May 20, 2011 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
May 20, 2011 –
Latitude 48 IPA is a flavorful IPA brewed with a select blend of hops from renowned German, English, and American growing regions all located close to the 48th latitude. The brew is dry hopped for a powerful citrus and earthy aroma. The assertive but not overpowering hop character is balanced by a slight sweetness and full body from the five different malts.
