Has a cloudy, hazy pumpkin color with spicy clove smell with some definite vegetable smells, some nutmeg, some cinnamon and of course a pumpkin pie like smell in there as well. It has a strong perfume like smell to it pretty much.
Up front its smooth and malty with some caramel toffee malt notes mixing in with the sweet pumpkin taste which is subtle. On the back end of the taste its all about the spices and believe it or not hops. You think its going to be a sweet smooth beer and then it kicks in with the pumpkin, spice, clove, cinnamon, and vegetable flavors all mixing in with earthy bitter hops.
Its definitely the hoppiest pumpkin beer I've had which I love because I'm a huge fan of IPA's. So, obviously this one is now a definite favorite. Usually pumpkin beers are sweeter and this has a very earthy herbal taste mixing in with the strong spices you'd find in fall recipes or yeah pumpkin pie. Definitely recommended and is one of the best pumpkin beers you can get in my opinion.
