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.

I'm not all that impressed with this. It's not bad, but poured at a good temperature with some foam at first and then it vanished, with no lace either. Color is a nice clear medium amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is the best part with a nice blend of spice, pumpkin, and caramel. Flavor's a lot like nose, a little tang come thru, tho not much. There is enough bitter to balance. Body is good, carbonation a touch soft. Finish is like flavor, tapers nicely, and has a little alcohol warmth. A bit of a meh beer.
