Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.80%

Availability: Rotating

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.

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.

The beer comes in a golden color with a white fluffy head.

The aroma has Belgian yeast, bready malt, some spice, and citrus.

The flavor follows with a longing spiciness that surrounds the palate. There's a bready malt character to keep the beer going throughout. Lots of pepper, some clove. Then it pushes on orange and grapefruit bitterness. It finishes quite dry along with the carbonation cleaning up the beer.

An extremely well constructed Belgian IPA.
