2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed 2/18/13. 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a dark copper color with good clarity. The head is a nice-looking two finger offwhite shade. While it fades rather quickly, it does leave nice splotches of lacing down the side of the glass.
S: Fairly typical for a middle-of-the-road IPA. Caramel malts counteract the earthy hops. This one seems to be pretty pine forward - normally not my cup of tea - in its aroma. I’m a bit disappointed that the German hops used aren’t more prevalent here.
T: Put simply, it’s mellow and inoffensive to a fault. Slight caramel malts to start give way to a slightly piny/earthy finish with a slight grassy linger. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this one, just that’s it’s devoid of bold flavor or interesting characteristics.
M: The somewhat thick, creamy body and weak carbonation overwhelms the lack of strong taste provided on the palate. Nonetheless, it’s quite easy to drink on the grounds of ’there just isn’t much to it’.
O: This is an IPA with training wheels. It won’t offend any senses...but neither will it impress them. Hard to return to this one when there are so many excellent IPAs on the shelves.

Pours a medium golden amber color. Aromas of citrus and fruit. Flavor is a big hop presence with subtle tastes of fruit and vegetables, then more hops.

A medium-dark Amber color with a smallish beige head. Has a European hop scent, earthy, tea leaves and a bit of allspice.Good body, has a slick feel, moderate bitterness, good balance, solid offering by the lads at Boston Brewing. I really like that they are always coming up with something new and innovative.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Quite an enjoyable beer, nice golden colour poured from bottle. Good level of hop but slightly overly done. Good carbonation.

Sehr malzig und für ein IPA definitv nicht hoppy genug.....zumindest für meinen Geschmack. Trotzdem lecker für zwischendurch oder zum Essen, muss ja nicht immer die Megaspezialität sein. Glaube von Norma,DK 355ml Flasche/ca. 2,50Euro.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light pale copper with a long-lasting white foam head. Aroma is citrus, earthy, and pine hops, though very light on the nose. Flavor is caramel, and earthy and citrus hops. Has a light sweetness, and a crisp finish. This is pretty much an under the radar drink that’s not in your face, but refreshing and enjoyable anyway.
