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.

matty (279) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a white head that settles to a film. Aroma is spicy yeast with a touch of Belgian sourness. Taste is a good balance of malt and hops with the sour taste on the side. Finish is slightly dry, the yeast comes through as well. Good beer!

Quick3Beers (527) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Pours an amber from a bottle. Weird but okay amalgamation of hoppy west coast IPA made with Belgian fuzzy yeast. Big heavy bitter hops throughout, with a quick thinning out and a lingering general bitterness. Good beer.

flying_pig (1254) - SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2015
355ml bottle from Brewdog online shop (£3.50):
Another outstanding Stone beer &despite being a bit past its ’enjoy by’ date but it has managed to hold up very well and still seemed fresh, crisp & quite lively with good carbonation levels. The beer went down very well with a good balance & had plenty of yeast giving that Belgian twist; I’m already on the look out for this one again & hopefully I’ll be able to get hold of a fresher bottle next time round.

kingaugusta (51) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Pours slightly golden blonde and hazy with a decently frothy white head. Nose is restrained for an IPA made by the gents at Stone, with modest hops and a touch of sweetness. Flavor is similar; this is a drinkable and balanced IPA but there’s nothing particularly stand-out about it either. Belgian yeast is slightly present but doesn’t really add anything. Good but just that...good.

@ SBWF 2015: Sista ölen på festivalen 2015 - har noterad att den är mycket humlerik med undertoner av alkohol. Gott men inte på topp.
