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.

TheJvd (919) - NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2013
Bottle @ WWT II. Pours hazy golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma is definitely citra hops and the lime can also be detected. Not the typical IJ yeast in the aroma, which is a good thing imo. Taste is fruity hops, lime and a nice bitterness. Nice IPA and finally a beer from ít IJ in which the yeast is not overly present.

Troebel goud van kleur met witte schuimkraag. De geur is citrushop met wat zoet fruitig van limoen. De smaak is bloemig en fris met een bittere nasmaak. Goede IPA. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
