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.

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.

Beetje verkouden helaas, dus ruik niet zo veel meer. Wel citrus in de smaak, maar niet heel IPA achtig. Iets te bitter en teveel carbo voor mij.

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

tricksta_p (1658) - 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?

33cl bottle at home from Bertís Bierhuis Biltstraat, Utrecht. Body is clear golden orange, head is small, off-white, fizzy, fully diminishing, fair lacing. Nose is spicy, fruity, flavor is spices, quinine, herbs, fruits, pine, black tea. Light sweet, heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting hoppy quinine heavy bitter. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation. Not too easy, strong unusual bitter flavor, interesting hoppy IPA.

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!
