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.
