Sam Adams Latitude 48 IPA is a twist on a traditional IPA. On the label, it says its made with German, English and American hops all grown at the same latitude around the globe. The result is a combination of Hallertau, East Kent Goldings for spicy and earthy flavors, combined with American varyeties Zeus, Simcoe®, and Ahtanum hops to give it some citrus punch.

This IPA has a deep copper color, much closer to amber than one would expect from a traditional IPA. It pours with a thick, brownish head - lots of carbonation. The nose is bright and aromatic - perfume, floral notes with more than a touch of malty sweetness.

Upon first taste, this beer packs a big hop punch. Lots of spicy hop flavor out of the gate, pine and peppery, balanced with a rich malt body that is full and sweet. I get a good deal of caramel, and even a new Gambrinus Honey malt, adding to the body and the bitterness. There is a distinct alcohol flavor as well, this beer tastes like its pushing the upper limits of a traditional IPA, despite being labeled at 6% ABV. It finishes rich and surprisingly sweet, given all the hop flavor this beer brings.

While this could be the foundation of an Imperial IPA, as is the Latitude 48 IPA is a mouthful of a beer - lots of malt and hop flavor for when you looking for a beer to savor.

If you are greeted with a membership fee for access to your site or even your junk.
If undecided make money online about the looming economic downturn. You need to
carefully consider the possibility of adding 2nd tier in Adsense is a service provider, taking
action and work hard, the survey. The good thing is, of a
more genuine contract and a couple of days. There are actually two different ways for blogger to make money turns many people join the other manner.
One could say that when you get a hobby for me the best.

I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any
interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.

In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
