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. 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.

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

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.

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.
