The base of the beer includes English two-row malt and pale crystal malts, establishing an understated sweetness. To give Hugh Malone its hop character we use generous portions of Simcoe hops at three points in the brewing process. To begin with, we use a technique referred to as first wort hopping, in which Simcoe is added to the sweet wort as it enters the kettle. When the wort comes to a boil in the kettle we add Warrior hops, adding another layer to the bitterness of the beer. Later in the brewing process we steep a large amount of Simcoe in the whirlpool to impart a distinct hop aroma. Finally, during secondary fermentation in our conditioning tanks, we dry hop the beer, which instills a hoppy aroma with notes of pine and grapefruit. This 8.5 % ABV ale has a malty palate and a pronounced bitterness. It has a pleasant dry, hoppy finish. Original Gravity: 1080 by volume. Recommended Serving Temp: 45 degrees to 50 degrees F. Recommended Cellaring Temp: 55 degrees F

12 ounce bottle. Hazy pale gold color. Large creamy white head. Fresh yeasty nose with notes of lemon zest and citrus hops. First sip yields fruity, yeasty malt with notes of lemon, apricot and melon. The bready, yeasty notes are nicely balanced by the complex, spicy piney hops. At 7.7% ABV, the alcohol hides well. This is an amazing beer with complex flavors abounding. A must have.

Bottle. Thanks KL. Great aroma hopping, with substantial Belgian yeastiness. IPA-level hopping with candi sugar, ripe rude stone fruit, apricot, citrus, Consistent bittering right down the middle. Overripe fruit with a Belgian kick in the ass.

Shared by KyotoLefty. Hugh Malone from Allagash is a surprisingly clear pale gold with a big fluffy white head and a lovely fruity aroma. Soft round carbonation, grapes and citrus, spices plus a bit of hop vine character. A flavorful beer.

Bottle from a Lazy dog. Pours a hazy deep yellow color with a good sized frothy white head. Peppery earthy spice with lemony citrus on the nose and a hint of sweet bread underneath. Sweet bread and pine and citrus with a hint of earth and pepper in the flavor. Pretty tasty beer, I cant believe it took me so long to try this, and Im loving the 12oz bottles.

JStax (5214) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2016
12 ounce bottle poured into a Belgian tulip glass. The beer is a pale gold with a huge head of white foam. Very fluffy head. The aroma has musty and sweet grainy notes. Some mild banana notes. Some dried hay. Sweet and effervescent taste. Mild pine bitterness comes through. Lighter to medium body. Way more refreshing than I ever would have expected. Fairly dangerous, really. Medium carbonation.

One and only time having this was on 3.26.14. Bottled. I should start by saying, I love Simcoe so this will be a positive rate. The hops come through in the nose and in the taste. Not super juicy but I get some pine and a little bit of some oranges at the finish. Some yeastiness to the flavor.
