Stone Cali-Belgique

Interesting beer as is often the case with Stone.
22oz bomber with the usual Stone screen printed bottle. Thanks go out to BA PatronWizard for the chance to try this one. Stone special releases have not yet made it to GA.
Very nice, light golden pour with the very lightest hint of haze in the clear body. Head is above average but light but it does leave decent lace. Looks strong. Has a Tripel appearance.
Nose is hoppier and more IPAish than the beer drinks. The nose points more toward the West Coast IPA function of the name rather than the Belgian part.
Very smooth and really quite sweet. The hop edge only comes in at the end and in the aftertaste.
Very tasty and easy drinking and pulls off a very nice combo of styles in this relatively newly established hybrid slot.
