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 (25472) - 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 IPAís. 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.

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 ít IJ.
