Frog's Hollow Double Pumpkin Ale - Hoppin' Frog Brewery. Poured from the bomber bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is two fingers thick and off white, with sheen lacing, and a clear, reddish orange body.

Smells like a big handful of nutmeg and clove, but still with a noticeable malt backbone. I'm assuming this indicates that this will NOT be a spice bomb, which is a good thing IMO.

I taste much of the aforementioned notes, along with an almost tart balance to it. I find this to be pleasantly unique. I'm not sure if its hops doing this or some other entity, but its a superb balance and easy quaff.

The mouthfeel here is clean and crisp. I can't detect the higher abv of this brew...for now.

Overall, I'll give Frog's Hollow Double Pumpkin Ale - Hoppin' Frog Brewery a 4.5 This is certainly a hidden gem in the barrage of trendy pumpkin beers. Not too sweet, not too bland-just right.

I can't believe I never reviewed this before. It may be that the only time I had it was at a pumpkin ale tasting. Well now I have a nice bomber. Good stuff. Hoppin Frog, like other established Northeast Ohio brewers deserves my blind faith. They are a part of the good thing we got going here.

It's pumpkin colored! Hurray! There is very little head. I can't get no satisfaction on the head this week. It's very aromatic. Mostly spice but somewhat pumpkin.

The taste is a very satisfying brown ale with spice and loaded of sweet malts. Some bitters come through too, making for a nice, well rounded experience. The finish is sweet and slightly boozy. Nice. Any boozier and I would regret it tomorrow.

Nice pumpkin ale! Recommended.

Not a fan. Too syrupy. Not very complex.
