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.

Bottle. Copper clear. Good caramel malty, citrusy, slight green, hoppy nose. Dry, nicely bittered body. Toffee, berryish malty flavours. Real nice ipa, probably the best I’be stumbled upon from Germany.

Bottle. 6.1%. Best before 04.10.14. Pours a cloudy amber/orange with an off-white/light tan head. Good lacing. Citrus hop aroma, fat and fruity. Flavour is fat, fruity and hoppy with citrus; feels a bit juicy. Faint sweet liquorice note as it warms. Bitter finish with a sweet liquorice note and a lingering alcohol burn. Overall quite good and well-balanced. 11.07.14.

Bottle, BBE 10/2014. Pours unclear amber in color with a small head. Nutty notes at first in aroma, but also some ripe dark fruits are present. Nutty taste, some bitter grassy notes too and bit of toffee sweetness. Bitter grapefruityness and dry nuttyness in aftertaste. A nice one.

manuelMTL (32) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Hazy orange color with a lasting white head. Nose is grapefruit and caramel. Very sweet. In the mouth it has a long bitterness with strong citrus and grapefruit notes. Strong malt notes. Best German interpretation of a West Coast IPA I’ve tasted so far.

serjaymz (62) - Istanbul, TURKEY - JUN 26, 2014
Şişe @istanbul. Bardakta Maun rengi bulanık bir görüntü ve dolgun yarım oarmağı kalıcı kahverengimdi bir köpük.. Koku kompleks, karamel, aromatik şerbetçiotları, baharat.. Cascade serbetçiotu kullanıldığı belli oluyor, baskın.. Tasım dolgun, gövdeli, başta yumuşak ardından karamel ve kavrulmuş tatlar belirginleşiyor, bitiriş baharatlı ve şerbetçiotu acılığı.. Damakta oldukça kalıcı..
