I've been eager to try this one for a while, but couldn't bring myself to get a 4-pk or case... Finally found a single yesterday...

A - Slightly more than a finger's worth of fairly standard light khaki colored head comprised of medium sized bubbles and a waffled batter like top... Better than average retention for the style leaves a full rich lacing... A decent bit of medium bubbled carbonation that swirls to the top with a sluggish to moderate pacing... The color is a very pale golden amber... Loads of lacing clings to the sides of the glass....

S - Unlike other Pumpkin Ales, the hops take center stage... While unexpected the hop forward aroma is quite pleasant... A bunch of complex secondary notes are buried further down... Sweet potatoes... Caramel... Bread crust... Biscuit... Just a touch of brown sugar...

T - Like chewing on fresh hop cones... The hops dominate more on the palate than they did on the nose... The gourd flavor is buried way beneath the surface and is a bit difficult to detect... The bready malt base is rather subdued as well... The fresh hop presence lingers on the finish for quite a bit...

M -Medium bodied... Clean... Crisp... Straight forward... Brisk carbonation... A slightly bit oily...

D - An interesting concept, but my fears of mixing pumpkin and hop successfully seem to have come true... The flavor profile never really melds well and actually seem to conflict one another... Not a bad beer and rather still drinkable, but neither a memorable pumpkin nor hop experience... The end result is something that I'm likely not to recommend nor seek out in the future... However, I still love most of what Sixpoint puts out and I commend their efforts here...

16 ounce can into imperial pint glass, best before 12/30/2012. Pours hazy orange copper color with a 2 finger dense off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, caramel, orange zest, pine, floral, toast, bread, citrus rind, herbal, and earthy spiciness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and hop complexity. Taste of grapefruit, caramel, toast, biscuit, orange rind, pine, pepper, clove, floral, light nuttiness, herbal, and earthy spiciness. Good amount of spicy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, caramel, orange rind, bread, toast, pepper, floral, and earthy spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance of flavors with a good sweetness/bitterness balance; minimal cloying flavors noticed after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice holiday spiced wet hop IPA. Nice hop complexity with good malt and spiciness balance; very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

A single CAN into a 16oz Hulmeville Inn/Sixpoint pint glass.

Autumnation pours into the glass a semi hazy burnt orange with some bronze tints mimicking a sunset. The foam was tan/gold in color with an inch but died leaving no lace.

Smell is pretty standard pumpkin ale fare and kinda muted in scent. Pumpkin spice with some nutmeg and cinnamon. Hops are not present, a standard back malting.

This is what I expected, some subtle spice with some pumpkin flavor in the back. The taste is not all that large, it's not pumpkin pie, but nutmeg over cinnamon with a grassy aftertaste that's light. It comes and goes like that.

Pretty light bodied, may be the lightest of the style to date for me. Thin with light carb. The aftertaste is non existent, spice, malt, nothing. No legs.

This is pretty decent stuff. Not being a huge fan of the style I find this easy as pie to take down. 6.8% is a bit big and right for the flavor involved. I would like to find a happy medium between this and pumKING in both taste and ABV as I have not yet found a favorite Pumpkin brew.

Pint can poured into a large snifter.

A: Pours an orange amber color, fairly see through. Very little head to speak of, and minimal lacing. Well carbonated.

S: If I'm basing the smell off of what its listed as, pumpkin ale, it falls short. If I were to base it on an IPA, its pretty solid and fairly different. I decided to try and do this review down the middle of the road. Trying my best to keep both styles in mind.

T: Run into the same dilemma here. As a pumpkin ale, it fails to deliver. Not getting that much pumpkin flavor at all actually. That doesn't mean the beer isn't tasty however. As an IPA its fairly solid. Again I'm going to have to combine the scores here into middle of the road score.

M: Lot of action from the carbonation, sweet, lighter bodied. Sticky residue that lingers.

