Thanks cosmicevan!

A - Pours a burnt orange/amber color with a small off-white froth. minimal lacing.

S - Bodacious scents of spice including nutmeg and clove. Some cinnamon in there too. Also get some pumpkin which blends there nicely.

T - When this brew first hits my mouth I get a lot of spice and pumpkin flavor (wish there was more pumpkin). The typical spice flavors such as nutmeg and clove. But the aftertaste had a slightly dry vegetable almost burnt flavor to it. I couldn't quite put my finger on it. It was just a bit different.

M - Crisp with a good amount of carbonation.

O - A good pumpkin brew.

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...

Aroma is top-notch -- very inviting. Pumpkin flavor and a delicate sweetness are noteworthy and push this beer up the rating scale. My only criticism is the beer seems a bit watery and flat. My wish is that the beer would have been twice as strong flavorwise (increased cost/price would be worth it!) and that it would form a rich head in the glass. That would be an A+.

This is my first beer after being sick for six days, and I am really excited to have a good one. I heard many good things about Hoppin' Frog in the past, which inclined me to pick up this bottle.

I used a snifter glass to maximize the smell coming off this beer. I get a ton of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

The Double Pumpkin is deep orange with minimal foam and carbonation.

This beer tastes very good. You get more pumpkin in taste than even in the nose. The spices balance really well with the pumpkin flavor.

Double Pumpkin is a good beer. I enjoyed this return to the suds.

It doesn't take a village to raise a child, but it does take a lot of elements to work together.

Pours an orange nearly dead liquid color. This is thick with just enough bubbles (do NOT read head) to let you know there was an attempt to carbonate it.

The nose is nutmeg, cinnamon, and of course punkin. A few faint alcohol notes as well, not sweetness, malt, hops, or anything else.

A spiced and interesting beer. There is virtually not malt back to this nor any hops. A good bit of spices and a few hints of sweetness to add flavor. The finish is nearly void of flavor.

There is no carbonation to speak of. This makes the beer an odd one to drink. It isn't so heavy in flavor or body that it is a choice it is just weird.

The beer is better than this review sounds, but just is really weird...I don't know a better way to describe it. Factor in a retail price of 12 bucks a bomber and this is a beer I won't have again.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Pours a bright orange with a fluffy two finger white cap. Streams of bubbles push their way to the top of the glass, Some mild spider web lacing.

They weren't kidding with the double. A hearty dose of booze on the nose. Fleshy pumpkin is strong, while nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon round everything out.

Fleshy pumpkin up front while the spices carry you through the finish. As this warms, the spices become a little overbearing and the booze gets a little stronger.

The feel is pretty average. Nothing groundbreaking. Boozey finish with loads of spice.

This started off pretty good, but went downhill as it warmed. The spices and booze began to dominate and it just never recovered. I prefer more pumpkin and less spice in my pumpkin ales.

A: A hazy deep orange pour, almost red. Small white head that fades quickly. A little spotty lacing.

S: Big pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and brown sugar. Sweet. Smells like a pumpkin pie mixed with a gingerbread cookie.

T: Tons of pumpkin dominates throughout. Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and a bit of vanilla creaminess.

M: Smooth medium body. Tiny bit of drying alcohol.

O: Excellent pumpkin ale. Heavy on the pumpkin but the spices don't get completely overshadowed either.
