A: This poured a clear copper with some off white head.
S: It smelled like citrus zest and resin hops, with a little honey malt.
T: It tasted like resin hops, with some citrus zest and honey malt. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with some carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was maybe the best IPA of the pack, with crisp scent and taste and passable body. Not delicious, but really not bad.

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

APPEARANCE: pours a clear copper color with one finger off-white head that dissipated quickly into a thin broken layer of bubbles, medium carbonation and there was significant lacing on the glass.

SMELL: caramel, bread, pepper.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel, bread then an average piney hop profile with just a hint of a metallic taste.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a good IPA but not spectacular, there was a slight metallic taste that was somewhat unpleasant to me.

Poured into a standard pint glass: color is dark copper to near amber, head is light tan and presents thick almost 1/2 inch.

Smell is piney, earthy, a good amount of caramel malt but its clean followed by some more biscuity malt, light toast.

Taste is a bit sweeter, more caramel than in the nose; hops are bitter, earthy, somewhat harsh.

Mouthfeel is fairly balanced and more ipa like, less sweet in the lingering feel and more bitter.

Overall, an ipa that leans more towards a hoppy amber ale with a harsher bitter flavor

S: earthy with a little pine and caramel;

O: a nice piece of the Latitude 48 puzzle;
