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.

3.49/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: straw yellow color. Completely opaque. Two fingers of an off white head that lingers

Smell: grassy and pilsnery malts. Citrus and big Belgian yeast

Taste: opens up with Pilsner malts, grassy and citrusy hops. The hops are almost immediately drowned by an intense Belgian yeast that is spicy and dry

Mouthfeel: extreme dry and bitterness that lingers

Overall: an intense beer that the flavors are a bit too intense for me. The dryness eats right up the rest of the flavor

Serving type: on-tap

Allagash has yet another great beer with the Hugh Malone. Appearance resembles the Allagash style with moderately cloudy, but very nice color (Deep Orange) The smell was very good, but not outstanding. Taste was the best part of this beer. I was very surprised with the citrus mixed with a little bit of pine taste. The Belgian yeasts adds that nice Belgian flavor and keeps you coming back. Not a session beer but a very enjoyable beer. I highly recommend.
