Enjoy before Oct 2014
L - amber body, nice clarity, beige head fades very quickly
S - sweet, caramel, bread, earth, pine, fruit
T - similar malt notes of caramel and bread as the first 2. Earthy pine, faint citrus, and black tea come to mind for hop notes.
F - medium body, creamy, fairly dry finish
O - more like an English Pale Ale here. I get what they're doing here, but as an IPA this isn't that good. Still very interesting to try.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH IPA glass.

A: Light; golden clear, with a fine white head and gentle effervescence.

S: Toasty. Like all the other Latitude single hop series, a touch of caramel. Hint of lemon and not much else.

T: Really unassuming. My least favorite Latitude so far. Kind of awkwardly sweet with a murkish wishy-washy hop character. Aftertaste is ever so slightly herbal.

M: Rather sticky for such a beer. Thoroughly meh though.

O: Not my thing. Hallertau Blanc was SO good and this is SO ehhh.

Poured on-tap into a "pint" glass. Pours reddish orange with a small white head. Smells of citrus and piney hops. Tastes of piney hops with citrus and slight sugary notes. Beer is light-medium bodied with a good level of carbonation, good finish. Overall, a very good beer.

This is a clear amber-orange beer with a slight head. Aroma is downright disappointing...sweet malt mostly with some very faint hops (smells like generic homebrew pale ale). Taste is a little bit better, with moderate bitterness and some floral hops, but it still tastes like an underhopped pale ale, rather than an IPA. The SA house yeast makes a flavor contribution as well.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into my Sam Adams beer glass. This beer pours a very clear, medium amber color. Has a nice thick, creamy looking head about 1/2-2/3 inch thick when first poured. Eventually settles to a nice 1/4 inch with very nice lacing and a nice thick white ring lining the inside of the glass. Excellent head retention here. Aromas of caramel malt sweetness followed by citrus and pine hops and settles out with a hint of spice. the taste is pretty much the same, slightly toasted caramel malt sweetness upfront that gives way to piney, earthy, citrusy hop goodness. Not too bitter. A nice balance of the malty sweetness and the bitterness from the hops. Rounded out with a bit of a peppery spice bite. Has a crisp, smooth, slightly prickly, slightly stick and chewy, resinous mouthfeel. This one really coats the inside of my mouth and does not want to leave. The mouthfeel is also medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Worth a try for sure.
