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.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Bottled@SBWF2012. Amber colour with a small slightly off-white foamy head. Aroma is grapefruit, peaches, some slight citrus along with some bready and caramel maltiness to it. Flavour is quite sweet from floral and fruity hops, and the malts are rather crisp and sweet as well. Balanced, and maybe it could do with a bit more complex malty profile.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle. A pretty good IPA. Pours dark copper with a medium white head. Nose holds some earthy, floral hops and light malts. Mildly sweet in the flavor’s front, then quickly becomes bitter. A pretty pungent, earthy bitterness, very East Coast/English in style. Medium body with average carbonation. Finish is medium length and bitter. I’d say one of the better Sam Adams beers I’ve had.
