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.

Aroma is nice, with lime, some resin, clean yeast. But taste is sweet and astringent. Not great.

rikstar (2124) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2016 0,33l fles bij de biertuin. Goudoranje met een witte kraag. Geur is aardbei en perzik. Smaak is mooi bitterzoet fruitig, met perzik, pruimen tabak en gist in de afdronk. Nice al valt het wel iets buiten het genre imperial stout

fkoolen (926) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle at home. Light copper colour, offwhite creamy head. Crisp piny, orange zest and bitter lemon hop profile, faintly tropical fruity too, sweet malty base giving a good body. Good lengthy finish. Medium body, oily palate.

MarcoDL (3980) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle. Golden pour, white head. Aroma is very bitter and grassy, with yeast and pine. Taste of bitter herbs, lime, sharp grass and hops in the finish. First beer with waimea thatís not nasty. Not very interesting though.

adamnowek (1737) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Really subtle taste of lime. Pretty well hopped. Typical mild cloudiness and a good semi-dry texture.
