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.

peponi (430) - POLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Aroma: citrus (mango), pine and resin -- really intensive. Appearance: hazy amber color, nice white head. Taste: high bitterness, only resin and pine, which is quite one-dimensional, really light malty backbone, heather. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter astringent finish. Overall: I expected something more then one-dimensional IPA. It is really decent, but there is lack of something more.

Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma has pine, tropical fruits. Hazy, orange coloured beer, with a firm, off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter, almost clean, has pine, citrus, some biscuity malts. Easy drinking. Very good. Guess this is the first good German IPA I had ever. :-)

Swaroga (1423) - 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 (8748) - 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.
