78/726) Home: Hop Circle IPA by Phillips Brewing Company of British Columbia: **; 6.5%; earthy hop notes; there is a touch of sweetness to this one and a dry, bitter hop finish;
79/727) Home: Monogamy Summit by Bellwoods Brewery of Ontario: **; 6.4%; brewed with Summit hops; earthy, slightly gingery hop nose; a refreshing tasting ale with touch sweetness and hoppiness;
The idea behind Bellwoods' Monogamy series is to highlight what each variety of hops brings to the party by using only one particular type in each recipe. It is a fun idea and it is a fun way to learn about the different hops available.
