Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
In short: A thin, dry and piney blonde IPA. Good thirst beer.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed relatively fresh not long after receiving it from blankboy, thanks a lot Paul.
The look: Cloudy pale-blonde body topped by a little white white.
In long: The hoppy aromatic nose of medium intensity is mostly piney with littles spicy-cedar-like notes I often get from this hops, that’s a Chinook IPA alright. Mouthfeel is a bit lackluster but still acceptable, somehow a bit thinner than other Bellwoods Monogamy ales I’ve had (?) and with a carbonation that is relaxed to medium. Taste has timid crackery malts, some fermentation-related fruity flavors of bananas and others, bright piney hops. Clean bitterness of medium intensity with a very dry (almost astringent) finish. I’ve always loved this good old fashion Chinook hops but somehow this beer was my least favorite of the Bellwoods Monogamy series. A pretty good beer but not up to the usual Bellwoods hoppy beers standards. Monogamy is a nice concept, love between two persons is truly a beautiful thing, but love between eight persons or more people simultaneously sells a lot more DVDs.

[5623-20130811] 500mL bottle. Mild yeasty herb hops aroma. Hazy, light orange body with a quick foamy white head. Bitter citrus resin hops flavour. Medium body has a nice bitter base. Delicious, shows off the hops well. (8/4/8/4/16) 4.0

tom10101 (3012) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle (500 ml). Thanks to Sammy for this one! Slightly hazy yellow golden with a small quickly diminishing white head and leaves a small foam ring. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, herbal notes and light pine. Taste is about the same with a light soapy presence and light bitterness. Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly oily and dry. Good American Pale Ale. Really drinkable and quite refreshing.

Sampled this at Campground Brewdown 2. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized whice head. Soft and musky citrus on the nose. Sweet citrus with a bit of musk, toast, faint wheat. Soft musk and citrus into a bit of yeast and bitterness on the finish.

2013-08-11. Bright pastel orange body, nice off white head. Flavour is quite nice, pleasant citrus and tropical fruit touches. Moderate bitterness throughout. Aroma has similar citrus and tropical fruit hop character. Smooth average bodied palate is effervescent which suits it. 3+ Very nice and quite drinkable. Lovely stuff. Bottle from Bellwoods, Toronto

Sammy (8849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Drinkable pale, lemony hops. Aggressively carbonated, that effects mouthfeel. Some hop aroma. Not the best of the series, particularly compared to 4C’s had laterally. Had on tap and a bit less of an edge of carbonation, more hop aroma and bitter taste.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2013
Deep golden pour with some light haziness. A bit of bright citrusy hoppiness and some lovely lemon and grapefruit. A little bit of pine as well. Lovely balance with a nice full creamy mouthfeel. A nice bright juiciness as well. Solid IPA

blankboy (6197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head and lacing on the glass. Nice fruity, piney aroma, a good amount of hops here along with bready malt, herbal notes and light spices. Flavour is hoppier then the aroma suggests, in a pleasantly good way, with a nice spicy bitter finish. Almost a Wheaty quality to it, bordering on a hoppy hefe. Average to medium bodied. Really good and a joy to drink.
