kevinsenn (2021) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle from brewery. Dear, peach, and strawberry in the aroma. Taste is more earthy and spicy, but fruity too. Good for Chinook, but a better beer with other varieties.

Smells like pine and ripe grapefruit with a touch of spice. More of the same on the tongue, along with tropical fruit. Smooth and really drinkable.

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, thatís a Chinook IPA alright. Mouthfeel is a bit lackluster but still acceptable, somehow a bit thinner than other Bellwoods Monogamy ales Iíve 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. Iíve 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.

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
