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. Pours hazy golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma is definitely citra hops and the lime can also be detected. Not the typical IJ yeast in the aroma, which is a good thing imo. Taste is fruity hops, lime and a nice bitterness. Nice IPA and finally a beer from ít IJ in which the yeast is not overly present.

33cl bottle Appearance: Orange slightly hazy with a huge offfwhite head. Nicely lasting and lieving quite some lacing. Aroma: Lime, Floral hoppy notes, grapefruit,, a hint of caramel Taste: Moderate sweet and bitter Floral and citrus hops and the refreshing lime notes flow over very nicely in each other. Long duration, there is some nice complexity there creamy texture, Medium body, aoft carbonation.. long duration, sweet The thing here is itís so nicely balanced while remaining true to itís style. The only problem itís only limited available. Luckilly I stocked some up and suprisingly for an IPA it keeps well now even a few months beyond the epire date.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 Batch 2013-15. Murky deep golden color. Beer with 2 kinds of hops. Waimea and Citra. 7% ALC. According to the site of brewery also with Kaffir lime. Beer smells fresh and flowery. The smell of lime is definitely present. Taste Hoppy and bitter with a long aftertaste.

Troebel goud van kleur met witte schuimkraag. De geur is citrushop met wat zoet fruitig van limoen. De smaak is bloemig en fris met een bittere nasmaak. Goede IPA. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mildly sweet, but well balanced with fragrant, herbaceous hops. Fabulous head and rich mouthfeel. Looks gorgeous too. Lovely confluence of delicate, herby/sweet flavors, great palate, and fine touch of hops. I donít usually drink single IPAís, but when I do, I appreciate a classy little number like this one.

Bouteille 33cl. Cuivrée-orangée, trouble. Col épais blanc cassé. Arôme présente un beau bouquet fleuri, houblonné entre pamplemousse et citronné. Amertume agréable pour une IPA avec un profil fruité agrumes très sympa.

One of the best IPAís Iíve ever drank. The kafir lime gives a very fruity and bitter taste.
