About the beer:
Released in early 2010, the Sam Adams Latitude 48 IPA is a unique IPA brewed with a blend of hops from German, English, and American growing regions located close to the 48th latitude, widely considered the the “hop belt” of the Northern Hemisphere. While the Sam Adams gang has tip-toed around the American IPA style, this new release by the brewery, who have previously only brewed one other now-discontinued IPA, jumps right into the conversation with a 6% ABV and hoppy authority. Originally available in the 2010 Sam Adams summer styles mix pack, the Latitude 48 IPA now comes in six pack and draft offerings where available.
