3.03/5 rDev -17.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 1
Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a cloudy copper color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of hops, some citrus and spice. Taste is hoppy, some citrus and ginger are present, bitter at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth. Overall is where I will rate to style, while I enjoyed this beer, this is the first Pumpkin ale I have had with no pumpkin smell or taste. In my opinion this is no more of a pumpkin ale than Miller High Life. Good beer, yes, pumpkin ale, no.

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.
