COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Wow. Great looks, aroma and above all taste. Dark yellow, big lacing white foam head. Hoppy aroma with some floral notes. Bitter taste, some tropical fruit there. Long aftertaste. (Velp 201504)

DutchMark (243) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2015
Very good. Deep amber with a small head and lively carbonation. Flavor has some malts but is dominated by the hops with lots of citrus and grapes. Quite bitter especially for a Dutch ipa. It starts with fruity full flavor and has a long dry bitter resinous finish. Interesting. I like it.

33cl bottle at home. Clear golden amber with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice bitterness with some sweet fruity tones. Pine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, malts, caramel and herbs. A tasty IPA, especially for a Dutch one.

GSAP (572) - NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2015
Sinas, citrus, citrusschil en iets van chemisch, niet onaangenaam, meer artificieel. Dat is de smaak en nasmaak. Aroma is complex van frisse scherpte, muf zoet en overrijp fruit in overvloed. Mooi donkeroranje en troebel.

Beetje verkouden helaas, dus ruik niet zo veel meer. Wel citrus in de smaak, maar niet heel IPA achtig. Iets te bitter en teveel carbo voor mij.

Abijen (1771) - ís-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2015
Goud oranje bier met een goede witte schuim kraag. Ruikt tropisch fruit, zoetig, klein beetje muf. Smaakt fruitig, citrus, bitter. Droog en dun.
