look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Hazy blonde, one finger of white head, touches of lace as well. Smell is citrusy, lots of lemon, some earthy aspects as well as a bready malt undertone that is in line with the rest of this series, dry hops are at the forefront though. Taste starts out dry and earthy, hoppy with lemony citrus and some fresh cut grass, this also has a big dill pickle like taste that is overpowering and off putting, crisp malt. Lightly carbonated, medium body, decent feel. I did not love this, but its not a drainpour or anything, just not something I would probably come back to.

On-tap at the brewery.

The beer has an odd appearance - very different from the rest of the series. Totally opaque - a murky yellow/orange colour. It looks almost solid. Moderately sized white head, good lacing.

Nose contains light fruits and herbal aromas.

Taste has a strong lemon flavour, as well as dank herbal flavours. Moderately bitter. There is an odd flavour that I cannot quite place but that is not particularly pleasant.

Medium bodied, strongly carbonated. A bit oily.

Overall, this is the weakest of the Monogamy series so far. I am actually not sure whether it is the hop, the brewing, or both. But this one does not work for me. There is something strange about it that just doesn't sit well with me.
