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.

Derek881 (1216) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Poured this beer from a 12oz bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer was mostly clear with a copper-amber color with a good-sized foamy off white head that had good retention, and solid cling and lacing. The aroma featured good, smooth citrus hops with scents of pine, and touches of caramel malt, along with some light earthy and lemon notes. The beer had a good, slightly bitter citrus taste with a slight touch of lemon zest and a light sour and bitter grainyness. Its body was fairly lively and carbonated, was slightly dry and a bit thin, and had an airy, fizzy mouthfeel.

Bottle. It poured a clear copper color with an off-white head and minimal lacing. The aroma is citrus and earthy notes. The bitter taste is dominated by a pine and citrus flavoring.

chucklemation (1038) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2016
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.

pivnizub (9728) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2016
Bouteille: Copper to light amber coloured, almost clear, hardly medium-sized, but creamy and stable off-white head; cough-syrup, soy sauce and nutty traces in the dryish-bitter nose; moderate to solid dry bitter flavour with some sweetish malty spots; medium bodied and still soft, even though a certain tartness is still detectable, no doubt; lingering - hops sticking to the palate - cough-syrupy and herbal hoppy finish, accompanied by toasted malt; warming alcohol in the aftertaste. O.K., but a bit too "cough-syrupy"…

ElDesmadre (2777) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle. Excellent balance with an old world flair despite the US-hops used. Medium, caramelly body, soft mouthfeel, notes of tea, hoppy-floral but also pervded by red fruit esters. Sweetish, light to medium bitter. Lovely malting. Really awesome stuff, they managed to coin together an English tasting IPA that actually is exciting.

(5) Average at best. Low hoppy. Not so interesting. Low ball. Too commercial. You know what I mean - where is the soul Samuel?!

PapaVillum (764) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2015
Kobberfarvet, rolig og filtreret amerikansk IPA med fin offwhite skumkrone på 3 cm. Svinder til gardiner, kant og overflade. Humlenuancer af harpiks og græs i næsen sammen med maltnuancer af hø samt citrus-noter. Rigeligt velsmagende IPA og masser af humlebitterhed. Fint balanceret med en mindre sødme. Smagen tynder dog lidt ud i slutningen, mens den endelige afslutning er næsten besk. Mellem fyldig krop og blød mundfølelse. Karboneret på et middel niveau, mens konsistensen er tynd til olieret. Denne øl kunne sagtens være min nye everyday-IPA. Fin øl både alkohol- og prismæssigt. 355 ml, flaske, 6,0 % ABV, BB: 08/2016, købt i Kvickly på Falkoner Allé på Frederiksberg. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maker: Boston Beer Company, Boston/Mass., United States *** Beer: Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA (bottled, 330ml) *** Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) *** ALC.VOL.: 6.0% *** "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." [brewery notes] *** Colour: Deep, slightly hazy amber with a medium, creamy off-white head. *** Nose: Caramel(!), herbs, pine, whiff of citrus. *** Texture: Medium- to full-bodied, not watery at all. Modest carbonation. *** Taste: Herbal and pinewood notes are dominant at the start, together with some unspecified citrus notes and chewy malts. Spicy, too. Medium is a bit resinous, with citric, pine and herbal essences rivaling for dominance. Finish is malty, only modestly bitter - in contrast to the after taste, which emphasizes pinewood. *** Impressions: Very good IPA/APA with a nice balance of hoppy and malty notes. Not a hop monster to be sure! But the malts add flavour and depth, and the herbal notes are interesting. Not *that* much different from their "Rebel IPA".
