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 deep amber into a Sam glass. Off-white conglomerate head with good retention recedes to skim surface leaving trailing sheets. Dark caramel and resin aromas. Thick and full upfront with dark caramel turning to sharp resin in the middle and a lasting grapefruit finish. Bigger use of hops than normal for a Sam with good balance.

Perfect pour, amberish with huge rocky head. Aroma is malt forward, biscuit and maris otter if I had to guess, hop character not as big as you would expect. Flavor much the same. Very clean. English style IPA, if your a huge hophead, not your thing.

Very nice brew. The smell is very pungent of hop aroma. Pours a nice deep amber with a small disappearing off-white head that leaves minimal lacing. The taste is very good, with a nice balance of malts and hops. Nice mouthfeel with a great crisp finish. Good IPA. 3.5

Part of their mix pack. nice beer. mild/moderate hops. toffee and english malting. I enjoyed this beer but it is a bit of disappointment for most hop heads

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2011 Pours a barley wine-like ruby-amber with a small off white head that leaves lots of lacing. The aroma is hoppy, with a lot of peppery and citrus notes. There is also a lot of caramel and toffee from the malt. Sweet flavor upfront turns to strong bitterness with citrus and floral notes.

Looks apealing as you por the amber colored beer to a small white head. Can smell the fruity scent right away. Surprsed by the sharp taste that was on the bitter side. Had the consistancy of a winter type beer. Kind of disappointed in it.

Solid IPA... Nothing to brag about, but good hop blend and nice malty balance.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2011 May 31, 2010; 12 oz. bottle. Bought the summer-sampler 12-pack just to give this and the Pale Ale a try. Near-ruby color with thin white head; minimal lacing. Sweet, piney aroma; flavor follows suit. Balanced more toward the malt, but I didn’t find the recipe wanting for hops. Not as hop-laden, perhaps, as the excellent, juiced Noble Pils, but I found this "Latitude 48" to be a very enjoyable sweeter-style of IPA -- a winner.

From the variety pack at the in-laws, the night of Halladay’s perfect game. Decent IPA, nothing really wrong with it, but not great. I’d drink it again if it was around, doubt I will buy it.
