sudomorph (643) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
On tap at Bellwoods. Pours a hazy, light yellow with a half finger, white head that paces well. Aroma is interesting. Notes of bread, herbal grass, and almost an onion. Taste is balanced but a touch bitter. Pungent earthy/herbal mixed with toasted bread, and almost a savory ending. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Pretty clean mouth feel with a soft carbonation and semi-dry finish. Overall a nice addition to the monogamy line up. Flavours of bread and herbal/earth. Almost savory.

Aroma great front hop character. Clean crisp feel , excellent show of single hop.8-
Appearance fine haze on golden base. Medium off white to p with rings on glass.3+
Flavor and Palate : front accented my musky, zesty soapy notes. Strong single hop profile with bit too little malt support. Dry finish.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
500 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy straw-golden with a moderate white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of grapefruit peel and spice, along with pale malts and a subtle herbal quality. The flavour is quite dry throughout with a moderate hoppy bitterness up front with grapefruit peel and lemon. A peppery spiciness picks up through the middle along with the bitterness. It closes out with a long, dry and bitter finish with pepper notes. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a dry, slightly astringent texture and average carbonation. Overall, a nice pale ale with an interesting bitter quality, but it seems too simple to stand along as the sole hop. 2014-07-30

Love the idea behind the Monogamy beers. Bellwoods is giving us a clear shot at what we’re tasting I like that. I also learned that I don’t like Summit Hops. Wondered what that weird, what I called, off flavour, was in this or that beer. Apparently it’s was Summit. Good to know. So it poured golden and clear with some white head which reduces to nothing. The nose is lots of resin and a touch of pine. Similar notes on the taste, the resin hops is a little like a overly warm-brewed off flavours. I didn’t love this beer. But that’s okay I’ve learned something too. I’ll look forward to the next Monogamy and the new Bellwoods location, congrats! Thanks!

Marketing itself as pungent is correct. Citra smell (cat p) and taste. Drinkable on a long summer day, citrusy, Worth a try but ony average for the style. Dark yellow body with some retained head. Medium mouthfeel, slightly undercarbonated.Thanks for getting a bottle, Doug.
