Stone Cali-Belgique IPAStone Cali-Belgique IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States
stonebrewing.com

Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Year-round

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

appearance: Clear gold-peach. Decent if non-descript white head.
smell: Very nice blend of fruitiness, and yeasty bread. A hint of strawberry sweet and just a hint of spice.
taste: Very nice again. Much like the nose. Fruity, yeast, some sweetness, a bit of spice.
overall: Stone knows IPA's. Really enjoyed this.