O: If comparing this to other pumpkin beers, it falls short. When reviewing it as a stand alone beer however, its really quite good. I thoroughly enjoyed the beer, and would buy it again. Just keep in mind, you want a traditional pumpkin beer, this isn't the beer you're looking for.

Hoppy pumpkin ale, you say? And on sale? And still with plenty of time before the expiry date arrives? Sign me up!

Pours like a regular ol' pumpkin ale, smells like hops with a light dose of toffee and ginger. Not much in the way of your run of the mill pumpkin ale flavors, but then again those are usually pumpkin pie spices, not actual pumpkin so I can't really complain. What's there is nice, even if it's not quite what I was expecting.

Tastes pretty much the same as it smells: pine hops up front, moving in to ginger, toffee, and a little bit of butternut sqaushiness backed up with very light pumpkin pie spice. It's a neat combination with plenty going on. Doesn't gel together completely perfectly, as the heavy hops kind of blot out the back end complexities, but it's nice, interesting, and plenty drinkable.

My sister had these in her fridge and offered them to us during the football games before Thanksgiving dinner. Totally new brewery to me, so glad to get the free samples. 16oz cans with a best before date on the bottom of the can. Mine says "best before Dec. 30, 2012", so it's within the reccomended drinking period.

The beer poured a hazy light orange color with a gigantic 4-finger rocky white head. Retention was good and lacing was plentiful. No complaints in the looks department.

Big citrus hop smell ... but where's the pumpkin, or at least give me some of the pumpkin spices. Not a trace of cinnamon, nutmeg, or clove to be found. It's not an unpleasant smell, just not a pumpkin ale smell.

This would taste OK if it were a pale ale, but not a good taste for a pumpkin ale. If a beer is going to call itself a pumpkin ale then it ought to taste like pumpkin - and this does not even come close. This is a very tasty hoppy brew with the citra hops dominating the flavor. I get lots of grapefruit, orange peel, and tangerine flavor along with some sweet malt for balance. It's also spiced with ginger. Bitterness is high with 74 IBU's, and some of the 6.7% alcohol is noticeable in the background.

Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Some nice bitterness lingers in the aftertaste.

This is a good tasting beer, but I'm knocking it down in score for its failure to taste like what it's supposed to be. As a pumpkin ale it fails miserably.

This is an interesting beer. I thought it was going to be pumpkin smash....but it was not. Quite bitter in fact....bitter as grapefruit. The appearance is very good. Cleasr copper orange with think frothy white head that is lacing lke a Vicky Secrets catalog. The smell has a lot of hop to it nice and fresh. The taste is bitter with sweet malts trying to balance the beer. There was a slight metallic twang to this as well. The first taste was bullied by alcohol....the second on was a bit more balanced and drinkable. Themouthfeel is medium with smooth carbonation. Overall it reminds me of Havest Ale from Goose Island...but not as good. However....I am gld to try this beer and would drink it again.

Wow! What a great American IPA. I love this beer.

The scent is amazing. Pine. Citrus. Grapefruit. Very potent. I want an air freshener in my house that smells like this. Fantastic.

Great head and lacing.

I don't really taste pumpkin, but I don't care. This is great beer. Similar to Sierra Nevada Fresh Hop Ale, but more hoppy and less malty. Truly a special beer. I love the 16 oz can.

Good job, Sixpoint. Thank you.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Bustin' some John Donne fire on the can, oh yeah! This stuff pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of dusty off-white foam. The nose comprises maple syrup, very light leek, grapefruit peel, toasted pumpkin seeds, light caramel, and a hint of pumpkin shell. The taste sees a return of all of these elements, but they've split into their apparent respective camps: IPA (or fresh hop beer) and pumpkin ale. The two factions unfortunately do not cooperate fully, but instead clash at several opportunities. Suffice it to say things just don't mesh properly, but luckily the result isn't an utter and complete trainwreck, which, I feel, it could easily have become. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, an interesting beer, but one that just didn't come together very well for me.

pint can poured into a tulip glass.

