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.
