Appearance – This is dark brown with a white head that showed a little lacing.
Smell – The only spices in this pumpkin ale are hops. There’s a very sharp resiny aroma that’s almost rude with little malt to back it up.
Taste – This one falls apart at the taste. The lack of a malt structure turns this beer into hoppy water and again the lack of good spicing leaves me confused.
Mouthfeel – This is short of medium-bodied but does have some nice, crisp, carbonation.
Drinkability – This was a huge disappointment. I knew anything by Stone had to be hopped up so was curious how they would approach this style but it just fell flat with me. It was hoppy but not a good hop beer, lacked the malt base that I look for in the style, had no pumpkin flavor whatsoever, and failed to provide any holiday spicing.
