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.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Bottled. This one goes out to the memory of my dear friend Miia (angsta here on RB) who passed away one week ago and loved IPA’s. Hazy orangeish brown colour, mediumsized beige foamy head. Aroma is grassy, fruity and floral notes with some slight yeast and grainy notes. Flavour is fruity, herbal, grassy, tropical fruits and also quite nicely bitter with some resiny notes to it. Beautifully balanced and pleasant bitterness. A beautifully balanced beer.

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.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2013
Bouteille 33cl, BB 12/2013. Cuivrée-orangée, fine opacité, col épais blanc cassé. Arôme présente un beau bouquet fleuri, houblonné sur un tropical oscillant entre pamplemousse et citronné. Le malt reste en ajout rétro-nasal. Palais est malté moyen pâle avec, et cela m’a surpris, une pointe subtile de fumé. Amertume reste agréable pour une IPA avec un profil fruité agrumes très agréable. Retrouve ici des notes caractéristiques d’agrumes et un fini sec de houblonnage à cru. Légère note de pion en retrait.

lusikka (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a murky orange colour with a massive white foamy head. Aroma of floral hop, citrus and grass. Flavour of floral hops, strong tart citrus, grass, English toffee, yeast and some maltiness. Medium bodied, high carbonation and a lingering bitter, floral, citrusy finish. A tad too much carbonation, but other than a nicely hopped citrusy IPA
