Poured from the bottle into a sampler glass, one gets a get shot of cinnamon in the aroma.The appearnce was a golden color with an off white head. Without being overdramatic, this is the worst pumpkin ale I have ever had. At first, it reminded me of the little cinnamon hearts at grade school Valentine's Day parties. Then I further though those hot dose of Cinnamon reminded me of Hot Dam! Nobody drinks that stuff straight, and nobody should put it in my beer. When it came to the aftertaste, it got the burn of cinnamon mouthwash yielding to a more mediciney flavor. At least the beer was thin and the taste did not last long. Did I get the bottom of the barrel in my bottle? Pumpkin and clove and the other things people found were nonexistant as far as I'm concerned.

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.
