4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Probably the day-winner of five new tastings. Dry yet delicious juicy pine funk, weedy wild aromas and grass. Some mineral and a solidly dry but forgiving palate supported by just enough restrained pale malts. It’s all about the hop character here, and a masterwork of simplicity in this regard.

500mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a large white head. Aroma brings out loads of the tangy citrus hops and like grassy skunky notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with uber fresh tangy hops, light citrus, and light biscuity malt. Super fresh and well-balanced with a perfect bitterness. Excellent.

I recently had BW Double Nelson, their Double IPA using Nelson hops, so trying this extra interesting. Missing the orange-citrus that DN had, but the bitterness and onion is there. Softer cerial malts supporting. Not in love but not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells like grapefruit and pine with some resiny notes. Pours hazy golden, long lasting white head, the kind that gets all craggy. Medium bodied, very smooth and comfortable in the mouth, a lot of flavours coming out of one type of hop! Pine is big in the finish, start has a bit resiny flavour, citrus peel. Goes down too easily, very well done!

Bottle from a good trade, thanks Julien. Pours a cloudy straw yellow, decent finger or so of fluffy white head, clingy leggy lace sheets. Nose is caramel malts and hop resin, touch of grape. Tastes hoppy, a bit bitter, sweet malts, and some of that wine characteristic. One of the better Monogamy’s I’ve had.

[5063-20130117] Tap. Sweaty pine beds aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Super bitter pine needles and jalapeno peppery flavour has a long bitter aftertaste. Medium body is quite bitter. Interesting, lovely bitter. (8/3/8/4/15) 3.8

In short: A straightforward fruity blond IPA offering a appreciable freshness quality and very high drinkability. Excellent.
How: Bomber, consumed fresh one week after receiving it from blankboy, thanks a lot Paul.
The look: Medium-cloudy dark blond body topped by a medium white head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is grapefruity and tropica fruits with ruby red grapefruits coming out particularly strong. A pleasant freshness sensation to this fruity-hoppy aroma, not dried fruits or overripe fruits here. Taste is a bit discreet on the malt front, some bread and crackers wrapped in a fluffy yeast mixture. Hopping dominates without being aggressive. Pleasant mix of fruits including ruby red grapefruits, lime, mangos and more… Again, this freshness quality, like freshly squeezed fruits. A refreshing bitterness of medium intensity. Nothing resinous here, very clean finish. Very low sweetness sensation. A body that is a bit on the fluffy-yeasty side for the style, I prefer my IPAs a bit crisper but I’m nitpicking, this is a fine fine beer. I could drinking this every day. I wish I had more time to drink beer but I just don’t have much free time, I have a work PC, a home PC, a Laptop, a Notebook, a Tablet, a Smartphone, so now I spend 1/3rd of my life updating Adobe.
