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.

3.55/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

750ml bottle into wide mouthed (as recommended) valdieu goblet batch 3

appearance: hazy amber/orange with some red hues, very cloudy stuff, head doesnt really hold up to the wide mouth glass and dissipates quickly, besides that a very fine looking beer

smell: honey suckle sweetness as well as resiny hops, piney maybe a bit of rosewater type floral aspects. also some caramel/toffee undertones

Taste: alright im thinking this is aged... Malty almost like a barleywine, slighty toasty on the start with some caramel low-medium roast barley flavor, Still a nice hop punch with a carbonation that is actually surprisinly bubbly. Finish is all dry, astringent and bitter with more of an ipa finish that is not at all belgian to me

overall: really complex stab at this style im not really sure exactly where it fits style wise i guess belgian ipa works, sort of a style defying brew in my opinion worth the chance to try if your into beers that finish really dry and if you like allagash because they dont make many hoppy brews which this definitely is
