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.

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?

Dit is een subtiele IPA, niet te sterk van geur vwb de hop, de smaak is iets sterker hoppig maar de citrus overheerst. Ergens in de verte proef je de waimea. De nasmaak is bitter met wat gras en hopsmaak. Lekkere IPA, niet de lekkerste die ik gedronken heb, maar wel bijzonder.

Spicey lemongrass like hops, fresh chopped grass. Nice carbonation. Full bodied, sweet and hazy hop flavours, bread and roasted malts. Very well balanced with a great kick of hops!

This is a really good IPA. It has a great combination of hoppy bitter and a very nice lively fruity aroma. Love it!

RW80 (1093) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
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.
