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

I don’t have a great sense of smell, but I could swear I noted apricot in this 2012 effort. Had a good hop aroma, but not too piney. It had some chardonnay characteristics, most notably its dryness on the tongue. Foamed up quickly when poured, but it didn’t last long. Overall I’d say I enjoyed it, just not at its price point. If you’re buyin’, I’m drinkin’.

Great smell on top. Hazy golden pour with good head and lacing. Great mix with floral perfume and bitter finish evened out by Belgian yeast. Light sweet finish. Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont.

Nice head that stays. Pale, golden color and slight hoppy aroma. Easy to drink, this has an almost sweet but hoppy flavor. Bitter finish but can taste fruity yeast. Nice play, Belgian IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Greens Discount / Columbia SC --- Cloudy medium amber with a thick puffy 1" head, sheet of lace that drops back into the drink. Taste is caramel malt that is quickly eclipsed by medium citrus hops. Glimmers of malt continue to show, but hops push right through the finish. Interesting brew, not exactly a Belgian Ale, but quite drinkable. This bottle says 7.3% abv.

Draft sample from Crossroads Spirits. Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, light spices, and lots of sweet fruitiness. Taste also has that Belgian yeast and spice characteristic, but not overpowering, with notes of old citrus fruit and pine as well.

Draft @ Lucky Dog w Erica. Tulip. 1.5-finger white head. Aroma of fresh hops and yeast, not too "Belgian" ... Tastes the same, fresh hop and herbal notes that blend really well. 8.5% booze hidden extraordinarily well. Easy-drinking Belgian.

Bottle from Hop City, Atlanta. Pours a slightly cloudy orange, lots of white head. Aroma deep, grassy, immense, like standing at the edge of a cliff with the wine rushing by. Some funk. Body very lively, pillowy, finish very subtle and complex. Fucking stellar.

I thought this was a nice BSA that had a good hop profile from nose tho finish and the flavors moved around enough to keep each sip something different.

Draught @ GLB Portland ME. This is a great BSA with some nice hopping and malt backbone.

FROM NOTES: October 21, ’13. On draft at the Iron Monkey. A: Belgian yeast/spice, fresh pine hops, grassy, and some citrus. A: Pours a hazy straw gold with two fingers of sticky white head that leaves good lacing and retains well. T: Lots of grassy and lemony hop flavors up front with a light bitterness. There are some lightly sweet Belgian yeast flavors on the finish. P: Sweet, almost tangy. Medium carbonation, medium body. A very well-balanced Belgian. O: A solid example of the Belgian IPA style.

On tap at the wonderful Brickstore Pub in Decatur,Ga. Delicate and sweet malts accompanying notes of light fruit are joined by an explosion of pungeant hops. Really solid offering. I gotta say from my experience all beer tastes a little better here.
