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.

Fisler (90) - GERMANY - MAR 1, 2015
Schön perlig im Glas, Goldene Farbe, stabiler Schaum. In der Nase ordentlich Frucht, Grapefruit und Zitrus. Im Trunk erst eine deutliche Mattheit, sehr ungewöhnlich, dann kommt die Fruchtigkeit durch, leichte Malzigkeit. Im Abgang trocken, alkoholisch. Schwierig einzuschätzen.

Received as part of Euroswap from Beerhunter111 - thanks! Pours a dark orange with a huge white head which recedes to a small layer, coating the glass in the process. Sweet, tropical mango and caramel notes in the aroma. Taste is similar to aroma, sweet mango, slight caramel and medium bitter finish. Full bodied with a rich mouthfeel.

0.33L bottle at home. Orange outer color with a dark Amber interior. Smell is sweet with intense floral hops. Taste is not as nice as BKK amarsi - though granted I'm not a huge grapefruit fan. Sweetness fades very quickly into a grapefruity bitterness though it's not overly intense. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at the Goose Island tasting, De Molen, Jan 2015. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy broken white head. The aroma is yeast, grassy pine needle citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light, watery yeast, hop bitter palate. Moderate to light bodied with average carbonation.
