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.

2014 vintage big bottle.

a hazy blonde body on this brew. head is bright white and HUGE. a lot of citrus in the aroma. really inviting. flavor starts with some earthy yeast bitter-bite. quickly moves to a refreshing citrus and pine hop flavor. getting some melon in there too. really tasty stuff.
