COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Marheb (2296) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
Des effluves de levure belge, des notes de mangue, de pin mais en très discrète expression. Je suis rarement excité par ce genre de mélange.

Draft at the growler NYC. Pours a orange hazy looking color with a head that fades buts remains on the sides. Pretty good whatever it is ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 17, 2013
On tap at 2SP. Pours a deep amber color with light red highlights, and a three finger whitish head with great retention. The nose is spicy, showcasing some coriander and candi sugar with an undercurrent of earthy bitter hops. Taste is lightly sweet fruitiness upfront, that’s met by a spiciness contributed by the carbonation. There’s a tart, cherry sourness that remains prominent. The finish is a mild, but persistent, aged, hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is high carbonation, medium-bodied, and smooth.

Pours a very cloudy and pale soft white with two fingers of dense and sticky white head. Nose is very peppery and spicy with a wonderful blend of peppery/spicy yeast esters and hop notes. Raw citrus flesh and peppery/green hops in the flavor. Dry and light medium body.

Pours a light yellow with an impossibly huge foamy head. What is it with so many belgian beers and their damn yeast creating so much head. Anyways, this is a nice drink with a lot of spice and a grassy herbal finish. Lemon citrus aroma and a candi sugar malt flavor. A nice version of a belgian IPA that is enjoyably drinkable without being overpowering and ridiculous.

Bottle. Not notably bad or good. With so many other Allagash offerings, this would not be my recommendation.

750 ml bottle, I believe I got it from michael-pollack. So I’ll say thanks again, Pollack! I entered it in my cellar database, looking at the style here and not seeing "Belgian IPA" on the label. 2011 vintage. Whoops. But hey, this was great. Poured a cloudy but bright gold with a finger of soft, frothy white head that stayed for a while. Aroma of bready malts, straw, funk, grass, and citrus. Flavor of bready and dry malts, grass, floral notes, oak chips, and light funk. Light-bodied, with a dry, spicy mouthfeel that has medium carbonation and finishes bitter. Great beer.
