Was so disappointed by this beer that I created a BeerAdvocate account.
First of all, the labeling on this is very misleading - it is not a pumpkin beer whatsoever - not even a pumpkin spiced beer. It is an IPA plain and simple. I thought I had a mislabeled bottle, so I called Cisco Brewers, and they said it is "not a very pumpkin-y beer". You are right Cisco, and when I buy a pumpkin beer, that's what I'm expecting. Wish I had stayed with tried and true "pumpkinhead", which is great stuff.

I can only hypothesize that the 90-pt rating from "the bros" is because if I was sitting with a bunch of pumpkin beers, and had taste fatigue, I might find a plain old IPA to be a refreshing change. But when I come in from work for my one beer (not one of a tasting panel), this one sorely disappointed me.
