16oz Tall Boy with a Best Before date on the bottom of the can of 30DEC2012. Pours a semi translucent vibrant orange with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. Aromas of citrus and floral hops, spices, earth, and a hint of pumpkin. The taste is a nice mix of floral hops with a hint of sweet orange. Earthiness and spices are the most prevalent flavors along with a good amount of malts. Bitter floral hop finish. Not really picking up on much, if any pumpkin. Silky mouthfeel. I bought this one on accident not knowing it was a Pumpkin beer, which I hate, but when i was told there was very little pumpkin flavor I decided to give it a try. Im glad I did. This tastes more like a Spiced Beer or maybe even an Oktoberfest than a Pumpkin Beer. Overall, decent beer I'd grab again.

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.
