Product Review: Samuel Adams Latitude 48 – Zeus

Our final installment in the Latitude 48 ‘Deconstructed’ reviews series is “Zeus.” Though Zeus, in mythology is the “Father of Gods and men,” the hop with the same name really wasn’t our favorite. The color seemed to lack the brightness that the other single-hopped Latitude beers had. That “glowing” amber or orange hue wasn’t as apparent even though it still had the signature IPA copper color characteristic and off white head. The zeus hop, most commonly used for bittering has a very floral aroma.
