jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
2014-09-03. Hazy orange body, modest white head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, nice orange and lemon citrus melange from the hops. 7+ Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, similar citrusy hop melange throughout. Light resin and citrus seeds in the finish. Exceptionally drinkable the hops could be just a touch punchier but this also sat in my fridge longer than I meant it to so I don’t know if that is the beer, or if the hops have faded a touch. Tasty! Smooth average plus bodied palate with soft carbonation. Bottle from Bellwoods, Toronto

Thanks for sharing Sammy- Jucy notes of tropical fruit greet the nose. A faintly hazy light-yellow hue with a thin white ring and no lacing. The commercial description nails it! The flavor is decidedly pungent coupled with florals and tropical fruit notes. A bitter finish and aftertaste are also present. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, meh… While drinkable it is fairly one demintional. Perhaps I should have anticipated that given its name.

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Cloudy golden-orange in colour with a lingering white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of light tropical fruits, some citrus, some biscuts. The flavour has some pineapple, oranges and some sugar sweetness. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, bitter and peppery.Its good but lacking the big citra hop punch.

500ml bottle from the brewery in Toronto, Ontario.

sudomorph (609) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a bright, clear, golden with a one finger, white head and slight sediment throughout. Mild lacing. Aroma has big juicy citrus notes with pine, and resin. Taste is balanced. Toasted bread with orange citrus, pine, and resin. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a nice carbonation. Overall a tasty brew. My favorite monogamy so far. Pine, citrus, resin with a bready backbone.

Bottle from Jane bond. Hazy gold. Gummie candy aroma; awesome. Delicate malty sweetness, light citrus and tropical fruits, floral notes, and a fairly bitter finish. Smooth body with nice carbonation. Another great monogamy.

Spab (2401) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
500 ml bottle at beer bistro. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with lasting white head. Aroma is bursting with tropical fruit - lychee, grapefuit and mango. Flavour is also huge tropical fruit with similar notes. Modest bitterness in finish. Nice.

Alpha10 (335) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
2014/05/21 - Pours a hazy orange/honey colour with a large, foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is biscuit, mild pine, catty floral hops, citrus fruits (mainly orange) and tropical fruits (mango and pineapple). Taste is mango, oranges, grain, mild pine and mildly catty and floral hops. Begins with medium sweetness and ends mildly bitter. Body is medium with average carbonation and a refreshing and drying finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a foamy white head. Citrusy, fruity aroma with some floral and catty notes. Flavour of tropical fruit, citrus fruit and catty hops along with an average to long bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Another solid Monogamy, well done.

mds (2209) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle from the brewery.
Pours a cloudy golden with a creamy white head. Sweet biscuit and pineapple tropical fruitiness aroma. Far less hop character than Karma Citra but it makes it more drinkable in massive quantities. Enjoyable.
