Well, the first thing that comes to mind is how much of a Shipyard Pumpkinhead clone it is. So if you don't like that beer, then you probably won't like this one either. It is an overly spiced pumpkin ale that leaves no subtleties.

Pours a copper/orange color, decent head, minimal lacing.

Smell is ... holy crap my nose is burning from all the pumpkin spice!

Taste is ... holy crap I think a pumpkin just threw up in my mouth, but in all seriousness, it can be overwhelming. Carbonation is solid, the mouthfeel I'd say is less watery than Pumpkinhead tends to be with it being a bit more malty and fuller in body, but make no mistake, it'd be hard to tell them apart in a blind tasting.
