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.

Appearance: pours well and has a nice copper red color. Had a nice creamy head about half inch thick.
Smell: Had a eath type citrus smell. was very unique
Taste: tasted a nutty caramel flavor with a citrus flavor towards the back of the throat and I had a nice taste of smoothness. There is some bitterness not much but enough to be noticeable.
Mouthfeel:had a slight hit of bitterness in my mouth but went down smoothly I find this to be a smoother beer from Samuel Adams
Overall: Overall I highly recommend this beer, goes well with grilling foods

*note: I am not a professional beer taster, the opinions in this review are mine and mine alone.

Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA - 6% ABV - Consumed March 27, 2013.

A: pours a clear copper hue with a thick, off-white cap and strands of stringy lacing on the shaker glass. Lively bubbles in the body. Solid looking brew.

S: honeyed wheat cracker, peach, steeped tea, navel orange, herbal hops, slightly earthy and mineral-like aroma, jujube candy, biscuit, faint lemon. Very appealing nose, but closer to an ESB than a US IPA (too mild).

T: peach, honey, pine, green tea, mango, caramel, herbal and zesty hops, lemon, and bread crust. Tastes like an English/US IPA hybrid. Enjoyable and unique.

M: medium bodied, juicy-oily middle, zesty and citric hop bitterness with a clean, drying finish. Simple yet satisfying palate.

O: well-rounded, thirst quenching, above average IPA with some English IPA/ESB elements. Tasty and drinkable even though it’s not exactly on style.
