Iam not sure if I got a bad bottle but Iam gonna review it now and get another in the future,this was not very good at all.Poured a dull burnt orange with no head to speak of at all,just looked flat.Heavy spice in the nose with cinnamon,and clove being most prominant over mace and cardamom.Overly spiced flavors with cinnamon and cardamom being way overdone.I had high expectations for this beer,Iam not sure if its off, or really this bad.Just sweet boozy and overspiced.

Pours into my glass an autumnal copper orange. Not much head to speak of, just a little ring around the top of the glass. Aromas start out with sweet malts intertwining with lots of spice flavors. Ginger, cinnamon and clove are the most prevalent. Vegetal underneath with a touch of caramel.

First sip brings sweet caramelized malts upfront with a bevy of spices rushing across the palate. Bold ginger meets clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. Somewhat vegetal midway through that's reminiscent of pumpkin meat. Flows down with a big lingering spicy kick and a touch of crisp sweetness with ginger in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy with good carbonation. Goes down smooth and the alcohol is well hidden throughout. Overall, I found this to be a spice forward pumpkin ale that didn't come together as nicely as some others I've had. Lots of ginger lingers on with each sip. Worth a shot, but I wish the spices were toned down a bit.

22oz bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a small white head that quickly goes t a thin collar.

The aroma is sweet pumpkins, floral perfume, and some spices (ginger, nutmeg?).

The flavor is sweet pumpkin pie with a good amount of spices (nutmeg) and a little weird plastic/metallic bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, a decent pumpkin beer. I remember liking this a lot more on tap at GABF - at that point it was one of my favorite pumpkin beers. Not sure if I got a bad bottle, or if it's just better on tap, or if I had a few too many at GABF by that point, but this is just OK. It's a bit flat and overly sweet with some off notes.

22 oz. bottle poured into a NB snifter.

A - Pours a wheat/honey gold. An almost-nonexistent head of light khaki foam disappears almost immediately, leaving a thin ring of bubbles around the edge and swirl of fine lace on the surface. Held to a full-spectrum light, the beer is an apricot orange and a touch cloudy, with several trails of bubbles rising from the center bottom.

S - A quick punch tweaks the nose with spices: cinnamon predominates, followed by ginger, nutmeg, and clove. Freshly baked pumpkin pie across the background. Hints of caramels. As it warms in the glass, the spices meld together and soften while the toasted malts appear as moist, grainy bread dough. Pleasant and inviting, easy to savor.

T - Pumpkin, front and center, followed by a nicely spiced pie filling, and chased with a caramel topping. Rich and flavorful. While pumpkin is what's featured, there's still plenty of the supporting spices, and are well-balanced. The big ABV is well-hidden, except for the warm spot in the tummy that develops. The finish features echos of brown sugar and cinnamon toast with pumpkin pie, followed by late notes that remind me of a spicy ginger-ale.

M - Smooth with a touch of fizz. Moderate body that leans a bit light. Nicely integrated components are almost silky across the tongue. Finish is well-balanced and lingering.

O - A sophisticated, richer take on the pumpkins that's quite tasty. While it features the pumpkin in the taste, there's still plenty of spices to be found bouncing around in the mouth after the finish. This would be a great alternative at the Thanksgiving table to compliment turkey and stuffing, a meal that's always been challenging to pair wine to.

22oz bomber.

Two fingers of froth, stickage on the glass. Bright brassy amber clarity. Spiced nose, ginger and cinnamon come forward the most and tangle with the malt, pumpkin and alcohol. Smooth and slick full body. The beer shows its strength right away with a quick to warmth feel on the palate and lingering fruitiness from the yeast. Maltiness drops more breadiness than caramel. Ginger and cinnamon mirror the nose with remain dominant. Finishes semi-dry with spice and alcohol.

This beer flexes hard, yeah it has its pumpkin spiced side but the imperial side shows off a bit. I dig this beer a lot.

Bomber bottle, w/o freshness info.

The pour is lighter orangy amber, near clear, minor head and equally lame lacing (next to none)

Nose of pumpkin pie spicing.

