Style: Belgian IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
A California-style IPA with a Belgian twist
AKA Stone Cali-Belgiƫ IPA
First Release:
September 2008

Stone Cali-Belgique IPA features a complex and surprising combination of flavors, but behind the fancy title is the simply delicious Stone IPA. The addition of a carefully selected strain of Belgian yeast adds banana and spice notes to the hoppy brightness of our flagship IPA. Think of it as an otherwise identical twin to Stone IPA that was raised in a Belgian culture. Literally.

Pours a slightly orange hued golden yellow with a fair amount of airy carbonation that dissipates rapidly, but leaves gentle lacing.

Bready/biscuity malt sweetness, light citrus, slight funk, spice, and that familiar Belgian yeast sweetness.

Grapefruit, banana, clove/spice, bubblegum, and biscuity toasted malts.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, soft, playful carbonation, and very smooth.

Overall, this is a delicious take on the Belgian IPA style.
