Samuel Adams "Latitude 48 IPA"
India Pale Ale (ABV 6%)

[Best served in a Shaker]

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a very clear medium brown with a slight yellow hue that layed around the edge of the glass. The head was average in size (about 1 to 2 fingers) with a nice rocky appearance that stuck around for a nice while which created some really nice lacing that rolled down the glass as you drank it.

The aroma was a mix of sweet and bitter with a nutty bread malt, a nice resin hop with a mild dose of a sweet yeast and also had notes of citrus and dried fruit.

The flavor had a mild sweet-bitter feel to it with just a hint of dried fruit at first then had an increase in bitterness and a nice hoppy finish with mild citrus note at the end leaving the flavor to hang around for a nice while allowing full enjoyment of this brew.

Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and very dry in texture with a mild carbonation.

Overall a nice balanced IPA with the bitter and sweet working quite well together.

    BrewGuy44 Have you seen the 12 packs of this, it has 2 of the regular IPA and the rest are single hop version of the same beer 5 different hop profiles 2 bottles each. If you see it pick it up. It is a good way to see what a single hop beer tastes like
