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.

SamTheBarrel (498) - Vallentuna, - SEP 19, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 355 ml bottle, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Clear dark amber with a medium sized beige head, left foam patches when reduced. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon peels and pine. Taste of grapefruit, lemon, caramel and butterscotch. Medium carbonation and light-medium body. Less bitter than the average IPA, slight sweetness. Nothing outstanding for the style, just a good easy to drink IPA.

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

Poured from bottle, amber with medium creamy head. Aroma is kind of sweet with notes of fruit and syrup and pine. Taste is bitter but well balanced with a slightly sweet malt body, notes of caramel, dried fruit and resin. Light bitter finish.

espenra (884) - Kurland, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2014
35.5cl bottle from Systembolaget. Best before 2014-06-01. It poured a copper colour with a medium big white head. Although it was well after the best before date the aroma is still massive hops, malts, pine and some dark caramel or toffee. Aroma is bitter. Lots of resin and pine. More malty than hoppy by now, but hops are noticable after a little while. Lingering aftertaste with notes of citrus and hops. Wish I had tried it when it was fresh.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 3, 2014
12oz bottle - Part of the Harvest/Fall pack of 2012. An above average, if not fantastic IPA no matter how you slice it. Wonderful aroma, solid hop profile with a minimalistic approach to the malts, which I loved. The 2 bottles I had went pretty quick. This could stand up pretty well to some of the great IPA’s out there.