A- An almost clear (hop haze) orange amber, with a fluffy three fingers of off white head. Excellent lacing down the glass.

S- Piney hops and sweet malt. Hard to pick out the pumpkin over the abundance of hops. Has a distinctive Sixpoint smell.

T- A orange/citric hop note, and big bitterness open things up. Transitions into a sweet malt, and (the prior reviewer nailed it) pumpkin flesh taste. Ends with a piney/earthy hop bitterness.

M- I love the mouthfeel of this beer, the pumpkin really adds to the creaminess, and slick, slightly medium to full mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

O- A very interesting take on a pumpkin beer. Certainly will have it again.

Reviewed from notes from 10/29/12.

A- Pours a beautiful orange/amber with a billowing white head with excellent retention and lacing.

S- Strong floral aromas make the fresh (wet) hops obvious. You can smell a sweet/bready malt backbone, and a hint of citrus, spice and pumpkin.

T- The malts and spice are there to start, but quickly give way to the bountiful floral and piney hops, which are sweet at first, but finish with a good bit of dry bitterness.

M- Mouthfeel is light to medium with decent carbonation.

O- A great fall beer! If this were billed just as a harvest beer/fall beer I think it would be more well received. I would expect more spice and pumpkin from a pumpkin beer, but that doesn't mean this isn't a delicious beer!

A - Pours a beautiful ruby red with an orangey tinge. a tightly pack two fingers worth of off-white foam. Dissipates rather quickly and leaves a film of tiny spots of lacing on the glass.

S - Nose is bright, sweet and hoppy. Orange peel and tangerine pulp citrus notes are at the forefront. Ginger spice notes add a layer of sweetness to the citrus fruits. Leafy green notes, slightly resinous and piney round out the aroma.

T - slightly sweet, toasty, and just a bit pumpkin-y (maybe). leafy and resinous in the center. Plenty of citrus fruit juiciness as well. Bitterness linger on well past the finish.

M - medium nearing full bodied. incredibly smooth texture. medium carbonation.

O - Excellent take on the fresh hop ale. pumpkin must be what lends the luxurious mouthfeel and the ginger adds lovely depth to the hop character.

Served on tap in a tulip

Pours a very slightly hazy orange color with a small white head. The beer itself drinks like a hop forward pale ale. The hop profile is nice and citrusy, a lot of orange and peaces. The beer has a good feel to it, thick but smooth and not too overwhelming. There is a nice nutmeg and cinnamon spice to this beer but it's not too noticable until the beer starts to warm up. This beer is half pumpkin ale and half fresh hop ale. Easy drinking and very tasty stuff.

16 oz can poured into a DFH snifter.

Pours a brownish orange color with a finger of sticky, resiny foam. Aroma is extremely hoppy, fully of citrus hop flavor. Reading on Sixpoint's website, I see this beer is wet-hopped with Citra hops this year, and it certainly comes through.

First sip is is malty hop bomb. Tons of hop flavor. This tastes like a brown IPA to me, the pumpkin doesn't come through to me at all, but this is a good thing. Nice viscosity adds mouthfeel but any accompanying sweetness is overwhelmed by hop flavor.

Sixpoint does an amazing job of pushing style envelopes. This beer is totally unique, and being a hophead, I totally dig it. I didn't even realize this beer had pumpkin in it until I went to review the last of the 4-pack here.

Holy Citra HOPS, Batman!

Aroma: complex hop aroma with a sweet malt reminiscent of caramel and toast. Citra hops galore- smells straight off the vine.
Appearance: Transparent autumnal amber with visible carbonation and thick creamy off white head.
Taste: Pine & citrus hops. Perfectly bitter hop taste balanced with a mild sweetness from the malt.
Mouthfeel: an enjoyable viscosity. Medium in body and nice amount of carbonation- definitely makes the flavors dance.

This was a nice break from all the overly spiced-pumpkin/ seasonal beers- Really enjoyable to get other tastes from the season (the fresh hops).

