Lubiere (12883) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, nice pungent catty hops, citrus, complex and enticing. In mouth, a nice smooth grassy malt with light catty hops, herbal and complex, well made.

Ferris (12747) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
Draft - Leafy hops and pine. Cloudy gold with a thin head. Tastes just like it smells. Very clean and a great showcase to the hop.

Bottle from the brewery, bottled this very month. A controlled subdued creamy orange citrus. Very drinkable and refreshing, but I would like more bold hop taste featuring everything the hop can give me. I guess that’s why they call it a pale.

2013-04-06. Bright orange body small white head. 3+ Wow! lovely citrus and tropical fruit hops in the aroma, very light greenery. Similar hop flavour, pleasant citrus and tropical fruit melange, hints at pineapple, moderate bitterness throughout. Quite different from other Galaxy based beers I have had if I recall correctly 8+ Average bodied palate is lighter than my usual preference but suits it and adds drinkability. Very nice. On tap at Bellwoods, Toronto

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pale straw-gold colour. A creamy white head. The aroma is great. Fresh and hoppy with a bright fruity/spicy aroma over a very lean pale malt base. Passionfruit and tangerine citrus. The beer is crisp and crackery with a little bit of zestiness as well. Peppery and spicy with a clean lingering bitterness. The balance is great with a refreshing dryness. The fruit and citrus notes that I read about this hop having are really highlighted here. Another damn fine beer in this series.

[5189-20130406] Tap. Light sweaty floral yeast and gym bag aroma. Slightly hazy, light brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. More sweaty yeast in the flavour. Bitter medium body. Good. (6/3/7+/4/14) 3.4

This one is excellent. Maybe my favorite from the series so far, even though I probably said that with the Nelson Sauvin. Pours cloudy golden orange. Aroma of tangerine, hay, bitter grass and mango. Finishes with medium bitterness. Medium consistency with versatile palate. Tap at brewpub.

Bottle [500ml]. Pours a cloudy, bubbly yellow-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Really nice hoppy aroma -- spicy, resiny, hempy and more -- along with citrus and tropical fruit. Flavour is just as good, also hoppy and fruity, with a nice bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. One of my favourite of the Monogamy series and just a joy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2013
In short: An aromatic fruity orange IPA bursting with freshness. Excellent.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed fresh soon after purchase, bottle forwarded to me by blankboy, thanks a lot Paul.
The look: Partly cloudy shinning orange body topped by a medium white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Highly aromatic nose loaded with all kinds of fruits (peaches, apricots, pineapples, passion fruits, more…) along with some perfumy floral/piney notes. Nice fragrance here. In mouth the beer feels doughy yet slender, pleasant bread dough flavor, low sweetness. Loads of fruity flavors that include but is not limited to the usually citrus fruits. These Galaxy hops express a nice exotic fruits character. One aspect I particularly like is the overall great freshness quality in its fruity flavors and bready cereals. Another winner for the Canadian Hill Farmstead. And I hate when someone is feeling sad and I recommend an excellent beer like this one and instead of thanking me this person says my framed Beerotherapist diploma is made-up bullshit.

Boutip (5910) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy bright golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of fruity and citrusy hops is quite nice with some floral undertones. Taste is also dominated by fruity hoppy notes with some citrus notes with light dry caramel malt backbone with not much residual sugar. Body is full with good carbonation. Love the freshness and the fruity notes of the Galaxy hops and the balanced level of bitterness.