Quality pumpkin ale, typical spicing and all the expected flavor components...a bit of alcohol showing itself here and there...nice thanksgiving night night capper...

Had on tap @BBC Cedarville--served into a tulip

Appearance: minimal head, orange-brown in color, cloudy, moderate carbonation

Smell: cinnamon, clove, and alcohol

Taste: breadiness, clove, cinnamon, alcohol, and other pumpkin spice

Mouthfeel: sweet with an alcohol burn, moderate carbonation, light bodied

Overall: A flavorful pumpkin treat. I love the depth and richness of this one. This one jumps out as one of the more complex pumpkin brews along the lines of Southern Tier's Pumpking..although I think I prefer ST. I would get this again if I wanted a nice pumpkin sipper.

Orangey honey colored with nearly no head despite a vigorous pour.

Strong vegetal aroma with big notes of vanilla and nutmeg, some subtle cinnamon.

Rich flavor of vanilla and nutmeg, cinnamon with a slight peppery bite, notes of pumpkin and squash, not picking up any ginger. High sweetness, not adequately balanced by the bitterness.

Slick mouthfeel, nearly syrupy, low carbonation, could use some body. Warmth and tingles on the tongue in the finish.

Tasty beer, but needs some body and balance.

22 ounce serving with a big deep orange copper body representing the Hoppin' Frog out of Akron, Ohio. Aroma hits you in the face with clove, and other aromatics in the way of ginger cinnamon and nutmeg. Classic pumpkin pie spices with some meaty juicy pumpkin gourds going on as well. Really well balanced between loads of pumpkin pie spice and sweet caramel candy pumpkin fruit sugars, pretty amazing feet to spice it so heavily with a beer with this much spice character to not come off cloying. Almost a toasted marshmallow like experience full of roasted caramel, this beer is pretty awesome even if you don't like pumpkin pie. It's actually easier to drink than alot of other imperial pumpkin ales out there but just super spicy, I'm givnig my second half to my wife and I will cleanse the palate and start in on a fresh six of Green Flash WCIPA. Overall a decent pumpkin ale that should probably be served in 12 ounce portions, but it's still a good version of a widely abused style.

(Served in a teku)

A- This beer pours a dark orange body with a strong carbonation of big bubbles that boil up to form a head which equals a collection of large white bubbles.

S- The soft dark caramel aroma is supported by a stale spice note. Even with lots of sniffing I couldn't get much more out of this beer.

T- The beer has a vegital flavor with some cooked pumpkin qualities but other cooked vegetable flavors are stronger. There is a slight sweetness which blend into a dull mellow spice character. The finish is a bit of alcohol heat and more dull spices that are non-descriptive.

M- The light mouthfeel has a tight fizz and a warming alcohol heat in the finish.

O- The spices are a bit stale and bland or really overcooked with an odd vegital flavor for support. I didn't get any malt character out of this. I was pretty let down and I enjoy pumpkin beers this time of year.

These notes are from a pumpkin tasting that took place a while back, but they're good.

This beer is a sort of amber-orange with a light haze to it. Activity is consistent and aids in the formation of a solid light orange head just over a finger tall that leaves lightly patchy but continuous lacing almost all the way down the glass.
The aroma isn't shy. Like Frosted Frog, Hoppin' Frog's Winter seasonal offering, this one shows a propensity toward being overspiced. Unlike that beer, however, this one thankfully stops short, allowing the beer itself to show itself with the spices as a nice addition. A nice malty base offers some caramel notes but a bit more breads with a bit of sweetness while a varietal spiciness (cinnamon and nutmeg notes prevalently) round it out, and some pumpkin flesh shows up, which is always important for a pumpkin beer.
The taste, fortunately, follows suit: a strong malt backbone, pumpkin flesh, a variety of pie spices threatening but stopping short of overkill, caramel and breads leaning toward toasty, and a bit of sweetness. This is a pretty well-rounded beer.
The mouthfeel is medium but falls a little short, going a touch thin. That said, it does have a bit of body to it and is actively carbonated for a good smoothness, but it could be bigger. I tend to think the higher alcohol thins it out a bit, and something needs to be amped to make up for that. Otherwise, it's really not bad at all.
This is another pumpkin beer lovers of the style could make a regular.

