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.

12oz courtesy of hawanna @Biervana post-BKL mini-tasting , danke. Classical East Coast APA/IPA crossover with pleasantly earthy EU and UK leanings: biscuit malt base, organge marmelade, some of that Lady Gray surfacing in between the more pronounced pine and grapefruit zest. Caramel malts provide more sweetness than texture, sessionable.

Dark orange. almost no head. Aroma is dense, crispy and malt-forward. There’s a nice mouthfeel to this one, crisp light, almost refreshing. european aroma with some mulch, graham cracker, ginger, honey.

Poured from a bottle into a glass. The beer is an attractive orange color with a single finger of creamy head that leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. It smells of pineapple, grass and brown sugar. A very pleasant nose. The taste is a bit sweet with a touch of apricot at first and then becomes more bitter and dry with the Euro hops shining through. Has an almost pilsner quality to it but a good pilsner. It’s as if an American craft brewery had a baby with a good German beer if that makes any sense. It’s medium bodied, a bit sticky with lively carbonation and finishes dry. This beer doesn’t exactly wow me for an IPA but there isn’t anything off about it either. I would definitely have this again. All in all a good beer.

This hoppy IPA provides a refreshing burst initially with an aromatic finish of spice. Aftertaste is clean. This beer is good alone or provides a refreshing combination with food.

Kopparfärgad öl. God doft av humle, malt och karamell där humlen inte tar över. Smak i samma bana där malten får lite mer utrymme än i många andra Ipa. Lätt sötma och beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an amber from a bottle with a medium-sized cream colored head with medium bubbles. Aroma is a great dry hopped citrus and resin, just smells sticky. Flavor is not quite as strong, a good malty background to balance the hops, but I feel the hops could be a little more potent. Good beer.
