I picked Sam Adams Latitude 48 for a couple of reasons:
- I needed something milder in the fridge for my wife to drink.
- It was one of the few Sam Adams I haven’t had a chance to drink yet.
The liquor store I stopped in didn’t have a great selection, but I do kind of wish I would have gone with my gut and picked up the Smutty Nose IPA (I was guessing that would be too hoppy for the misses).
Now this doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good beer. It goes down crisp and smooth and it certainly won’t hang in the fridge for long…but there just wasn’t much of a hook to it.
As for my wife, she liked it as well (especially compared to the Golden Monkey we had next) however, she still prefers the DogFish Head 60 minute IPA.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
