Tastes like a bad ipa and no pumpkin whatsoever.

Pours a slightly cloudy gold color. Thin but good lacing.
Smells skunk and vegetal.
More like a pale ale. Struggling to locate any pumpkin. Aftertaste is dry, pungent, bitter.
Crisp, medium body.
Not something I'd get again.

Refreshing to see a pumpkin beer that doesn't follow others and overload itself with spices. Reminded me of smutty pumpkin with huge vegetable flavors. Has the hopness of an ipa

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Comes out a nice golden orange with a finger of soapy white head, thick lacing.
S - Aroma is kinda odd, some citrus juice, orange peel, lemon candy, grass, sweet pumpkin and cinnamon are underneath.
T - Ok taste isnt that bad, pumpkin is mixed with the bite of the hops, which is very piney and bitter, and mid way it dominates the pumpkin and spice flavors.
M - Metallic and very bitter, medium in body.
O - Not the worst, but surely an interesting brew.

Deep golden color with excellent clarity. A half inch of eggshell white foam sits on top. Brussels lacing. Weak aroma of cereal grains and cinnamon. The taste showcases an odd blend of piny hops,cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. The mouth is fairly carbonated.
