look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Best by March 14, 2012 poured into an Allagash glass.
A: Pours a marmalade amber, with some awesome golden hues. There is a strong one and a half finger off white head that leaves a bunch of sticky lacing.
S: I am greeted by a bunch of Citra hops boasting some funky tropical fruit aromas. There is a hint of the spices lingering in the background, but this is a pretty hop forward beer.
T: Hops galore, fresh and delicious. Mid-palate the ginger surfaces with a pleasant spicy punch. It finishes dry with the bittering hops coming back around and some toasted grain.
M: Medium bodied with some lush carbonation. Feels real nice.
O: For me this completely works, however I would categorize this as an IPA with pumpkin and spices. It is not incredibly complex, just a nice break from the overly done pumpkin pie stuff.

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.
