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.

Bottle @ WWT II. Hazy golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is very citrussy, full of lime and can definitely smell the citra. Flavor is quite bitter with a light malty backbone. Very decent IPA, nothing more, nothing less.

dutchbeerpages (1665) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2013
Great aroma, thatís for sure. Incredibly big head, foamy and sticky that stays for quite some time. The first part of the taste is nice and flowery, then it turns a little too bitter, grapefruit style. That remains just a little too long. Bottle from De Bierkoning.

Bottle. Pours hazy dark golden with some sediments, and a very big head. Aroma is bitter hops with pine and forestry notes of ferns and flowers. Creamy body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is quite bitter, all though with sweet notes of apricot, honey and orange before the long citrusy bitterness kicks in through the finish.

Bottle at home in garden, evening, 29th June 2013. Pours murky deep orange, brown. Aroma is yeast is sour notes, yeast, and fruity. Taste is aromatic, the kaffir lime leaves really come through, together with hops and sourness, not sure if sourness is the kaffir lime or not. Unique and very enjoyable IPA.
