4.09/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Stunned to see that I've never rated this beer, as the case I bought over 3 years ago has been very slowly enjoyed and tonight is my last bottle? Definitely no longer "fresh", the hops have faded, but still a decent beer and an indication of what a (relatively) big brewer can accomplish, if so inclined...

Still looks nice in a glass, amber with white peaks and enough carbonation to be fun to drink. The dried blood aroma of faded hops is solely due to their age (and poor care keeping) of this bottle, I well remember this beer packing a tropical aromatic punch. Likewise the taste is now malt-forward and many nuances are missing, but still an enjoyable portfolio despite being kept well beyond its date.

Not fond of the latitude moniker, but this continues to be an exceptionally well brewed beer. Thank-you, Sam Adams!

4.11/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH IPA glass. The culmination of the entire deconstruction series.

A: Golden clear, with a fine white head and gentle effervescence.

S: Herbal and citrusy. Quite pleasant and aromatic. Herbaceaousness takes the day.

T: Maybe it's the priming of the previous five (half) beers, but this is exceptionally complex and definitely delicious. Almost perfectly balanced between hoppy and fruity; sweet and bitter. Fruit takes the day on the endtaste. Aftertaste is clean and pleasant.

M: Rich and pleasant.

O: Great IPA. Highly recommended. Would drink again.
