Together with chefs Onno Kokmeijer and Arjan Speelman of the Michelin-starred restaurant Ciel Bleu we created this highly tasty I.P.A. The dry-hop with Waimea and Citra hops gives the beer a floral, bitter character and the addition of kaffir lime provides a tropical touch. Completed by a deep golden color, the Ciel Bleu I.P.A. is an irresistable beer. Ciel Bleu I.P.A. is on the menu of restaurant Ciel Bleu and is limited available in our pub.

Dit is een subtiele IPA, niet te sterk van geur vwb de hop, de smaak is iets sterker hoppig maar de citrus overheerst. Ergens in de verte proef je de waimea. De nasmaak is bitter met wat gras en hopsmaak. Lekkere IPA, niet de lekkerste die ik gedronken heb, maar wel bijzonder.

Spicey lemongrass like hops, fresh chopped grass. Nice carbonation. Full bodied, sweet and hazy hop flavours, bread and roasted malts. Very well balanced with a great kick of hops!

This is a really good IPA. It has a great combination of hoppy bitter and a very nice lively fruity aroma. Love it!

UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 33cl bottle Appearance: Orange slightly hazy with a smal offfwhite head. Aroma: Some hoppy bitterness for the 2015 version (No longer the lime, and floral touches. No its now a murky bitterness) Taste: The new 201 version has just some murky hoppy bitternesss and some light koriander in the finish. Long lasting bitterness. However the original had a very nice complexity fruity floral, lime twist. Which is now totally ruined. oily texture, Medium body, soft carbonation.. The current 2015 is really dissapointing a mediocre IPA. What was once on my favourite IPAs.. After this mess I opened up a old one, still have some stock and while beyond its best before date it tastes so much better. So why is Brouwerij TIJ screwing over their IPAs, they used to be so good but both new batches were bad this evening. 2014-8-4-9-4-19 2015 6-3-6-3-11

Bottled 330ml Peta1. Thanks bierkoning!
Batch 2013-15. Hazy dark amber color, huge off-white head. Exotic fruity (waimea?) aroma, not very intensive. Medium-bodied. "Microbrewish" yeasty tropical fruity flavor with some gooseberries. Sweetish note in the finish. Solid and interesting brew from t IJ.
