Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date October 2014.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear dark amber color with off-white 1 finger head that dissipated quickly leaving a thin broken layer of bubbles, there was a fair amount of lacing on the glass and medium carbonation.

SMELL: roasted malt, sweet caramel, flowers.

TASTE: initially sweet caramel, earthy and then just plain bitter, reminds me of an English bitter.

PALATE: medium carbonation and body.

OVERALL: The East Kent Goldings hop does not make a good single hop IPA, in my opinion. It's a complimentary hop that tastes better when blended. Having said that, I'm glad I could experience this hop variety on it's own and think Sam Adams had a novel idea to deconstruct Latitude 48 IPA into five single hop IPA's. Can't wait to try the others.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an Oct 2014 expiration date. Sampled on September 20, 2014.

Handsome looking orange-amber pour with a frothy, milk shake-like cream colored head. Busy carbonation.

A tropical fruit-like nose from those hops and a roasted malt backbone.

Medium body.

Mildly hopped taste with a similar mildly hopped finish. Quite easy to drink.
