with floral hops immediately noticeable and some citrus coming through later. The malt isn’t completely lost in the flavor. Some caramel still shows through the hops. The finish is hoppy but not too bitter. Overall, one of my favorite offerings from Sam Adams.

12oz bottle. Dark copper with a lasting head. Doughy and floury aromawith some earthy hops. Doughy yeasty flavor with some citrus and woody hop flavors. Medium bodied and a little chewy. A predictably lame amber ale dressed up as an ipa.

Bottle from my Grandparents. They have a summer variety case and knew I’d want to try this and brought one with when they came to visit. Unfortunately for this beer, I had it directly after a 90 Minute, so it was always going to be at a disadvantage. That being said, this is a decent beer. Mellow, English-ish IPA that is certainly drinkable. Relatively tasteless following a 90 Minute but that was to be expected. All in all, a nice offering from a major brewery.

Family brought this up from North Dakota, part of the Brewmaster’s Collection. Very hoppy, aroma is very hoppy. Good amount of head that very slowly diminished. I find it tasty, a bit bitter, but a very respectable India Pale Ale, certainly not the hoppiest beer I’ve ever had, but that’s not a bad thing. Will buy again next time I’m in the US (or if Moosehead, their Canadian distributor, brings it to Canada).

bottle in the mixed sampler pack poured a somewhat red amber in color with a covering of off white head. aroma comes on with dry hops, citrus, grapefruit, sweet caramel malt, and some earth. mouth feel coats well and this is heavier than expected. flavor gets medium bitterness, barley wine level hops, a nicely malted base, and a contrasting sweetness. bigger than I had expected and the pronounced dry hops are nice along with a malt body that keeps up.

12 oz bottle - Pours a deep copper color with a very foamy off white head. Very much an English Ale vs a West Coast IPA - Plenty of earthy, malty aroma with none of the grapefruit/citrus smells. Taste is fairly malty and sweet with caramel. Nice.

Nice floral hop aroma. Dark red color. This has some nice hop bite right away, caramely malt following. A dry hop finish but medium in intensity. Quite tasty; one of my favorite sam adams beers.
