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.

Pours up a nice caramel color with a solid head of fine foam. Smells a bit of caramel with a slightly hoppiness to it. Taste initially seems like a hopped up IPA but then quickly mellows out and finally finishes really bitter.

tmoreau (4091) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2010
12 oz. bottle at the Midwest Longshot Regionals. Poured a clear, copper hue, with frothy, off white foam to the head, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The aroma was some light bready malt, fruit and citrus, followed up by some resiny notes. The flavor added to these some light malt sweetness, and appropriate hop bitterness to balance with the smooth malt. A mild, but flavorably sessionable IPA, somewhere between British and American styles of the beer.

Bottle sample at the Sam Adams tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 5/27/10. Clear amber/copper pour with a thin beige head. Grassy and earthy hop nose with a bit of malt. Grassy and citrusy hop flavor with a bit of malt and a bitter finish.

Probably one of their hoppiest beers. The aroma is hoppy, earthy, and spicy. The color is more on the dark side and the body is actually quite bigger then I expected, but I really liked it.

Pretty tasty IPA....nice aroma of pine/herbal/faint citrus hops with some malt lingering at the end. Flavor is hoppy, pine, resin, bit of tangerine...subtle malt presence and a moderate bitter bite.

Tmoney99 (14100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle. Poured a deep copper with a large off-white frothy head that lasted and produced good lacing. Good earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced bitter flavor with a moderate smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

Jethro6191 (508) - Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Pours amber with a hint of red. The white foamy white head clings to the glass. The aroma is very subtle floral and citrus hops. Sweet malt, caramel, toffee, and grapefruit notes. The flavor starts out sweet then finishes bitter. Medium body and carbonation. I liked the appearance of this beer, the color, clarity, and the way the head laced the glass. However, I felt this beer was overly sweet and the hop bitterness was a little too muted. Not a bad beer, but it tasted more like an amber ale than an IPA.

brew4fun (209) - West Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Deep reddish copper pour, short but lasting creamy head. Nice lacing. Aroma of light roast malt, earthy/woody/floral hops. Signifiicant bitterness, well rounded and ultimately pleasant. Malt sweetness well balanced. Medium body, light carbonation, Full mouthfeel. Lingering malty finish polished by wspy hop bitterness. A really different IPA, in a very good and interesting way. Look forward to 6-pack packaging at summers end. Must buy again!!

obxdude10 (2301) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Very nice IPA from Sam Adams! This delicious beer poured a dark golden color with a generous and sticky off-white head. The aroma is full of spicy hops, but balanced well with a yeasty and bready malt tone. The body is fairly thick, but contains some lots of spicy hops. The flavors also have some bread, light toffee, roasted malt, earth, grapefruit and pine notes. The finish again is very spicy and dry.
