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)

Smells nice, little citrus and some caramel. Kinda soft carbonation though, and the mouthfeel is a little watery. Nice hint of some toasted malt though. Darker than I expected. Not bad.

Maakun (2363) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear orange golden with cream colored head. Grassy, hay, tangerines, lots of grapefruit skins, light citrus juice, resin. Just massive citrus skin and hay basically, with light caramel maltiness underneath. Under medium sweet and strong bitter. Medium bodied with oily feel. Nice but very bitter.

Pours muddy copper with huge chunks of yeast. Impossible to leave the sediment in the bottle with this one. Fruity, biscuity aroma. Loads of tropical fruit flavours, plenty of citrus, decent malt backbone, a little caramel, topped off by a heavy bitter finish. Looks ugly as sin, never seen as much yeast floating in a beer, but tastes great.

Hopfig, zitronig. Schön rotbraune Farbe, stabile nicht zu große Schaumkrone. Angenehm gehopfter typischer IPA Geschmack. Kurzer Nachgeschmack.

jamestulloch (2704) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle from Deeside Drinks Emporium. Hazy amber body with lots of yeast chunks floating below a thin off-white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of peach, caramel and orange. Flavour of grass, juicy hops and lime chutney. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Looks like pea soup but it smells and tastes like a quality IPA.

Markth (108) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2015
Licht troebel goud. Geur is goed, bloemen. Smaak is vrij straf bitter, net iets te. Als het bier opwarmt komt er iets meer bloesem tevoorschijn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McSherman (429) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2015
Farbe: orange-braun mit einigen Schwebstoffen und hellem Schaum. Aroma: süßlich - malzig, leicht fruchtig und Zirben Geschmack: anfangs dominiert der süße Malzkörper, dann treten die bitteren und fuchtigen Hopfennoten in den Vordergrund. Beides harmoniert perfekt! Langer bitterer Abgang. Empfehlung!

0,33l Flasche. Farbe orange braun, viel fester heller Schaum. Kräuter, Malz Hopfen und etwas Hustensaft in der Nase. Malzig herber Antrunk. Viel Kräuter langer Abfang. Wenig Kohlensäure, leicht cremig. Runder Geschmack.
