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.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a clear medium orange color with an off-white head. The aroma is grassy and piney hops but is very faint. The flavor is grassy hops with some pine and citrus mixed in but it is a little faint as well. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. There is nothing wrong with this IPA, but it could be a little more aggressive in the flavor and aroma.

Had at Ashley’s. Pour was unknown. Aroma was hoppy full and balanced but not exciting. Flavor is full of hops and dirt.

Straight from the bottle. Very well done IPA, nicely balanced hops, small hint of a malt backbone, but the focus is definitely on the hops. Nicely done, Mr. Adams.

From the bottle. Had a couple of these at a party. Wasn’t sure what style it was but didn’t think it was an IPA. Plenty malty to start; bread, cereal, honey, buttery with crisp bitter hops in the finish. The malts are sweet but balanced pretty well by the bittering hops. Refreshing and fairly easy drinking. A solid beer.

Bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a small fluffy head. Nose is earthy hops, with a nice freshness and some hints of floral. Palate is medium bodied with a liveliness. Flavor is earthy tones with a light syrupy caramel malt note. Well balanced, fresh, and flavorful.

Orange pour with a tigh soapy head. Nose is fruity c-hops sweet and slightly malty, with some soapy/hop notes. Slightly sweet in the mouth, good carbonation throughout with a mild hop character. Would definitely enjoy MORE hops. On par with American Ale.

Sammer (1029) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2010
12 oz. dark golden pour from bottle. Citrus nose. Taste is citrus and light hops, without being too bitter. Smooth finish. Very decent beer from Samuel Adams.

dark orange with a small fizzy white head with some lacing. nose is pretty typical for SA-there is still a lingering artificial plastic malt note under the piney hops, earthy tones and berry fruity notes. I just dont like their beers because of the nose in most of them is awful. This one is better than most, but still not that good. flavors sart with sweet malt, pine, herbal hops lite resin and that fruit note from the yeast (or artificial malt/extract). the plastic comes out even more when its warm-some veggie notes as well.
