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.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2010 Earthy, malty aroma, thick creamy head, deep copper color. Heavy aroma follows with sweet taste and slight hopping. Nice clean brew.

Was excited to try Sam Adams Latitude 48 when I found it in a variety pack; I’d never even heard of it before. A nut brown color and nearly no aroma. Strange color for an IPA. Starts pleasantly enough, but this is a pretty weak stab at an IPA. As a coworker of mine puts it, it’s kind of like a fast-food IPA. Manufactured bitterness, lacking the fresh hops character of it’s west coast counterparts. Just doesn’t stand up to the competition. Drinkable, but nothing special.

Attractive amber pour floating arich white head. The nose is pretty mild...lightly roasted malt and hints of citrus and floral hops. The flavor is also mild...light caramel and toffee, floral and citrus hops, but subdued. Decent lawnmower brew, refreshing and straightforward.

This was a pretty boring IPA, the hops werent balanced that well and it was not too easy to drink. I think they were trying to imitate the sierra nevada special beers and failed.

Bottle shared by Brian. Thanks! Pours amber color with off white head. Aroma initially had strong pine notes when poured. That went away pretty quickly. Medium mouthfeel. Slight bitterness, slight pine flavors, lead way to a strong malt backbone. Decent brew.

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.

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.

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.

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.
