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 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into an Allagash pint glass. Had at New World Tavern--Plymouth

Appearance: 3/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, gold in color, cloudy

Smell: toasted malt, floral and pine hops, Belgian spice

Taste: sweet grass and honey in the start followed by citrus hops in the middle and end..Light Belgian spice throughout.

Mouthfeel: sweetish start with a bitter middle and end, dry aftertaste, moderate carbonation, medium-light bodied

Overall: One of the better Belgian IPAs I have had. The alcohol is really well hidden and the hops are not as biting as some Belgian IPAs. This one is really smooth and super easy to drink. I could definitely have a couple of these in a night.
