Had this on tap and the more I sat with it, the more I liked it. The alcohol is noticeable. It tastes like a strong pumpkin ale with cinnamon, earth, slight wood, and other pumpkin spices. A pleasant surprise that is certainly worth a try.

Pours a moderate amber in color with good clarity. Offers a light hint of pumpkin on the nose yet coupled with a fairly complex blend of malts and some spicy hops. Bit of caramel belies. Aroma expands with warming and is pretty well balanced actually.

Pumpkin reveals itself on the tongue and a bit unexpected actually given aroma. Starts softly but then builds to a mini crescendo of sorts, and then fades away in a similar fashion, yet in a good way. Pumpkinesque through the palate yet pleasant and agreeable. ABV is invisible and an easy drinking brew.

Pleasant and appropriately coarse feel. Pretty solid and nicely done. And thank you for the lack of 'fake pumpkin' in the profile.

A - An aggressive pour yields a clear golden amber with a couple fingers of off-white foam. Settles to a nice cap atop the beer with a few webs of lacing that all stick around for the duration of the beer.

S - Aroma is heavy on the pie spices. The 8% alcohol is somewhat phenolic upon a deep sniff, but it provides some nice heat along with the spice character; very holiday-esque. Big crystal malt. A little bit of pumpkin-flesh tannin far in the background.

T - Flavor is initially heavy on the spices, but a candy-like sweetness provides some immediate contrast. The finish is astringent; showcasing the harsher aspects of heavy spicing and a high alcohol content.

M - Medium body and slightly creamy texture. Good carbonation. A tad syrupy as it moves over the palate.

O - A perfectly serviceable pumpkin ale, and another welcome addition to California; a land once devoid of pumpkin ale options. However, this beer falls into the category of "liquid candle." I won't be revisiting this one, but well worth a try and a worthwhile participant in a pumpkin beer tasting.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/8/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big pumpkin, caramel, brown sugar, honey, gingerbread, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, toast, and herbal/spice earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big pumpkin, caramel, brown sugar, honey, gingerbread, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, toast, and herbal/spice earthiness. Some light earthy herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, caramel, brown sugar, honey, gingerbread, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, toast, and herbal/spice earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice imperial pumpkin ale style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; and very smooth and fairly crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
