What's on the Can: "Brewed with Motueka, Citra, and Mosaic hops for Belmont Station's 22nd anniversary."

Where distributed: Culmination Brewing can be found in the Pacific Northwest. It slowly but surely has expanded throughout the Portland area.

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy peach-colored into a pint glass. Unfiltered, sediment at the bottom of the can. White head, good lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Pleasing tropical citrus and ripe stone fruit with complementing oaty malts. Slight resinous notes. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose. Tropical stone fruit mixed with resin and creamy malt at the start. Aftertaste features more tropical. More one-note and not as assertive on tropical flavor as some other NE-style beers I've had. Still, very refreshing. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, good carbonation. Creamy and very juicy with trace dry tongue. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding Double IPA. Lovely brew here that drinks right around its stated 8% ABV. Happy 22nd anniversary to Belmont Station! 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.35/5
