Poured into a pint glass
A: Aggressive pour yields 3/4 finger white head with good retention. Chill-hazy dark amber. Dark for an IPA, but typical of Latitude 48.
S: Bright citrus with a wave of caramel, some pineapple. Quite nice.
T: Subdued flavor that has pronounced bitter points and some dark fruit esters. Slight off cardboard flavor. Decent, though slightly astringent.
M: Effervescent, maybe a tad too much. Smooth otherwise. A tad phlegm inducing.
O: Fairly good. I'd order another, but wouldn't buy 6 of these.

The first of the single hop beers from Sam Adams I am trying.

This one has a nose of a lot of oils, but could stand to be a bit more vibrant. Flavor profile is smooth with earthy tones joining for a smooth and mellow ride. It isn't abrasive or outlandish. I think it's important to keep in mind that this is a single hopped beer, so there is going to be a different outcome than what would come from other multi-varietal IPAs. Based on that, I like this one. It strikes me as somewhat English in execution. Smooth feel. Easy drinkability. It's nice and a good way to start.
