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 (368) - Vienna Woods, - 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!

Swaroga (1393) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo jest delikatnie zamglone o kolorze pomarańczowym. Piana jest średniej wielkości o kolorze białym. NOS : aromat jest świeży i mocno cytrusowy. Biszkopt, grejpfrut, mango, marakuja i skórka pomarańczy. USTA : mocno nasycone piwo o konsystencji podobnej do soku pomarańczowego. Ogólnie jest to piwo świeże i mocno aromatyczne o dominujących nutach owocowych. Przypomina mi smak biszkopta popijanego gorzką herbatą zieloną i sokiem z okrutnie gorzkiego grejpfruta. Posmak jest podobny do skórki pomelo. ODCZUCIA : bardzo udane IPA na styl amerykańskich klasyków. Świeże i łatwe w piciu. Trochę jak Session IPA. Aromaty i smaki cytrusowe są świetnie podkreślone. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : +1

Benzai (8545) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle shared by Erwin Van Moll @ Van Moll Brewpub. Lightly hazy dark orange to reddish color, medium sized white to off-white head. Aroma is lightly malts, floral, hops, mandarin, blossom, fruit hops, tropical fruits. Taste unfortunately is not nearly as good. Still decent: some hops and decently bitter. But due to way too much carbonation the flavors are subdued and basically only lightly malts and bitterness survive. Too bad.

On tap at hopfenreich berlin. Huge hop aroma from the dry hopping. A very earthy grassy piney hop aroma. The taste is crisp with strong hop bitterness. My type of ipa...

TET (1686) - FINLAND - SEP 17, 2014
A dark orange colour, a head is almost white and medium. The nose has grapefruits, some tropical nuancees, nice fructose, hint of chalk and pine needles. Taste is strongly piney, sour grapefruits, tight bitterness, resin in the end. Medium bodied, quite strong carbonation. Strongly hopped, but still not totally succesfully, more fruits and smoother palate would be better.
