Enjoy before Oct 2014
L - amber body, nice clarity, beige head fades very quickly
S - sweet, caramel, bread, earth, pine, fruit
T - similar malt notes of caramel and bread as the first 2. Earthy pine, faint citrus, and black tea come to mind for hop notes.
F - medium body, creamy, fairly dry finish
O - more like an English Pale Ale here. I get what they're doing here, but as an IPA this isn't that good. Still very interesting to try.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH IPA glass.

A: Light; golden clear, with a fine white head and gentle effervescence.

S: Toasty. Like all the other Latitude single hop series, a touch of caramel. Hint of lemon and not much else.

T: Really unassuming. My least favorite Latitude so far. Kind of awkwardly sweet with a murkish wishy-washy hop character. Aftertaste is ever so slightly herbal.

M: Rather sticky for such a beer. Thoroughly meh though.

O: Not my thing. Hallertau Blanc was SO good and this is SO ehhh.

Poured on-tap into a "pint" glass. Pours reddish orange with a small white head. Smells of citrus and piney hops. Tastes of piney hops with citrus and slight sugary notes. Beer is light-medium bodied with a good level of carbonation, good finish. Overall, a very good beer.
