A: A modest half finger head was produced when poured into a standard pint glass. the off white bubbles quickly fell leaving a ring around the edge of the glass. The liquid is a copper to pumpkin orange color with a very hazy apperance that I can just bearly see my hand through on the other side. it almost looks like there is an interesting gradiant, layered color affect going on, interesting.

S: Fruity yeast esters on my first impression. A sweet toffee and cinnamon mixed with a subte pumpkin and all spice nose that comes out when the beer is roused. A slight bit of spicey hop character also.

T: Firm bitterness, surprisingly so for the style, followed by a mouth full of all spice and cloves that seems over powering after the bitterness. There is a very low pumpkin flavor in the middle but the spices are definatly dominant in the flavor profile. Hop flavor and fermentation character are hard to detect from all the spice in this one.

M: Very drying mouth sensation despite the low carbonation. its like taking a mouth full of spices (exagerating here). moderate body.

O: Very clowing and spice forward beer with a bitterness that gives the pallet a sensation of heat. Definatly not a fan of it, but It was worth a shot at a hoppy pumpkin beer, kudos on trying something different however.

I was really exciting to see "Hoppy Pumpkin Ale" on the bottle but I was disappointed after I finished my first bottle. It looks like a pumpkin ale should but tastes like pale ale should. Has a very very light body and medium amount of bitterness. Label is misleading pumpkin taste is to be desired.

Poured from tap at World Wines & Liquor about a week ago into a clean, clear pint glass for $3.00. Review from notes.

A Murky pumpkin orange body under a significant, creamy light brown head. Good look. 4.0

S Barley husks and only minimal pumpkin and sweet malt. Maybe I have been spoiled by other great Pumpkin Ales but this smell leaves me wanting more. 3.0

T Barley malt that I picked up in the smell predominates also in the taste. In fact, there is very little pumpkin taste available to my palate. 2.5

M Thin, and too thin for the style. 2.0

D/O Not good since the taste and feel leave me wanting more. 3.0
