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. Pours a clear copper color with a nice white head. Smooth hoppy aroma. Light caramel notes. Nice, smooth taste. Kind of crisp. Some malty presence, as well as some caramel and hops.

I was mostly impressed by this offering from the Boston Beer Co. Ahh, the good old days when England ruled American and India.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Pours a copper color with a large white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, hops, dough. Flavor is dough, caramel, some hop bitterness in the finish. Well balanced and decent amount of bitterness. Not flawed, but not quite as big as I like my IPA’s.

Nik925 (751) - California, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Solid. The hops and bitterness start off good, but leave a poor aftertaste. The malt is solid, fully and correctly fermented. A good, yet average beer. Like most Sam Adams, this is great for what they are aiming for, and while some may fault them for not enough hops, others will fault them for "bitter beer face". This is a quality brew with some mass appeal.

Maddog (392) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Imagine an average beer from Boston Beer Company. Remember when they were the pioneers of the brewing industry? They are just so afraid to brew a killer beer. This "ipa" is a decent pale ale. The pour is dark amber in color with flavors of malt, spice and light pine hops. Very mild, very average and at 5.8 percent, certainly not an ipa.

Juelze (1138) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Pours a ruddy brown color with medium off-white head. Aroma is like citrus, bready malt and a bit of earthiness. Taste is more towards an English IPA were the citrus hop profile and the malt bone share the spotlight with. Pretty decent beer but I prefer the Americanized version of IPA.

beerbill (3413) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with thin-moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left very little lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel, bready malt, and mild citrus. The flavor is caramel and bready malt followed by a wash of bitter citrus hops. Some mild bitterness lingers on the palate well after the swallow. Solid beer.

sethdude (699) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Pours reddish-orange with a medium head. Aroma is grainy, caramel, and a somewhat medicinal/herbal hop note. Flavor is full, big rye-bread in the outset, followed by peppery hops which give way to a brighter fruit flavor, lemon zest, pink grapefruit, and a bit of cherry, coming back to a bitter rye toast, and a clingy bitter finish on the tongue and palate. Overall quality is there, this one suffers more from being yet another IPA in a sea of contenders, without doing anything notably different.

JoeTheYounger (1144) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Very clear golden nice color with thick white bubbly head. Citrus yet sweet caramel aroma. Taste was hops and lots of malts with a bit of sweet caramel and faint bitterness. Nice balance between the both. Could be more hoppy though.

I’m not a massive fan of IPAs so this was quite a pleasant surprise. Alcohol was notable but the malt was unusually notable giving a well-balanced beer.