2012 release.

Poured from a chilled bomber allowed to warm into a tulip glass.

A: Bright coppery gold with a scuddy ring of eggshell foam. Would be filtered clear but for a high content of floaties. In fairness, this bottle was on its side in the fridge.

S: Fairly spice-forward and I am picking up some clove and ginger and cinammon. Possibly others. It isn't a terribly complicated nose and it lacks a bit in the heady malt richness that I would have expected from this ABV level. Not bad at all mind you....but it didn't overwhelm.

T: The first impression that I have of this is "thin". The spicing is not as forward in the taste as it is in the nose. Pumpkin and some bready malts hit the palate and it finishes with a slight sweetness and a tiny bit of hop and alcohol burn on the tongue. I like the sweetness balance of this brew...it is not overly sweet, nor is it dry or flat. What it is not, is robust and rich, which is a real shame. Maybe more malts are needed here. Something is. Again, no bad, just a bit pedestrian for an Imperial.

M: This is where I slam this brew. I want creamy and robust, not marginal. Imperial should be more than just abv. This does not drink like a double.

O: With more great pumpkins (no pun) being brewed every year, there really is no reason to try this one again. It is OK. If I had it in a bar I would probably feel that it is a decent effort, but when you put this next to a Smashed Pumpkin, or the superb Unita Oak Jacked, this falls way flat.

Bomber served cold into an Ohio State pint glass. Ohio beer in honor of the election and hoping it goes in the Democrats' favor.

Frog's Hollow is a deep amber color with a slight haze. The head is thin and settles fast.

Aroma is very pleasant if you enjoy pumpkin pie spices. Mildly sweet and nicely spiced.

Flavor is much the same with a sweet caramel and pumpkin malty base. Lightly hopped for bitterness and very well-judged on the level of spice.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and low in carbonation which fits the style.

Overall a very good pumpkin beer. One worth seeking out if you enjoy the style.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Peach colored to hazy yellow to lighter brown, depending on the light. The color's nice, but man, the head goes down to nothing quick, and there's little carbonation. Hope this isn't a bad bottle.

Smell: Driver, you're entering Spice City. This is what you'd expect, ideally, maybe, from a brew that has so many spices involved in the mix. I wonder if it's a little too much, since, as it warms, it begins to smell like one of those pervasive holiday candles that you smell at a place like Yankee Candle. But also, I like it, since it doesn't claim to only use a few. For some, it'll turn them off, but in the background you still get a good sense of maltiness going on, along with some darker cinnamon aromas that I like.

Taste: One thing I keep thinking: if they put this in six-packs, the ladies would love it. I say that, mostly, because the spices and malt element seem to be maybe a little too prevalent -- there's a flutter of some hops in the background, but this is a pretty malty brew, and I think an intriguing hop element could do a lot not only for the aroma, but also for the finish, which is pretty heavily spiced, and even though you may wait for some balancing citrus or acridity from hops, it's really not there.

Mouthfeel: It's not the the point where this is a bad bottle, I don't think, but it just seems undercarbonated to me, unfortunately, and that really lets the malt and spice stick to your ribs, so to speak, or really, your palate. Not as funny as I think I am: I know. But again, it gets a little syrupy, a little watery, and it's odd to me that such a sweet beer wouldn't have more carbonation so it wouldn't become what it ultimately does with so little carbonation.

Overall: I'm not sure my low score here is as characteristic as I want it to be for what I think about this brew, but as I've stated before, the missing carbonation and hop element could, possibly, end up doing a lot for this. Nothing will help the huge melange of spices, so if you're not into that or are afraid, stay away. But again, I feel like, whether they intended it or not, the girls who like the spicy pumpkin or holiday ales would really like this. Otherwise, and though I did enjoy this, I would maybe look elsewhere. Also, for near $10 a bomber, that price point doesn't work for me for what the beer ends up being in the end. All of this said: I'll still continue to check out more beers from HF, since I really like what they're doing... from the ones I've tried thus far, that is.

