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.

tmrmwel (1172) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2013
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.

CraftBeerNick (1144) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2013
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.

RW80 (1107) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 33cl bottle Appearance: Orange slightly hazy with a smal offfwhite head. Aroma: Some hoppy bitterness for the 2015 version (No longer the lime, and floral touches. No itís now a murky bitterness) Taste: The new 201 version has just some murky hoppy bitternesss and some light koriander in the finish. Long lasting bitterness. However the original had a very nice complexity fruity floral, lime twist. Which is now totally ruined. oily texture, Medium body, soft carbonation.. The current 2015 is really dissapointing a mediocre IPA. What was once on my favourite IPAís.. After this mess I opened up a old one, still have some stock and while beyond itís best before date it tastes so much better. So why is Brouwerij TíIJ screwing over their IPAís, they used to be so good but both new batches were bad this evening. 2014-8-4-9-4-19 2015 6-3-6-3-11
