Stone Cali-Belgique IPA
Another beer I tried while at the Stone Brewery is the Cali-Belgique IPA. The beer has a light golden color with a filmy white head. The smell is sweet and fruity, mostly consisting of grape with a light orange accent. The taste is sweet and filled with grape and orange flavors. The beer finishes with a peppery hop bite. The alcohol content is 5.0% ABV. I thoroughly enjoyed this IPA, as it strayed quite a bit from your run-of-the-mill IPA. Instead of lemon fruit accents, the orange and grape really made this beer enjoyable.
