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.

nearbeer (3782) - 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.

Leighton (11431) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle. A pretty good IPA. Pours dark copper with a medium white head. Nose holds some earthy, floral hops and light malts. Mildly sweet in the flavor’s front, then quickly becomes bitter. A pretty pungent, earthy bitterness, very East Coast/English in style. Medium body with average carbonation. Finish is medium length and bitter. I’d say one of the better Sam Adams beers I’ve had.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Copper, ruby highlighted pour with a fast dissipating light beige head. Hop and malt aroma. Well balanced flavor, initial hop flavor and bitterness followed by a nice buttered biscuit malt. A good but forgettable ipa.

Blah! Bad beer. Aroma was very average. A distant grapefruit rine that you have to search for. Pour was a nice deep dark orange that looks like an IPA should. Taste is not good. Dust, terpentine and stale malt in the front, then the hops kick in but leave a soapy aftertaste. Very weird beer and it’s odd how it can be bad in so many ways. Nice prickly carbonation. As it warms it’s not as bad and the soap flavor subsides a bit, but still not good

CptGreencoat (95) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle from Summer variety pack. Pours to a red-orange with a one finger, rocky head. Nose is lighter than your average IPA, but grapefruit citrus notes prevail, while slightly sweet malts take the sidelines. The first sip provides a nice clean bitterness and a mouthful of citrus hops. I’m getting a bit of lemon and grapefruit that are complimented by a balance of crystal malts. Gorgeous lacing. This is a well balanced, while remaining hop heavy IPA. It is by no means a hop bomb or anything that should be highly sought after, but if it was sold in 6-packs, I’d buy it regularly. Sammy boy delivers another solid drink.

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.
