Samuel Adams Brewery released Latitude 48 last year in a sampler and proved to be a big hit.  Now Sam Adams deconstructed this beer.  Latitude 48 is made with 5 hops.  In this sampler there is the standard Latitude 48 then there are 5 other beers each made with just one hop.  The hop varieties are East Kent Goldings, Ahtanum, Zeus, Simcoe, and Hallertau Mittelfrueh.  I expect these beers to range from lightly flavored to intense.

Party Idea:

I would recommend getting a few people together. Setting out sample cups of all six and comparing them.  I did this with the Mikkeller single hops and had a great time.
