Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ppoitras on 04-27-2007

Hugh Malone begins with a grain bill featuring a blend of Maine grown barley, imported Pilsner, and raw wheat malt. At the beginning of run off, we add a portion of hops to the sweet wort in the kettle; a technique known as "first wort hopping". As the boil begins, a generous amount of Chinook hops are added for bittering. Later, in the whirlpool, the beer is hopped with a blend of Centennial and Amarillo, for aroma. This same blend is used, post fermentation, to lend additional hop character to the finished beer. The result is a complex brew with a malty palate, intense hop aromas, pronounced bitterness and a pleasantly dry finish.

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Golden with a long lasting white head.

Smell: Super hoppy, floral and piney.

Taste: Moderate to strong hops up front, which blends into mild Belgian style yeast, into a bready malt backbone. Aftertaste is a nice mix of Beglain yeast and more West-coast style hops.

Mouthfeel: Thick and moderately carbonated.

Overall: Delicious! Feels substantial in every way. Hop profile is like an American Pale Ale, and it goes well with the Belgian style yeasts. Gives it more depth.

Great beer, great aroma and flavor, but probably not worth the cost as a "regular" stock beer
Very well balanced with a great level of complexity

Nice ruby/orange hazy coloring with a huge head of tight aromatic bubbles. Fair amount of citrus and melon in the aroma. More citrus, a touch of pine, marshmallow, and pith in the taste. Moderate carbonation yet slightly creamy mouthfeel. Some yeasty funkiness in this but not as much as I expected, well done overall beer.
