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.

Clear golden color with a big foamy white head. Belgian style yeast, fruits, mild yoghurt sourness, sweetness and mild hops in the aroma. The flavor is yeast, yeasty bitterness, some hops, moderate hoppy bitterness, mild tartness, some dryness and some malt. Quite nice.

Hopmaestro (1398) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2016
Aroma is light sweet with hints of light yeasty caramel and mild hop scents. Slight marzipan sensation. Taste is low key hops, laidback malt profile and estery fruit notes. Slight harshness and a little grainy mouthfeel. After a while a slight woody and grassy effect kicks in. This is a beer for dudes that have lost the interest in super-fruity IPA’s and want some more rustic stuff.

danielst (372) - AUSTRIA - NOV 8, 2016
33cl can. Blonde color. Fruity orange, banana and bubblegum aroma, pretty much a hoppy tripel. More hoppiness on the palate, hemp and pine. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, quite bitter but not as bracingly bitter as Ruination. Usually not too fond of yeasty esters/hefeweizen-type flavors, but this is really nice.

An IPA with Belgian yeast. I normally find Belgian styles made outside Belgium to be lacking, this isn’t.
