12 ounce bottle poured into a Harpoon IPA strange

A: Dark amber, minimal head, good carbonation

S: Slight pumpkin, biscuit, nutmeg. It is almost like a Marzen crossed with some pumpkin and spices.

T: The taste fails on this beer. The front is biscuit and spicy caramel. There does not appear to be much pumpkin or spices in the taste.

M: Smooth, clean beer.

This is more like a mediocre Marzen and lacks the pumpkin and spices. Good brewery, but not a good representation of the style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Copper, clear. Little head.

S - Cloves and more cloves. Missing the pumpkin pie smell

T - Harsh spice clove/nutmeg flavors, nothing subtle, no pumpkiny taste. Quick finish with some bitterness.

M - Some tingling carbonation

Not for me. Over the top flavor, lacks balance.

Poured into pint glass, no head.. Hm maybe my pour??

Took a swig and enjoyed the taste, but it was flat and faded quickly. No lacing along the glass edge. Average smell, pretty mild. Interesting burnt orange color I kind of enjoy though.

Nice initial flavor but thats about all its got going for it, aside from being a local beer. Im suprised at this one, wonder if it has anything to do with being in the " create your own 6 pack section ".
