Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Not a review, but wanted to clarify the chemical structure on the bottle. Believe that it is Humulone. More information is found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humulone. Cortisol also has C21H30O5, but the structure does not match what is printed on the bottle. Nice play on "Hugh Malone Ale" (http://hughmalone.com/).
