Since I have already rated and reviewed Latitude 48, I am going to keep my review on this “deconstructed” version focused upon the hop character.

The brewer describes East Kent Goldings hops as having a "mellow bitterness with earthy, floral and apricot notes."

I’m getting the earthiness in both nose and flavor profile; not so much with the apricot and floral notes. This version is malt forward and very much in the tradition of a true English IPA. The bitterness grows as one drinks it.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt, herbal hops and ripe fruit. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Earthy, herbal hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, earthy, and astringent. I guess I do not like East Kent Golding in IPA.