16 oz can into a tulip glass. Best Before December 30, 2012.

A - Pours a clear light brown body with a fluffy two finger white head. Very dense and thick with great lacing ad retention.

S - Piney and resinous hops, light spice, caramel malts.

T - Piney and oily hops lead into smooth caramel malt. Light spice presence with a slight mineral finish and lasting bitterness. Pumpkins? Nope. Mouth feel is slickand medium bodied.

O - A confusing but tasty beer. Somewhere in between a wet hopped ale and a spiced autumn beer, this one oddly works.

Hoping for a beer that’s perfect for the season; I’m sure Sixpoint can deliver.

A: Frothy, finger-high tan head over a golden-amber body, reminiscent of fall foliage. A thin layer of lacing circles around the inside of the glass as the head recedes to a mere dusting.

S: Roasted barley and caramel malt show off spiced breads, toffee, toast, and anise. Pretty loaded with hops, too, showing tart aromas of green apple, pine, and oily residues; pretty big spiciness, teeming with additional notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, and allspice. Basically a hoppy amber ale with a little spice.

T: Bitter, rindy hops give pine, lime rind, and herbal intensity upon first sip – fiery cinnamon and ginger come in soon after. There’s a good bready tone, spiced like pumpernickel, with blackened toast tastes over vanilla doughiness. This really is a light beer, with a pale, hoppy character overall. Aftertaste is a puckering astringency, settling with toasted bread and dark spice in moderate intensity.

M: Has the canned beer character that I’ve always known: smooth, creamy bubbles in a thin body. It’s consistent for the brewery, and it works here.

O: If you like fall beers but aren’t ready to give up your summer hops, here’s your beer: no huge malt thickness, but enough grain presence to keep this more than just a dark-malted pale ale. This is autumn in genuine Sixpoint fashion.

This one pours a light bodied dark amber in color with a one finger, very soapy and creamy off white head. It looks like the other Sixpoints, built for a can. The nose is slightly bitter with a fruity hop character with a good amount of amber malt to balance it out. The flavors are weird. It's dry and bitter, with plenty of amber malt and slight spice. The Citra hops certainly don't stand out and neither does the pumpkin. It's more of a hoppy amber with light spicing. It drinks light in body and an off dry. The bitterness is a detractor. Overall this was a strange beer and I wouldn't say that it worked. If they would've called this a hoppy amber it would've graded higher, but marginally so. This beer just needed more balance.

16oz can poured into a snifter. Best by date of 12-30-12 labeled on bottom of can.

A- Pours a clear dark orange color. About a fingers worth of white head quickly fades, leaving lots of foam along the sides of the glass.

S- All hops in the smell. I got a nice hop blast upon popping the can open. Hops mostly smell of citrus, with maybe a bit of some pine notes on the backend.

T- Starts with hops, as expected. Lots of citrus- grapefruit, orange and mango are noticeable. I also get pine notes as in the smell. Finishes with a spicy maltiness, with maybe a hint of caramel.

M- Medium bodied, well carbonated, dry, bitter. Low alcohol makes it an easy drinker.

Like many others have said, this is really a wet hopped IPA rather than a pumpkin ale. I don't get any pumpkin notes, though I do get some of the spicy malt notes that are normally found in Pumpkin ales. I enjoyed this one.

A: Golden-copper-orange with a big, fluffy, off-white head leaving behind plenty of lace and retention.

S: Big, fresh, fruity citrus hops that explode with bitterness and resin. As it warms, the fall spices come through.

T: Fresh, delicious, bitter hops with oils and resin that cover your palate in fresh hop flavor. There are faint hints of ginger and pumpkin/fall spice as the beer description indicates. It's especially prevalent in the finish as the beer warms.

M: Fresh, huge flavor, smooth and creamy, and properly carbonated. Well-crafted.

