COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours golden with very little white head, bubbly. Hoppy smell, but very much Belgian after the hops. Smells like a heavy Saison. Tastes like hops way out front with some citrus. Funky, earthy taste follows. Dry finish. Distinctly a Belgian taste, but an IPA is in there, popping out to say hello.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 27, 2010
22oz bottle. Poured a bright golden orange with a white soapy head. Smells of yeast, hops, orange zest, citrus, spices, grass and sweet malt. Taste has a crisp big hop bite with pineapple, citrus, grass, spices, bubblegum and yeast. Nice dry hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation.

Pours a clear deep gold with white fluffy head. Aroma of hoppy citrus, horse blanket, a bit wild and malt. Flavor is very much the same with a hoppy bite. Mouth feel is medium body with lively carbonation. Good stuff!

Very nice aroma of alpha hoppiness and earthiness; attractive pour with frothy almost cascading head; taste is complex rich; nice IPA backbone with Belgian funkiness lingering on the palate; unique and very good brew

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2010
22oz bomber. Poured a dark straw colored body with a ring of ivory head that left a lot of nice lacing. Aromas of lemony hops and some pepper. A little soapy and herbal. Flavor of lemons, citrus and herbal hops. Light fruity sweetness and a piney/medicinal finish. Fine, soft carbonation and a medium/full mouthfeel.

from a 22 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow. Aroma is more hoppy but belgian is definitely there. Taste is smooth like a Belgian but with a slightly bitter hop taste. A good mix. Pretty nice beer.
