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.

sebletitje (8116) - 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.

(Draught at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam, 29 Aug 2015) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, toast and hints of burnt rubber. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, rye bread, orange peel, resin and a generous citric, resiny bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and well balanced IPA. Nice one.

caesar (5971) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2013
Bottled., batch 2013-15. Hazy to cloudy amber color, huge thick off-white head. Soft hoppy aroma, tropical fruit, bit spicy and yeasty. I’m smelling something weird fruity, which probably is the lime, not as citrussy, but more slight soapy and a hint of bubblegum. Quite bitter in taste, seriously bitter actually in contrast to a lot of bad other Dutch "IPAs". Good fruity, quite dry, but with enough caramel malt in the back to carry the bitterness. Quite high on carbonation.
