look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

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.

DISCALIMER: THIS BEER WAS OUT OF SEASON WHICH I DIDN"T REALIZE UNTIL AFTER I DRANK IT. PERHAPS A BATCH THAT ISN"T MONTHS PAST DATE WOULD BE BETTER>

As a pumpkin ale, this beer was a disappointment. As an overall beer it is decent.

Pours dark amber with a thick white head that leaves some lacing.

Smells hoppy with a hint of pumpkin, not pumpkin in a dessert sense though, more like pumpkin in a vegetable sense. Kind of squash-like.

Tastes more hoppy than anything., Pretty bitter, but there is a very slight hint of pumpkin and spices at the end.

Medium body with some nice carbonation.

Overall it was decent. It really didn't strike me as a pumpkin beer and in sixpoint's defense it isn't advertised as a pumpkin ale really. There is a pumpkin on the can but it doesn't say "pumpkin ale" anywhere.
