hangunder (223) - Ontario, - MAY 21, 2013
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.

DuffMan (6644) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013. Hazy yellow with a creamy white head. Fresh guava hop character married to crackery malts. Clean and fruity, long bitter finish. Very good.

Ontbeertaster (2323) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Tap, pours golden, aroma was a nice piney and so was taste, it was a bit faint of hopps for me, would have liked it to be a bit hoppy, had almost a creamy finish.

jercraigs (7744) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
2013-06-23. Lightly hazy bright orange body with a large frothy white head. 3++ Light citrus character and moderate bitterness throughout. Notes of lemon peels. Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Pleasant aroma, lightly grassy, mild citrus notes. Pretty nice. Bottle from the brewery

mcberko (6270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy, opaque pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings tons of soft pine and floral notes, like a fresh meadow, with some crackery malt in the back. Flavour brings out loads of floral notes, again like a fresh meadow, some mild citrus, and biscuity malt. Very fresh, floral and dry on the palate. Highly drinkable pale. Great stuff.

pushkinwow (1996) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle from jercraigs. Opaque pale yellow with a white head. Faint floral hops, bit of grass, banana, and a touch of resin on the finish. Moderate carbonation and body, refreshing, flavourful and cleansing on the palate, initially a bit sweet but becomes more bitter, quite well balanced. At first thought this was a little thin but as it warmed up it become quite tasty and very straightforward.

cfrancis (2312) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
Thanks to jercraigs for this. Pours cloudy straw yellow with a moderate white top. Aroma is grass and pine hop flavouring. Great nose. Taste is a great balance of pine hops and sweetness and grass from the malt.

Spab (2341) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
650 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a cloudy golden orange with decent-sized, lasting white head that leaves nice lace. Aroma is nice assertive piney and citrusy hops with some underlying sweet malt. Flavour is piney, grapefruity hops with underlying caramelly grainy malt. Average-lively, but fine carbonation. Another winner from this Monogamy series.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Pours a clear golden with white head and . Aroma is piney, citrusy, little tropical fruits. Taste is piney, grapefruits, pineapple, grainy malts, fairly dry, medium bitterness. Low body and good carbonation. Good and refreshing.

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.
