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 Mosaic hops as having a "subtle fruit notes of pineapple and Mandarin orange along with hints of eucalyptus."

I’m getting the pineapple in the nose. Citrusy notes are also present in the flavor profile especially on the finish. There is also a dry character to the finish. Eucalyptus (what?) is nowhere to be found.

Even though I am not the biggest fan of Pale Ales (more often than not I am a lager kind of guy), this IPA did not offend my palate in fact quite the contrary: while most IPAs tend to be way too citrus-y (in some cases, to the extent that they're sour tasting) for my liking, this is quite refreshing. An excellent balance of caramel sweetness against just a light citrus influence. A nice "drink slow" kind of beer to enjoy while talking with the guys, watching a ball game, or reading. I wish I lived somewhere where there was a tavern that I could order this straight from the tap.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Citrusy hops, caramel malt tropical fruits are balanced on the palate. Finish is medium, semidry. Easy drinking, balanced, tasty IPA, much better than #1 in the series.

A: Copper orange, very little carbonation, slight haze, 4 fingers of slight beige white head with large and small bubbles and excellent retention.

S: Orange, orange candy, berry, caramel malts, it smells sweet and candied.

T: Orange, caramel, raspberry, toasted malts and yeasty dough bomb, dull fresh bitterness that lasts on the end. Slight blueberry, but its not anything like a blueberry flavoured beer or blueberry mead, just a tart berry like quality.

M: Medium bready body, medium low carbonation.

O: Really well crafted and fresh beer. Could enjoy this many times over.
