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.

Travlr (26132) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Tap at Churchkey. Clear golden with a fluffy white head that settles quickly and leaves delicate lacing. Aroma of black pepper and malt. Malt dominates the taste as well, but it’s plenty hoppy, and a nice background of light spice. Good one.

Slightly hazy amber beer, good white head. Palate is medium soft with a semi dry finish. Wonderfully integrated hops that are very well behaved without being wimpy. Grapefruit, sweet orange and pineapple followed by a minty coolness. Very smooth delightful IPA.
