Pros:

Alcohol content.

Among better pumpkin ales.

Well balanced spices.

Heavy bodies beer.

Cons:

It is a pumpkin ale, which i usually do not like. Mostly because i do not have any preference for pumpkins and then they do not offer much. Just a different style of beer.

Nothing very striking about it.

Other usual stuff.

Color : Copper- Orangish
Smell : A bit of cinnamon, pumpkin hint with some malt.
Not bitter for its alcohol content.

I saw this was on sale at Total Wine for $2.99 per 22oz bottle so I bought four of them. This is my fourth one and I have enjoyed them all.

The beer pours a ruddy, blood brown sort of color with not a trace of lace or head. The lack of head is the only thing about this beer that really needs improvement. The head leaves quickly and doesn't even form a ring on top or the slightest bit of foam. This was the case with all four bottles.

Aroma is very seasonal. Perhaps a bit heavy on the ginger and allspice, but general pumpkin aromas like cinnamon and nutmeg lend a hand. The underlying beer smells and tastes like a brown ale of sort. Aromas of bread and crackers.

Flavor is heavy on the ginger, but I don't mind. Ginger is great for digestion and other stomach ailments. Bready and slightly sweet but with a little bitter kick in the finish.

On the sweeter side, slightly cloying, but a very good beer. I can see people really not liking this because of the heavy ginger, but I like it. Less sweetness would be great.

As a Hoppin' Frog devotee and pumpkin ale skeptic, I approached this brew cautiously optimistic. Or was I optimistically cautious? Whatever, it's a good beer. Hoppin' Frog Frog's Hollow pours a deeper shade of orange than other examples of the style I've recently had. Head vanishes almost instantly. Very sweet on the nose. This worries me. I like sweet beers but pumpkin ales overdo it sometimes. It smells vaguely pumpkin pie-ish, with plenty of sugar and spice and all that. It's sweet on the palate but not cloyingly so. Pumpkin's up front, followed by an array of spices and a sweet vanilla finish. You know something? I like it quite a bit.

22 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass

A - It is orange with amber highlights. It is topped with a half of an inch of beige head.

S - The aroma is loaded with pumpkin spices. I get some cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

T - The taste has all these spices, as well.

M - Moderate

O - I wasn't in the mood for a pumpkin ale, but I had to get rid of it. It turned into a delightful treat. I was surprised at how flavorful it was. Plus the mouthfeel was good. I hate pumpkin beers that are watery.
