COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(German) Dieses IPA offenbart ein verlockendes Aroma aus Kiefer und Citrus und einem Touch an malziger Süße. Laguna IPA bringt alleine durch seine Hopfen einen wunderschönen Geschmack zu Tage und die Braumeister haben es auf der herben Seite angelegt. Es lässt die waldigen und citrus Hopfen durchschimmern.

Editor’s note: IBU increased from 60 to 74 and ABV went from 6.6 to 6.2 (late 2013)

Saeglopur (157) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark copper, hazy body, with a big, frothy, white head, that leaves some lacing. Aroma of strawberry, flowers, tangerine, citrus, grass, biscuit. Taste is bitter, with grapefruit, pine, resin, also some red fruits, strong malt backbone, with grass, biscuit, some herbs. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes strong bitter, dry, with grapefruit peel, pine, grass, herbs. Nice, interesting! While the smell is sweet, fruity and malty, the taste has a pretty harsh hop bite, but also a strong malt backbone to balance the bitter, piney notes. Another very good IPA by this brewery!

dnicolaescu (537) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 28, 2014
BOTTLE 33CL from BeerHunter111. Thanks, Hans Peter! Look: quite hazy dark copper with an orange-beige head. Aroma: quite spicy and resiny hops (is it Chinook?) that don’t last long, caramel, tart fruitiness. Taste: juicy caramel, solid and clean bitterness, tart fruity notes.

Vaiz (3149) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of floral hops, some resin, quite spicy, some citrus and lemon peel. Flavor is quite creamy fruity hops, smooth but also with a slightly sharp edge. Well made with character.

esox (973) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bottled. Dark amber, brownish colot, big head. Nice, very fresh hop aroma has sweet tangerines, mango, some green grapes and floral notes. Malty, medium dry flavor with pale caramel and biscuit flavors in the finish. Round, but effective and intensifying bitterness. Resiny, long aftertaste. Very nice balance. Medium body, silky but maybe slightly overcarbonated texture.

heintz (14) - GERMANY - MAR 21, 2014
The fruity character is missing or better Not as expected. But nevertheless it s just a copy of ca IPA. So Not Bad for a German IPA. The Other braukunstkeller beers are better though.

sturmthis (231) - USA - MAR 20, 2014
33ml bottle. Grapefruit aroma. Dark red color. Dry aftertaste and weaker taste than expected. Not bad for a German take on an IPA.

bartlebier (1195) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2014
2x33cl bb 06/2014 over 2 months. Pours a brackish black tea with shy lively head. Contained, Not all that much of a fruity or exotic nose, some malt fumes. All of this beer’s stakes are in a very rich and harmonious interplay of C-hops and above all nice integration of Chinook: pine and resin has a sharp, but tasty edge here. Part of the fruit salad: pickled grapefruit, peach peel, indeed spruce, as suggested. Back is quite some caramalt, but the yeast is working hard to keep it all dry. Appreciate the balance, especially considering the potentially harsh centennials and chinooks - but this remains very much a DE/US crossover.
