Aroma was of pumpkin pie spices. Cinn, nutmeg, etc.
Looked sort of orange. Poor head retention, but left some lace.
Taste was pumpkin pie spices with a lot of hoppy bitterness. I have never had a pumpkin ale with so much hop bitterness before. It was an interesting interpretation of a pumpkin ale.
Medium bodied, avg carbonation.
Overall, I think it was OK. I would have preferred less hop influence in this type of beer, I guess I just didn't get what they were going for... or why they were going for it. I really like the other beers that they do though.
Serving type: bottle
