Beer: Cali-Belgique
Style: IPA
Brewery: Stone Brewing Co.
Location: Escondido, CA
Website: http://www.stonebrew.com/
Serving Type: 1 Pt. 6 Fl.Oz.
ABV: 6.9 ABV
IBU: 77
Pour: Smooth pour with a nice head and even thick legs.

Smell: This beer smells hoppy, floral and even malty smell.

Taste: The Stone Brewery Co. is my favorite brewery hands down. Stone Brewery have yet to disappoint me, this beer was another impressive beer. The beer is so well balanced, but it is still a strong complex IPA.

Drinkability: As I mentioned earlier this beer is well balanced and therefore I could drink about two bombers of this fine brew. Many of the IPA's that I have tried are not well balanced and therefore lose their enjoyment about one glass in.

One of my favorite beers of all time. I first had this beer about two years ago and I am just now finally reviewing it. Belgian IPA's are one of the newest, yet best styles of beer around today. Cali Belgique does not only set the standard for this style it almost makes it impossible to replicate. From a bottle it pours a nice and golden with a two inch white head. This beer not only satisfies the quench of belgian beer fans but hop heads as well. The aroma is complete with a belgian/pine combination. I started out as a novice beer drinker, soley focused on Belgian styles but once my pallet for IPA's devopled this beer was able to my beer needs from all angles. Drink this beer and appreciate all it represents. Dare to try another Belgian IPA once other Brewers attempt such a style. Cheers.
