Stone Cali-Belgique IPA (Cali-België)

RATINGS: 1787   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.7/5   IBU: 77   EST. CALORIES: 207   ABV: 6.9%
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.

dnicolaescu (2269) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 3, 2017
CAN 33 CL. Hazy deep golden, soapy white head. The aroma is right in the middle between a fruity and spicy Belgian Ale and citrusy hops. Same with the taste - hints of stone fruit and spicy alcohols on one hand, sweet citrus and caramel malts on the other. Spicy peppery bitterness. Not bad, not sure the hybrid improves on either of the original styles.

Can. Clear golden color, airy white head. Spicy hop aroma. Fruity flavor with some bready malts, hop bitterness and aniseed (cough syrup?). Alcohol in the finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. I think I prefer the "other sister".

lello4ever (794) - ITALY - DEC 23, 2016
Dorata con schiuma a grana media. Aroma un po strano con nota di lievito, floreale. Al palato è piatta con poca nota luppolata e più carattere belga. Corpo medio con alcol avvertibile. Forse lattina non in forma, da bere di nuovo.
