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.

From the 2012 batch, corked, caged 750 ml. bottle.

The pour is a hazy and heady straw yellow. The lively carbonation bubbles feed the plush, foamy head that lingers on and on.

The floral hops are noted on the nose right off but they are subdued as they play against the wheat and pilsener malts that step forward. There is the slightest citrus zing but it simply tickles rather than overpowers.

The body is light to medium and creamy.

The taste is beautifully balanced with an upfront subtle wheat experience and a moderately lingering hop finish. While nothing takes command the hoppy background reminds you that this is an IPA.

This is the way I like my IPA's. It is not too harsh but presents itself enough to satisfy. A fine tribute to an early pioneer of the Maine brewing industry.
