Served in a pint.

A: Pours a reddish-copper brown color with a short tan head that dissipates quickly leaving small amounts of lacing.

S: Smells of pine, wheat, hops, barley, yeast, sugars

T: Tastes alright, wheat, grains, malts, yeast, sugars, has a strong hop finish

M: Medium bodied beer with medium amounts of carbonation, has a good hop kick at the end, although I don't really like it but its an IPA so I can expand my horizons a bit.

O: Overall this beer was alright, if I didn't have an aversion to hops I'd probably like it more but still it was a fairly mild IPA and was not too over done for me.

Latitude 48 IPA is a good Bier... Fresh scent of pine.. awakens the sense of smell.. the sense of taste.. a sense of India...a culture that understands the quality of breathing.. of patience amongst turmoil.. of a pause in the daily maelstrom of life.
Not the best entry for this brewery, but a nice Ale.. it quenches the one's thirst.. and gives pause to enjoy bier.. and to enjoy bier...'tis a gift worth embracing..

Hadn't had a hoppy beer from Sam Adams in a long time and was excited to try this one out. From the start I noticed that this one had a much more herbal spin to it than I expected. Definitely not the traditional American IPA grapefruit/pine combo. Having said that, there was also a dullness to the hop character. The beer wasn't out of code, but it wasn't that bright hop flavor I've come to expect in an American IPA. I like that it wasn't over the top bitter, but would have preferred it to be a bit more aromatic an a little less earthy. Overall, I enjoyed the beer but was looking for something a little more true to the style these days.
