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.

UDBeernut (1897) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Bottle at my in laws, poured into a pint glass. Coppery amber color small foamy head with ok retention. Caramel malt, light pine fill the nose. A malt centric IPA this one is, caramel malt provide the backbone with balance coming from pine, citrus, and grass. Mouth is light and buttery. Yum. Rated via BeerBuddy

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.

Solid offering from Samuel Adams. Pretty session able for an IPA. Nothing overpowering but you get the hops, bitterness, and dryness you expect in an IPA it just won’t blow you away, which is sometimes appropriate.

The label says it doesn't overpower you with hops. But it tastes like somebody accidentally spilled the entire barrel of hops in the vat and called it an IPA. In fairness, it's not awful. Just very hoppy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
