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.

5/07/2010: Samuel Adams Latitude 48... Aroma: Toffee and fruity maltiness topped with plenty of earthy and slightly spicy hops. Appearance: Deep orange color; transparent; creamy beige head; adequate lacing. Flavor: Chewy caramel and European fruity maltiness (like Marris Otter malt) followed by a somewhat aggressive combination of floral, earthy, spircy, and herbal bitterness; toffee in the middle; some residual sweetness in the front with the hops taking over in the finish. Palate: Medium-body; average. Overall: This beer is like a stronger version (more malt and bitterness) of the Samuel Adams Noble Pils, but the Noble Pils is still better...

12 fl. oz. bottles. Rating #84 for this beer.

This is definitely English in style with some nice bready, caramel malts shining through in the aroma and flavor dept. The pour is clear amber orange with a medium off white head. Good lacing. I’m picking up a lot of caramel, orange and pineapple in the aroma with a hint of grain. The flavor is very grainy/malty with lots of sweet fruit and good balance with the bitter citrusy hops in the finish. Lot’s of bread in the aftertaste as well. This tasted very balanced and clean, and reminded me a lot of Full Sail IPA.

12 oz bottle pour, backyard acquisition. pours a clear darkish amber with large bubbled off white head with good sticky lace. Aroma is of sweet toasty malts with some nice citrus undertones. Hmm....this is an IPA? very sweet and malty with more undertones of bittering hops but not the citrus from the nose. Does have some nice bitter but still does not pan out as an IPA to me. smooth creamy mouthfeel with a short slightly dry finish. Summed: Decent beer but a little heavier on the malt side. Good but not my opinion of an IPA.

Served from bottle into a Samuel Smith imperial pint. Pours a deep red-orange with a one-finger white head that lingers throughout. It maintains nice lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of only a slight hint of hops and nothing else that I could pick up on. The flavor was a light malt with a small amount of hops. It was light on the palate and had medium carbonation. Overall this was not my favorite bew from Samuel Adams. I was expecting more when I first saw this ’new’ IPA, but was let down. However it is still a nice brew, just not what I expected. It could be improved if there was more of a hoppy flavor to it though.

Bottled. Poured clear deeper orange with a nice cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet toffee and caramel notes spiced up by dry floral and earthy hoppage.. malty overall, with with very complementary hops.. well balanced. The flavor found caramel, toffee, and a touch of molasses at the core.. more bitterness than the nose indicated, sporting earthy, floral, and sprucey notes.. finished spicy and quite bitter, with residual sugars. Medium-bodied and sweet overall on the palate.. spicy and well-balanced.. tasty stuff!

nearbeer (3816) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2011 12 oz. Clear, deep copper with a creamy lasting quarter-inch of bubbles. Aroma of forest-floor leaves and wood, toffee, peppery citrus, and cabbage. Near-medium body is creamy smooth and sweetish, with a dry, leafy-woody finish. Flavor is fruity caramel, light cocoa and orange, with a slightly dry finish of wood, nut shell, and earthy tea leaf. Very nice and love the earthy hops.

Bottle. Copper-bronze with a thick frothy head. Nice restrained hoppy aroma. Drinks with a nice tight bitterness, not too bullying though like some American IPAs can be. There’s a big solid malt foundation to this too. Delicious. (#3912, 5/23/2010)

Samuel Adams... never a bad decision. Pours a dark amber with a tan head. Aroma is a floral and pine hops. Flavor reminds me more of a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Good hop character with grassy hops. Slight amount of citrus mixed in, and fairly bitter. Not quite what I expect from an IPA as it doesn’t seem to have the hops needed or the citrus character. I could drink this all afternoon.
