Hugh Malone

Belgian-Style IPA

An annual Allagash tradition, Hugh Malone Ale is a blend of both Belgian and U.S. brewing methods. This limited-release beer combines the intense aromas of American hop varieties with the delicate esters found in Belgian-style yeast. Hugh Malone is brewed with a blend of two-row malt, munich malt, oats, and raw wheat. Each year, multiple pilot batches are run to experiment with different hop combinations in search of the right balance of citrus, fruit, pine, and spice notes. While there is a commonality between the hops used in Hugh Malone each year, there’s always great variety. This year’s Hugh Malone uses Nugget as first wort hops, added before the boil even starts. Chinook are mixed in as the wort comes to a boil. Simcoe, Cascade, and Centennial are added in the whirlpool. Then additional Centennial, Simcoe, Denali, and Citra are used to dry hop the beer.