First, the notes on the label regarding this beer are clearly nabbed from the verse lyrics of Black Sabbath's "Lady Evil" (1980, 'Heaven and Hell'). If you know the song, check it out and tell me it's not true. Great move!

If a pour can indicate mouthfeel, I'm just going to predict this is thin and maybe even watery. We'll see, but it poured out kind of limp and stringy like...and the thin head flattens to absolutely nothing quickly (no skim, no crown). At 8.4%, I can't imagine this is dead or old, but it looks that way. Color is nice though, a burnt autumn-leaf orange-rust, not unlike the guts of the pumpkin itself.

The nose is more like it, balanced between the spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, clover) and the flesh of the almighty Hallowe'en squash. Pretty straightforward pumpkin ale aroma, reminiscent of Cottonwood's version; solid if unspectacular.

Flavor lays out the spices and squash in equal measure, as in the nose. Ginger spikes out a little from the rest, and there's a buttery element too. A lemon-lime bite, not unlike Sprite soda or something similar, is also here, and the soda comparison is full-on in the sweetness of this beer, as well as the mouthfeel. Texturally its not as thin as I predicted, but is actually totally over-carbonated, over-tingly and pretty much intrusive to the flavor. Big pumpkin ales (over, say, 6.5% or something) should be creamy as all get-out. At least, the best ones are and have proven creaminess a great asset to a killer pumpkin ale flavor. Here there's pretty good flavor made nearly enjoyable by the coarse and aggressive texture.

Could've been better. Considering how much I like Hoppin' Frog's Russian imperial stout and double IPA, I figured this could threaten the throne of the great Pumking. But no, it doesn't.

We blind tasted this beer in the Mug ( a pub in Middelburg, The Netherlands). During our tasting session in a particular style we taste 6 beers, one beer is always an exemption on the style. This was the exemption.

A - A light brown (some would call it orange) hazy ale with a tiny off white foam ring.

S - A very spiced beer; cinnamon, honey, nutmeg. It smells like some kind of medicine.

T - A different kind of beer with cinnamon and a lot of other herbs.

M - A medium to high carbonation together with a light bitter finish.

O - There was no love for this one in the tasting group. I think it was because of the barrel aged stuff is totally different. I think it's fun however.

The look isn't happening. It's a clearish burnt orange. I got no head whatsoever, maybe a few bubbles.

The smell is what I'm looking for in a pumpkin beer. Not so much the pumpkin but the pumpkin spices. Cinnamon and cloves dominate the nose, but in a good way. There is a maltiness to it that brings balance.

Stellar taste. The spices hit the tongue hard but nothing is offensive. The maltiness shines here too, bringing the same balance to the drink. Kind of bready with some alcohol in the finish.

Not a lot of complexity. Very spice forward. A bit sticky early on but it eases in the swallow.

I could drink this every night and be happy about it. I've had a lot of fall seasonals and this is pretty much spot on for Halloween or Thanksgiving.

All the familiar spices are in the aroma. Perhaps cinnamon is the most aggressive. Light body, big taste of pumpkin first before the spices kick in. They're milder than expected, but it definitely works. Cinnamon and clove stand out the most. Bit of heat from the ginger.

No surprise, it's great. Definitely top tier of pumpkin beers!

Frog's Hollow pours a nice pumpkin stained gold color. It's very clear and backlighting gives it a very nice pumpkin color. I like it. What I don't like is the absence of a head. A rather forceful pour yielded a soft white surface covering that disappeared nearly before it appeared. The result is no head. I like the color, but man...no head? C'mon now.

The nose is good. It certainly has a strong pumpkin presence. I like the approach here. It's much more pumpkin pie like, rather than straight pumpkin. Plenty of spices are noted. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger are the highlights. It smells like it has a nice, sturdy malt presence. It balances out the spices nicely. Alcohol is surprisingly tame. I'm barely getting any at all.

