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.

I was somewhat hesitant to try this since I really don’t care (at all) for IPAs but this was quite nice. Probabaly the best IPA I’ve ever had. Nice color with a slight citrus taste. Best thing was it doesn’t have the almost overpowering hoppiness I find with most IPAs.

IPAgutten79 (480) - Skui, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Gylden farge med lavt skum. Aroma av mild grapefrukt, noe sitrus og malt. Overraskende bitter smak, i hvert fall aromaen tatt i betraktning. Ellers sitrus, malt og litt furu. Tynn/medium konsistens.

jhliesen (714) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle--gold color with a small, white head. Some malt and caramel in the aroma to balance the citrus. The taste is pretty even between malts and hops with nothing jumping out at you. Good solid session IPA. Total Wine.

elosop (143) - SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2014
Klar, mörkt kopparfärgad med liten skumkrona. Svag sötma med lite humle i eftersmaken. Återigen en IPA med minimal beska, men välbalanserad & god.

Dorwart (2363) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Thin off-white head of varying sized bubbles with good carbonation. Weak aroma with some hops presence and mild malts . Color is a nice brownish orange. Flavor is moderate hoppy goodness with a nice balance of malts and roasted grains. Nothing really jumps out but just a good balance of flavors. Finishes mild bitterness with some lingering bitter orange.

Decent IPA. Emphasis on floral and earthy hops is not what I tend to go for, but there’s some grapefruit and pine resin in there. It’s well balanced with moderate east coast sweetness. Bitterness is moderate and appropriate for the style, but with some lemon that I don’t particularly like. Middle of the pack beer, but made interesting because of the Deconstructed box, which I’d happily buy every year as a hops refresher course.

Hidden_Pooch (276) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
I found this beer to be weak on hop and malt taste. It poured a brownish copper with an off white frothy head that lasted. Aroma was of faint floral hops, light pine, and citrus. Tasted of pine, citrus, resin, and caramel, but all of those tastes were light and watery. Had a medium body with a light bitter finish. I prefer their rebel IPA over this one.

OK, decent flavor but certainly not an upper tier IPA. Middling at best IMO.

12 oz. bottle. Pour is a clean copper with a nice off- white head. Nose is caramel with earthy hops and orange zest. A bit of pine and bitter grapefruit. Taste is sweet with a malty breadiness. Plenty of hop bitterness with some mild citrus and underlying earthy hop character. I always liked this one, feel like it's gotten lost in the shuffle of American IPAs over the years.
