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. Pours a dark copper color with a small fluffy head. Nose is earthy hops, with a nice freshness and some hints of floral. Palate is medium bodied with a liveliness. Flavor is earthy tones with a light syrupy caramel malt note. Well balanced, fresh, and flavorful.

Orange pour with a tigh soapy head. Nose is fruity c-hops sweet and slightly malty, with some soapy/hop notes. Slightly sweet in the mouth, good carbonation throughout with a mild hop character. Would definitely enjoy MORE hops. On par with American Ale.

Sammer (1079) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2010
12 oz. dark golden pour from bottle. Citrus nose. Taste is citrus and light hops, without being too bitter. Smooth finish. Very decent beer from Samuel Adams.

Terminus (3329) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 15, 2010
dark orange with a small fizzy white head with some lacing. nose is pretty typical for SA-there is still a lingering artificial plastic malt note under the piney hops, earthy tones and berry fruity notes. I just dont like their beers because of the nose in most of them is awful. This one is better than most, but still not that good. flavors sart with sweet malt, pine, herbal hops lite resin and that fruit note from the yeast (or artificial malt/extract). the plastic comes out even more when its warm-some veggie notes as well.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Bottle. Rich copper color, darker than I expected. Nice aroma of orange and floral hops- light and crisp. Orange, sweet malt, crisp finish. Like the Noble Pils but more bitter. I like this, drinkable with some body and character.

Aroma of basement, earth. The appearance is a dark orange, clear, white head. The flavor is earthy, floral, dusty. The finsh is earth, slightly bitter. The beer is medium in body. OK. Straight up the middle IPA.

TheBeerGod (5506) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle. Copper pour with a tall tan colored head. Aroma is unique. Spicy and earthy hops clash with pine and floral hops atop sweet malt and caramel. Taste is strong spicy hops, toffee, sweet malt, grains, caramel, citrus fruit, light pine and tea leaves. Body is medium with a strong, creamy carbonation. Ends with more spicy and earthy hops, caramel, Bit O Honey, grains, and fruit notes. Rather tasty. Different than I expected, as well.

xShanex (60) - Wyalusing, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a rich amber color with frothy ivory head that leaves moderate lacing. Slight pine and citrus on the nose. Taste is comparable to a half ass IPA and is lacking complexity. This beer is a bit watery on the finish. Not bad but not amazing either. Have another? If Dogfish Head is not available...

Another bottle that craig sent me home with. Thanks! Amber pour. Frothy off white head. I smell some resemblance to cascade hops. some light grapefruit peel and some light bready notes are around too....odd. Flavor is pretty terrible for the style. What did they do, take a shitball of an amber and drop one hop pellet in it? Not sure how the aroma has any hop character, because the flavor sure doesn’t. Major bummer.
