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.

Malty, slightly fruity aroma with some drown sugar, and nice hops. Dark copper with a light head. Some earth, pine, and light biscuit malts. Finishes with a bit of caramel and spices. A decent IPA but definitely on the malty but spicy end. Not much in the way of hop bite, though.

Pours copper/amber with a medium sized head. Aroma is lovely with a lot of floral hops. Medium in body with a good amount of carbonation. Flavor is a bit mild for an IPA, but there are enough hops to make it worth while. Better than most of the Sam brews out there.

Pours on the ruby red or amber side of the ipa spectrum. Looks more malty than hoppy. The nose was muted caramel malt, moderately floral hops, some spicy hops, and a sort of murky smell as well. The taste was moderately hoppy, pine, and earthy hops come out at first that melds with a muted caramel malt inbetween and finishes with a spicy hop end. The mouthfeel was a bit thin for my liking.

Average beer, weaker ipa. Lacks balance and bite.. Must say I was disappointed in this ipa

Nate (3998) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2010
From bottle. Nice spicy hop nose, with pine and herbs. Mild biscuit and caramel malt notes. Dark ruby-brown clear with foamy-creamy off-white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts pretty dry with carbonic acidity, lots of hop bitterness and muted caramel sweetness. Finishes with crisp hop bite, tons of bitterness, and a light nutty sweetness.

nuplastikk (5668) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2010
12oz bottle. Appearance-wise, this one shapes up rather well. Deep amber-red-brown color, with a foamy, steady white head. Biscuity toasty malt and hop aroma. A pretty nice IPA, leaning towards the malty side of the equation. Thick and approaching syrupy. Too thick and caramel-like to really be a good example of an IPA, it still is a pretty decent beer, which demonstrates some macro quality control. Medium to full bodied, displays quite a lot of hop characteristics, from noble to West Coast. OK.

rustbucket0873 (369) - Krikville, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2010
pours a dark amber red color, kinda looks brown to me with an off white head. the aroma is slight in hops, and malt, with earthy notes. the taste is sweet upfront with a finish of hops and the aftertaste is just hops as well. this is an ok brew for the style, there are better ones out there

JMerritt (1931) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Bottled. Clear, dark amber color with a big off-white head. Earthy, lightly herbal grassy hop nose with some underlying caramel malts and grapefruit - pleasant, but nothing spectacular. Moderately bitter up front, but wanes to some melted toffees and straw. Feels a bit more English Pale Ale to me, but was still pretty tasty.

ChainGangGuy (4721) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Appearance: Pours out a clear, dark amber body with an initially fluffy, though ultimately short-lived, whitish head. Smell: Sweetish light-colored caramel sauce paired with oven toaster-toasted biscuit tops. Aromatic pops of hoppy spices, lemon juice, and dried, tea-like herbs fill the nose. Taste: A maltiness tasting of toasted biscuits hit with a small-sized spoonful of caramel and toffee. There’s a short-lived sweetness that drops out in anticipation of the incoming hops, which bring about a mixture of grassy herbs, lightly earthy spice, and lemon peel (a bit of pith included). Well-integrated bitterness. A last hint of dry caramel and spiced tea on the finish. Mouthfeel: Lat-48 comes up just shy of the medium body mark. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A tasty, nicely hoppy brew without hitting you over the head with scorching bitterness. "It’s an ale." --Matt Simpson. Too right, Matt, too right.
