It's an attractive deep orange with a bit a lacing and a nice ring of white head.

The nose is stronger than the taste. Sweet citrus and orange and maybe some tropical fruits.

Taste is a bitter sweet tangerine. Kind of grassy.

Mouthfeel is crisp clean slightly medium.

Overall the nose led me to believe it'd be more of a juice bomb. Closer to Big Daddy or something like that. It's not bad by any means but yeah I bit of boring after a certain point, but that's the point of these I guess.

Samuel Adams Latitude 48 Deconstructed IPA - East Kent Goldings, number 1 of the 5 hops used in latitude 48.
A: pours a rich golden copper tint, nice 2 finger off white foam head, some stringy lacing, bits of carbonation
S: earthy, vegetal, slight floral notes, hints of tropical fruit, and like description says apricot
M: medium, slight creamy body
T: earthy, heavy vegetal, grapefruit rind resin, hints of tropical fruit, plain bitterness
O: good but not great, not a huge fan of this hop alone due to the heavy earthy taste, but it is an important hop for many brews. Worth trying to improve your palate's ability to discern different hop varieties. 3.25 stars
