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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in an English pint glass. The beer pours a medium amber color, with a moderate just off-white head. The nose shows English crystal malt and earthy/herbal hop notes. German and English varietals of the latter seem to come through far more perceptibly than any U.S. species. Pleasing, but seemingly lacking some oomph for the style. The palate shows a mild but noticeable malt sweetness up front, followed by a quite strong note of fresh hop flavor in the mid-palate to finish. The latter is a note unlike any I’ve experienced in an IPA, and is quite nice; akin to the aromas volatized from the addition of hops to the brew kettle. Again, the flavors are pleasing, but lack the bitterness and hop punch found in excellent versions of the style. Mouthfeel and carbonation are both nicely dialed in. The finish seems almost balanced, with lingering notes of both hop bitterness/flavor and a slight residual sweetness. The general is of a recipe styled after U.S. east coast and/or English versions of the style. Overall, an interesting concept and a pleasing beer, if not quite up to the task of being a truly aggressive IPA.

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

PapaVillum (736) - 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".
