Our new 2013 release features Mosaic hops, a new hop from the Pacific Northwest. They add a burst of citrus notes to the distinctive layers of German, English and other American hops, all from growing regions near the "hop belt" of the 48th Latitude. Cheers!

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Copper pour with a 1 finger, creamy off white head. Aroma of biscuit, toast, light caramel, toffee, citrus, floral and spicy hops. Flavor is a little faint up front, but not bad, toast, caramel and fruity hops, followed up by floury grain, citrus, spicy, floral, a hint of pine and cat box. The finish is a nice bitter grapefruit, meets pine buds with a a little caramel. Light, dry body with a slightly creamy feel on entry, moderate, blanketing carbonation. Good stuff, lots more bitterness than I would have expected, I wonder if this will be replacing Latitude 48 this year or if it is only for the HopOlogy mix pack.

Rather bland tasting ups, tastes more like a pale ale, with only slight hop influence.

degbert (1741) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark gold-amber with orange highlights. High, lacy, large-grained head. Nose is clean and sharp, with rose, pine, rosemary, geranium, and spruce notes. Bright and citrusy on the tongue, with some lime and grapefruit on the finish; a little mellow savory lactic edge keeps it balanced. The best of the Deconstructed Lat 48 IPAs. Id drink this on its own.

mansquito (5738) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus, orange, grapefruit. Taste balances well with the malty backbone. Not very bitter. Rather fruity, but not in that full-bodied aggressive way like so many West Coast IPAs.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle at world of beer Easton OH. A little bit like a lager meeting an ipa. Has the trademark Sam Adams clear hue and creamy head. Taste has acidic fruit, definitely mandarin orange as advertised. Balanced out by dark malt hops. I like the experimentation on Sam Adams part - and not surprisingly it's well executed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
