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.

MarcoDL (2826) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle. Golden pour, white head. Aroma is very bitter and grassy, with yeast and pine. Taste of bitter herbs, lime, sharp grass and hops in the finish. First beer with waimea thatís not nasty. Not very interesting though.

PotjeBier (1973) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Copper color, ever so slightly hazy. Big, very dense off white head with long retention and good lacing. Aromaís of piney/resinous hops, citrus, and typical IJ yeast. Retronasal the hop aromaís are harsher, bitter. Flavor is rather bitter, earthy, with a light acidity. Body is medium. Quite high carbonation. Long bitter finish

tricksta_p (1868) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2015
Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, floral notes, some yeast, pine, perfumed notes, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a bitter finish. Bit sweetish and yeasty IPA, forestry aroma. Iím betting itís the Waimea?

dutchbeerpages (1820) - 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.

Goud oranje bier met een goede witte schuim kraag. Ruikt tropisch fruit, zoetig, klein beetje muf. Smaakt fruitig, citrus, bitter. Droog en dun.

Bottle thanx to dutchdrebus. Orange but not clear and a offwhite head. Smells and tastes hoppy, fresh, fruity. Nice.
