When reading the name “Stone Cali-Belgique IPA”, “Cali” hints that it is a California style IPA, and this brew has an undeniable Belgian influence, indicated by the word “Belgique” (which is how Belgium’s French-speaking population says the word “Belgian”; the Dutch speaking Belgians say “Belgie”). We carefully selected a Belgian yeast strain that illuminates a fascinating new aspect of the beer that is otherwise quite simply Stone IPA.

The result is both completely new and different, while still being recognizable as a Stone Brew – and Stone IPA in particular. Think of it as an otherwise identical twin to Stone IPA that was raised in a Belgian culture. Literally.

jksipa (565) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Hazy medium gold with a small off white head that fades quickly to a sheet and leaves nice lace. Nose is sweet toffee and honey with citrus and grass over some yeast and notes of coriander. Light sweet honey start leading to the regular Stone IPA bitter middle but with a bit of spiciness. Medium chewy mouth with average carbonation and a long bitter finish. Nice but the spice and yeast actually detracts from the base IPA.

Achel (240) - GREECE - SEP 21, 2015
An unclear golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of spices - mainl coriander, but also with medium notes of yeast and peaches. The flavor is also sweet and very spicy - again coriander coming strongest, combined with notes of peaches, leading to a dry spicy finish.

rondphoto (3036) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 20, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy light/medium amber color, solid white head cover, full curtain of lace. Aroma of malt and light hops. Taste is brisk malt that adds carbonation and caramel on the swallow, then turns just bitter enough at the end to bring things back from a "Blue Moon" type brew to something more complex. Solid brew with a medium hop kick. Recommended.
