This has the same nice look as the others in the series, a light caramel body capped by a creamy head. The4 aroma is fairly light, zest, a bit of pine, some grainy sweetness. The flavor is much the same, although the balance tips top the hops. The bitterness level is moderate yet sturdy. The finish is nicely dry with a resinous bitterness remaining in the mouth. Pretty good. jsmerig (1663) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours a clear copper color. Aroma of flowers with a touch of sour citrus. Taste is balanced and offset nicely with a delicate peppery hop note followed by a tart note blended with a dry crisp finish.

"spicy and earthy hallertaus on a nice malt backbone. a simple but tasty brew. i like it better than the regular release. 1st of the single hoppers i’ve tried so far..." Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Not enough of a hop punch, more along the lines of a hopped amber. Pine, earthiness, bitter toffee. Just okay. CpyNPrnT (620) - Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Aroma of lemon and citrus, taste is a very smooth lemony citrus all the way through on the palate. Very easy drinking.

Amber orange color, decent head. Tons of carbonation. Sweats outside the glass.
Aroma is is resinous and woody. Hint of plastic/phenol but very mild, not a dealbreaker. Has a prickly spiciness in the nose. Solid.
Flavor is very darkly woody, but also has a piney sweetness. Some oily spruce. The malts are caramel sweetness. Pretty enjoyable.
Feels slick and oily on the ol’ lip-licker. This is a solid beer. A little one-note, but very enjoyable and possibly a good IPA to get a non-IPA drinker to get started? 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle:   This one is a bit more on the pine resin side.   A bit more bitter than No 1 and No 2.   Not as sweet, more resiny.   Nice vibrant burnt orange color, good head and lacing like the rest.   I can see where this will compliment the others in that it brings in more of the resiny bitterness.   Wished it were sweeter, but as a component of Lat 48, I approve. mtdewa1 (441) - rome, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Darker gold pour. Aroma is pine, citrus and orange. Taste is pine, lemon, spice and citrus. Stronger bitterness than 1 & 2. Lingering bitterness at end. A bit fizzy and carbonated. Overall good. CopterScott (254) - Kansas, USA - AUG 13, 2014
clear amber color with about a finger of off white head, some lacing. aroma is light hops and malts. Flavor is light pine hops, malts, and some bitterness. Dal9000 (665) - Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Pours light amber with white head. Tastes very smooth light light citrus. Lingering slight bitter pine finish. Very mild IPA.