The flavor is nearly a mirror image of the nose. It's predominantly full of pumpkin pie spice. There's no shortage of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. They work nicely with the pumpkin and produce a slightly sweet, delectable flavor. Again, the approach here is good. I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin beers that have no spices or overall sweetness. They're too bland. Hoppin' Frog got it right. The spices are balanced nicely by the malt presence. Alcohol is blended extremely well. I'd never guess this is nearly an 8.5% beer. It finishes sweet and a tad spicy.

Frog's Hollow has a nice, smooth medium body. Carbonation is relatively light and doesn't interfere. I'm a little surprised by that. Given the disappearing head, I expected active and buzzy bubbles. Not so. Drinkability is good. This is tasty stuff that goes down easy. I can't say I'm the biggest fan of Pumpkin Ales, but this is definitely a good one. The bomber will be no problem, but that's enough for me.

Hoppin' Frog brews some tasty beer. They've quickly become a gem here in Ohio. Frog's Hollow isn't their best beer, but it's definitely good enough to warrant an annual release. The only problem with it is the lack of head. In the grand scheme of things, that's not too big of a deal. It's probably a little better than the final score will reveal for that reason. But, it is what it is. Good stuff, guys.

Poured from a 22oz bottle to a Dogfish Head Snifter.

Color: Slight hazy orange with an off white head.

Smell: Cinnamon, banana, pumpkin and nutmeg.

Taste: Alcohol, pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice and a hint of banana.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, smooth, medium dryness on the palate.

Overall: The smell is GREAT! The banana was a huge surprise for me. The taste had too much alcohol presence. Seemed to overpower the other flavors. Cheers!

Appearance: Halloween in a bottle...orange with a decent head if poured correctly.

Aroma: More of the pumpkin pie aroma than actual pumpkin.

Taste: Pumpkin Pie spicing (allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, some vanilla) and finishes with a spicy shot of vanilla and warming alcohol.

Overall: I really, really like Pumpkin Ales, especially Imperial Pumpkins. I did like this one. It has the usual flavors I would expect from this type of beer, and it was fairly easy to drink at 8.4%. Definitely worth a try. That being said, if the chips are down, I would grab a Southern Tier Pumpking, Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale, or a Weyerbacher Pumpkin before I would grab one of these. Cheers!!

22 oz bomber poured into Hoppin' Frog pint glass.

Had this last year when it first came out and loved it, and was eager to try this year! The fact that this beer just won the GABF Gold Medal in the style is pretty impressive for my hometown HF boys....congrats "Frog's"! I am a big fan of Pumpkin beers in general and have tried like 30 of them...think there may be room at some point for a separate category for the newer, more potent Double or Imperial Pumpkins which have cropped up over the past few years...the differences between one like this and a "regular pumpkin" like Shipyard Pumpkin or Buffalo Bills, are quite prounced, and akin to the differences between a regular IPA and DIPA....anyway, I digress...

Beer poured nice copper / orange color, head pretty light and nice carbonation...smell is pretty yummy, lots of spices, esp. cinnamon and the ginger is in there pretty strong, I like it!

Taste is pretty delicious IMO, really a nicely balanced brew that pulls off the delicate malt / hop / spice mix in a nice way, really quite good.

Mouthfeel is also good, slight alcohol / ginger burn at the end, body is a little light, but that makes it drinkable to me, if too heavy / sweet like many other Imp Pumpkins out there (i.e. ST Pumking), then that makes it not as drinkable, I think they pulled off another winner with this one!

I put a few of these aside in my cellar last year, along with some other heavier pumpkins, so will be interesting to sip alongside the new release for 2010 to see how they stack....nice job once again, Hoppin' Frog!

From bottle into pint glass.

A: Orange ambery, honey colored. A bit translucent. No head or much lacing.

S: very cinnamon, nutmeg and just spicy. More sweet potato than pumpkin. Reminds me of walking Michael's.

T: Very spicy! Cinnamon is very strong. Pumpkin is kinda hangin around but not the most prominent. I like it.

MF: eh.

OA: I really liked this, want more! Haven't found a lot of pumkins I like this one was over the top Stallone style.
