Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA Brewed by the Boston Beer Company


Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA Brewed by the Boston Beer Company - Boston, MA                      

Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA is a unique IPA brewed with a select blend of hops from top German, English, and American growing regions all located close to the 48th latitude within the “hop belt” of the Northern Hemisphere. The combination of hops in this beer creates a distinctive but not overpowering hop character. The beer is dry hopped with Ahtanum, Simcoe®*, and East Kent Goldings hops for a powerful citrus and earthy aroma. The hop character is balanced by a slight sweetness and full body from the malt blend.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Pours fairly crystal clear orange amber color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Some nice spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of orange, herbal, grapefruit, floral, pineapple, mango, caramel, bread, earth, and light pine. Pretty nice and well balanced aromas with good strength. Taste of orange, caramel, bread, herbal, floral, grapefruit, pine, earth, pineapple, mango, and light toast. Fair amount of herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, herbal, floral, tropical fruit, caramel, and light pine on the finish for a bit. Good balance of malt, hop flavor, and bitterness; with the maltiness being slightly more prominent that what is normal for an IPA. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. Not over the top hoppy like most people would prefer; but has nice balance and hop flavor, and is very drinkable. Very enjoyable stuff.
    

                        
Boston Beer Company Story

The Boston Beer Company began in 1984 with a generations-old family recipe that Founder and Brewer Jim Koch uncovered in his father's attic. After bringing the recipe to life in his kitchen, Jim brought it to bars in Boston with the belief that drinkers would appreciate a complex, full-flavored beer, brewed fresh in America. That beer was Samuel Adams Boston Lager(R), and it helped catalyze what became known as the American craft beer revolution.

Today, the Company brews more than 30 styles of beer. The Company uses the traditional four vessel brewing process and often takes extra steps like dry-hopping and a secondary fermentation known as krausening. It passionately pursues the development of new styles and the perfection of its classic beers by constantly searching for the world's finest ingredients. While resurrecting traditional brewing methods, the Company has earned a reputation as a pioneer in another revolution, the "extreme beer" movement, where it seeks to challenge drinkers' perceptions of what beer can be. The Boston Beer Company strives to elevate the image of American craft beer by entering festivals and competitions the world over, and in the past five years it has won more awards in international beer competitions than any other brewery in the world. The Company remains independent, and brewing quality beer remains its single focus. While Samuel Adams is the country's largest-selling craft beer, it accounts for only about one-half of one percent of the U.S. beer market.
