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 Zeus hops as having an "intense piney and resinous character."

I’m getting a mildly piney nose - there is nothing terribly intense here. No really pine in the flavor profile. Also, the resin is quite low-key. This is likely the least interesting of the deconstructed samples.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy and piney hops, caramel and bready malt. Body is medium and tangy. Citrusy, piney, herbal hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and very bitter. This brew will not be among my favorite IPAs.
