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.

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.

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.

Deep orange-red, off white cover. Nice floral, citrus hop aroma, caramel. Taste is sticky caramel, dry bitterness, light spicy. I wish the flavor hops reflected the aroma hops.

A very good example of an IPA. Beautiful reddish-amber body with a clinging tan head. Grassy nose with just a hint of caramel sweetness. Relatively full, smooth mouthfeel. Grassy hops and a hint of pine is just backed by a caramel, biscuit sweetness. Finishes clean. Delicious!

Bottled. Pours amber with a small off white head. Smells of hay, malt, hops and earth. It is medium bodied with a bitter finish. Decent beer

Very well balanced... This beer might would actually be over the top for me except for the fact that the inital blast of flavor somewhat diminishes in the aftertaste. Hoppy, malty and the flavors blend well... very good beer.

Metalchopz (2558) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2010
Purchased in Nashville in a mixed 12-pack of Samuel Adams. Pours a clean dark amber colour with a beige foamy head that creates a lot of lacing. Great hop pine scent with notes of caramel malt. Medium-bodied with a crisp dry finish. The taste has notes of toffee, burnt malt, pine needle hops and a touch of grapefruit. I really enjoy this one, being quite hoppy in all sector and a nice new one from Samuel Adams.
