33cl bottle from Albert Heijn, Amsterdam Centraal Station.<\i> A slightly hazy amber pour with a loose white head; subdued tropical fruit aroma; sharp, immediately bitter taste that’s both fruity and woody; and a clean crisp dry bitter finish. Very good. ischas (741) - - JUL 20, 2017

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2017 Jopen’s take on the modern IPA, from a bottle at Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Thick, dense, creamy, off-white, cobweb-lacing head over a misty peach blonde beer with ochre-ish tinge. Aroma is unfortunately incapacitated by an unmistakable bacterial infection, which - mixed with the Mosaic - results in impressions of sour oranges, wet earth or mud, dust, spoiled milk and egg yolk, through which the delicate mango- and passionfruit-like hops still pierce, but obviously this is not the way it was intended... Same for the taste: fruity and estery, more so than is acceptable for an IPA, hints of sour passionfruit, unripe gooseberries, fermenting apples and tangerine, spritzy carbo (too much so), very earthy yeastiness throughout, ’dirty’, over a bready malt sweetish middle - the sweetness evidently ruined by the sourness of the infection. Citrusy and mildly tropical aromatic hoppiness is still there in the end, but it too gets lost in this dirty, souring (even very lightly vinegary) infection effect. Too bad, Craftmember told me he drinks this regularly and deems it an excellent IPA, but in this condition, it is of course not representative for what it intends to be. I probably should not rate it because of the infection, but I have nothing else to base my opinion on so this rating is inherently biased - but I will certainly revisit this when I come across it in prime and uninfected condition. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2017
Golden, quite clear. Nice Mosaic hop, pine, spruce, melon. Modern hops and fermentation. Very drinkable, surprisingly bitter. Quality brew if perhaps a touch simple in aftertaste. Good brew! (33cl bottle from AH Stevenshof) blariacum (150) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2017
Fles. Verdomd goede IPA. Sterke geur, sterke, volle smaak, bitter. Goede afdronk (beetje zoetig op einde - maïs?). full body, very bitter, light sweetness, MelvinKalksma (1577) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2017

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, pine, hops and citrus.
Turbid/opaque amber/orange beer with a slight/medium off-white head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Lovely sweet flavours full of orange and tropical fruit with even some pine. Great amount of hops at the end and a great appearance and palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger however.
Bottle at home, orange beer, small head. Aroma is citrus, hops, malt, grassy. Taste is the same, bitter dry, decent ipa
