A wonderful work of brewing and a superior pale. Full bold fresh simcoe orange citrus taste and well malted. Small amount of head on golden. Exceptional drinkability.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bellwoods - very pale golden pour with a thick white head. There is a very bright juicy citrusy hoppy aroma. Softly sweet malt with a little bit of wheaty spiciness. Mango and pine along with a touch of white pepper. Lean but well balance. Lovely pale ale - quaffable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle. Pours a hazy beeswax tinged with brown and green, a soapy white head. Aromas of floral, herbal hop, fresh cut grass, grapefruit and tangelo. Clean with just a touch of honey sweetness, caramel malt backbone and a nice lingering hop finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation and smooth on the palate.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at bar Hop. Hazy light orange, decent off-white frothy head. Smells.... wow; catnip and pee. Beautiful. Taste follows, but way less pungent, can actually taste the light grain; not much alcohol. Light chewy mouthfeel, slightly astringent, modestly carbonated, surprisingly quick finish. Immensely sessionable and enjoyable and right in my wheelhouse.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Same great piney yeast taste as the other monogamies. The hops variety isn’t the most interesting, but makes for a good session ale. Pours cloudy blond with good lacing and head. Some citrus and pine. Carbonation is somewhere between soft and fizzy. Tap at Bar hop.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a cloudy dark yellow, quite bubbly, and with an average size long lasting frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing on the glass. Nice hoppy aroma, herbal, piney and fruity -- simple but very pleasant. Flavour follows the aroma and is just as good, nice and hoppy, along with citrus fruit, pale malt and an average dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very good, I really enjoyed it, I went through the bottle very quickly.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pine, hint of onion in the aroma. Very hazy yellow, with long lasting head. Taste is a bit surprising given the nose, the oniony flavors really come through here upfront, a bit of sweet malt and a bit of booze and a very dry finish with some mild hop bitterness. Not much in the way of tropical fruits here. A bit harsher and less refreshing than the other monogamys coming out of Bellwoods, but still quite interesting. Medium carbonation and light body.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Orange and lemon with a bit of resin. Pale yellow with a thin white head. Lemon and hay with a ton of bitterness and very dry. Not the nicest single hop.
