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.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, citrus, light pine and a hint of mint. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, pine, light grapefruit and a hint of mint with a smooth dry lingering moderatly bitter earthy finish. Very well balanced. Great beer from Sam Adams!

jgb9348 (5010) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Nice crisp amber coloured body with a dense tan head and some bubbles rising from the bottom - not many though. Aroma of fresh bright hops, some citrus, a touch of toffee and a good malt backbone. Medium-bodied; Assertive hop flavour up front with grass and perfume most noticeable. Aftertaste shows a bit of the hops, but mostly grass and malt, with a slight bit of caramel sweetness. Overall, more of an APA, but this is still showing well and is definitely drinkable. Not a horrible choice - worth a try for sure. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from a summer sampler twelve pack purchased at Giant in Manassas earlier today, sampled back at home in Manassas on 12-June-2010.

Pours dark amber with a mostly receding off-white head. Notes of earthy toffee, herbal hops, light resin, orange, spice, and nuts. Medium bodied and lightly resinous with moderate carbonation.

Nice interplay between the different hop flavors. The beer showcases grassy, floral, and spicy hoppiness. A supportive malt backbone kept the beer from becoming too top heavy. It’s not necessarily the IPA I’d run to for a hop fix, but it does have charm.

Vir4030 (560) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Pours up a nice caramel color with a solid head of fine foam. Smells a bit of caramel with a slightly hoppiness to it. Taste initially seems like a hopped up IPA but then quickly mellows out and finally finishes really bitter.

tmoreau (2823) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2010
12 oz. bottle at the Midwest Longshot Regionals. Poured a clear, copper hue, with frothy, off white foam to the head, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The aroma was some light bready malt, fruit and citrus, followed up by some resiny notes. The flavor added to these some light malt sweetness, and appropriate hop bitterness to balance with the smooth malt. A mild, but flavorably sessionable IPA, somewhere between British and American styles of the beer.

Bottle sample at the Sam Adams tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 5/27/10. Clear amber/copper pour with a thin beige head. Grassy and earthy hop nose with a bit of malt. Grassy and citrusy hop flavor with a bit of malt and a bitter finish.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Probably one of their hoppiest beers. The aroma is hoppy, earthy, and spicy. The color is more on the dark side and the body is actually quite bigger then I expected, but I really liked it.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Pretty tasty IPA....nice aroma of pine/herbal/faint citrus hops with some malt lingering at the end. Flavor is hoppy, pine, resin, bit of tangerine...subtle malt presence and a moderate bitter bite.

Bottle. Poured a deep copper with a large off-white frothy head that lasted and produced good lacing. Good earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced bitter flavor with a moderate smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.