O: As many others have stated, this is not a Pumpkin Ale. It's a fresh or "wet" hop Pale Ale or IPA with some fall spices thrown in. That being said, why knock the beer for a mislabeled beer style on BA?! Sixpoint doesn't refer to it as a Pumpkin Ale. People are giving low scores for no reason other than that. Score it for what it is...a fresh hop ale. And a damn good one at that. I bought one can to try it as I was skeptical but this is awesome. We don't get many fresh hop brews on the East Coast so I will certainly pick up a 4-pack now.

16oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice shiny, hazy burnt golden. Really nice fluffy white head that sticks around and leaves really nice lacing. Ok, there's no way this is a pumpkin ale. Smells like a malty IPA, straight up. There's a ton of orange peel blended with some caramel and chocolate malts. There's also a touch of garlic. The flavors basically match the nose. Hops dominate. The hop flavor definitely shines. More caramel and cocoa. No pumpkin or spices going on at all. Mouthfeel isn't bad. Strong carbonation, light and watery, but strong body and smooth enough. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

I'm really confused here. There is nothing about this beer that reminds me of a pumpkin ale. I mean nothing! It's actually a decent beer and nice for the fall season. But if they were going for a "Pumpkin IPA", then where's the pumpkin and spices? Traditional pumpkin ale fans will more than likely be disappointed. But if you keep an open mind, you can enjoy the beer for what it is. I personally wouldn't even put this beer in the "pumpkin ale" category. I don't see why they advertise it as such.

Serving Type - 16oz can

Appearance - Tanish pumpkin brown, foamy 1/2 inch head and nice lacing.

Smell - Malts, spices, hops, Nut, brown sugar, some mollasses. I dont get any pumpkin, cinnamin, allspice, or anything to do with pumpkin other the brown sugar.

Taste - Um, starts off very hoppy, dry wet hops. Plenty of citric fruits like orange, pineapple, grapefruit. Malt backbone adds some carmael, nutty flavors. Added sugars like molasses add some bold sugary flavor. I think, i taste some pumpkin in the finish, or maybe its just nutty malts....

Mouthfeel - Hops coat tounge with bitterness. Sugars add some balance to the dry bitter hops. Palate gets more hops, malts, spices, and um, i think thats pumpkin in the finish. Aftertaste is dry, bitter and malty.

Overall - This cant be a pumpkin ale? Its hoppy, with malt backbone. This is closer to the wet hopped beers coming out. I guess there is pumpkin flavor in this but man, its very hard to find it until the very end. Pumpkin ales are my least fav of the seasonals so naturaly i really enjoyed this one since it lacks the main flavor that all the others have. A nice wet hopped beer, balanced, smooth and easy to drink.

16oz Tall Boy with a Best Before date on the bottom of the can of 30DEC2012. Pours a semi translucent vibrant orange with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. Aromas of citrus and floral hops, spices, earth, and a hint of pumpkin. The taste is a nice mix of floral hops with a hint of sweet orange. Earthiness and spices are the most prevalent flavors along with a good amount of malts. Bitter floral hop finish. Not really picking up on much, if any pumpkin. Silky mouthfeel. I bought this one on accident not knowing it was a Pumpkin beer, which I hate, but when i was told there was very little pumpkin flavor I decided to give it a try. Im glad I did. This tastes more like a Spiced Beer or maybe even an Oktoberfest than a Pumpkin Beer. Overall, decent beer I'd grab again.

16 oz can pours a lightly hazed dark gold color with ample white-ish head. Decent retention and great lacing. It is a very good looking brew.

Nose is herbal and citric hops with a bit of minerality to it and a fair shake of toasty malt. This is the most un-pumpkin beer I have ever smelled.

Taste is mostly hops with a little bit of malty sweetness. More IPA than pumpkin beer, but that isnt always a bad thing, a refrain from spices can be refreshing. It has a nice balance and flow from hop flavor to malty middle and biter finish. Its good, easy to put back and is one of those beers you pour into a tulip and the whole pint does not fit...but you are damn glad when your glass is empty and you still have 3-4 oz in the can!
