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.

Hoppy, but not too hoppy. The first taste is malty with a hint of roasted coffee. The after taste is slightly sour. Overall it’s a good, moderate, IPA that I would go to again. Although it’s nothing spectacular.

MoritzF (8726) - GERMANY - JUL 30, 2015
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, amber colour with a slightly beige medium-sized foamy head. Mildly biscuity cara-malty aroma with spicy herbal, fruity and delicately woody hops, including notes of grapefruit. Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly bready malty base with notes of caramel and a present hoppy blend with notes of grapefruit, herbs and grassy accents; dry-ish bitter-sweet finish with a lingering, mostly spicy herbal hops character. Solid. 24.IV.15

Vaiz (3834) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle camping in France. Hazy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, some grapefruit, grainy malts, slightly spicy and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is quite bitter, sugary malts and quite spicy. A bit messy.

Clear reddish orange with light white head. Lemongrass or lemon juice concentrate. Floral and grassy with grapes. Bitter and surprisingly sweet for non-D IPA. Sticky and fizzy.

TorbenJensen (515) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
Latitude 48 has a beautiful orange-red clear color and a good aroma of fruit and hops. It is not as hoppy as many other IPA’is, on the contrary, is the perfectly balanced between notes of orange, lemon and peach and a semi-dry hoppy bitterness that keeps the aftertaste for a long time.

tbonde (181) - DENMARK - MAY 31, 2015
355 ml bottle@home in tulip glass@approx 6 degrees C.Pours deep amber with a sufficient. Aroma of hops and bread. Surprisingly fullbodied, round taste - a bit like a mix between a dark Belgian, an APA and a British IPA. Plenty of hops but also caramel, christmas cake, bread and malt with a slightly bitter hoppy aftertaste. It is not at all bad and is well balanced in it’s own style. A beer to be enjoyed slowly on a cold day.
