look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a hazy pale orange which is capped by a sticky off-white colored head about a finger thick to start.
Aroma has some citrusy hop character up front before the maltier side of things works its way on in. Good bit of spice picked up as well but not a whole lot that says pumpkin.
Taste is a bit hard to pin down on this one. Has a nice citrusy and floral hop character upfront but certainly the malt and pumpkin keeps this from reaching IPA proportions. Some spice character and a bit of ginger all complimented well by a flavor that I can only describe as gourdy... like eating a raw pumpkin. Certainly isn't an over spiced pumpkin pie beer like a lot of pumpkin beers tend to be.
Mouthfeel has a full bodied maltiness and a pleasantly smooth feel. Overall, I wasn't sure what to expect from this but I think I like it. A bit of a departure from the normal pumpkin beer but its growing on me.

Had this at a tasting which included 23 pumpkin beers.
This made it to the top 5 for me... #5 actually. ..
The guy at the beer store said its not what you expect (not in a bad way)..
Well out of 5 judges, three (including myself) are hop heads and surely enjoyed this. The other 2 hate hoppy beers and it was at the bottom for them.
Wet Hops/hopping is used and as soon as you crack the can a beautiful smell of fresh hops with the smell of fall spices so delicately blended in takes all your attention. Had one of the best heads to me but probably because of the ipa/ness of the brew. Taste was a smack in the face of fresh hops.. fresh as I felt I had actuall hop cones in my mouth.. more pumpkin, all spice, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice makes its way thru but it is more of a light flavored pumpkin ipa. Finishes super smooth with a nice bitter aftertaste...
Suprised I was... to me yea.. its #5... but because it is so far away from your typical pumpkin ale.. but deserving enough of its own standing... I would surely find it hard to pass this up...even against the other top pumpkin beers I tried.
