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

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Pours an amber gold, medium white head. Aroma and flavor are true to it’s brilliantly punny name (humulone, which is the molecule pictured on the label). This didn’t bring any comparisons to mind, except (vaguely) for Chouffe Houblon Triple. Odd combination of belgian esters and um, humulone (alpha acids). Not my favorite offering from Allagash, but it was good enough and offered something interesting. Probably not worth the $13 though.

ben4321 (4318) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Location Draft at Barcade JC, 2/7/15

Aroma: The nose of this one is lightly Belgian yeast, with some citrus hops/rind.
Appearance: It pours a clear gold, with a small white head, and drippy lace.
Flavor: The flavor is yeast, light spice, and bitter citrus rind flavors.
Palate: The body is medium, clean, soft carbonation, dry/spice finish.
Overall Impression: I thought that this was a pretty tasty one. I’m glad I tried it for sure. Finds a good place near Belgian IPA.

skmikeg (1075) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Pours golden yellow-orange with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, ripe fruits, belgian yeast, sourdough bread, pine, and some light dankness. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi bitter, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty interesting and tasty belgian IPA.

Emeister84 (1281) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Aromas of earthy, piney, floral hops, spicy phenols, and stonefruit-like esters. Somewhat hazy yellow-gold, lasting white head. Fruity, spicy, some sweetness, nice bitterness. Very soft and creamy, light-medium bodied.

Dogbrick (8881) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, yeast and spices. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, herbal yeast and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a grapefruit and hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

SG111 (299) - New York, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottled. Hazy golden hue with a huge Belgian head. Aroma is tons of citrus. Lots of lemon, orange, pineapple and a sweet maltiness. Little bit of honey in there too. Taste is candy sweetness up front with a nice dry hop finish. Lots of citrus hop flavors, orange, lemon, and maybe some pineapple. Definitely that traditional Allagash Belgian style yeast is noted. Nice mouthfeel. Super balanced IPA. Amazing.

annunz123 (899) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 9, 2014
More like a double IPA than a Belgian ale. Strong aroma with citrus, pine, and a little caramel. Very bitter fruity taste with a little underlying sweet malt. Bitter finish, a little on the thin side. Really, really good.

kaser (3403) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Orange clear with white sticky head. Strong hoppy and massive fruit flavor. Apricot and pineapple I think. A big beer wonderfully complex. Yum. Poured as part of a flight from draft at Haymarket Pub
