Well, you are the seasonal beer lover.
Starr Hill Boxcarr Pumpkin Porter
Schlafly and Lakefront Pumpkin Lager are my all-time favorites, one hefty, warming pumpkin and one easy drinking pumpkin lager!
I really like the Whole Hog Pumpkin. I can't wait for the barrel-aged version!
When is the BA version happening?
Uhm... I see you figured it out then...
Do they exist? I love pumking, but am curious if a straight up pumpipa exists. Has any one tried to dry hop a straight up pumpkin beer with a french press or anything like that?
If it hasn't been done already, you know its only a matter of time before it happens. Mikkeler tried a coffee IPA, although the reviews say that there's no real coffee flavor.
I've never had this, and I have no idea if it still exists, but at least one pumpkin IPA has been made, http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/700/86009.
Elysian out of Seattle makes a ton of pumpkin beers and they made a pumpkin IPA last year, but I never tried it.
I think Sixpoint Autumnation closely resembles what you're looking for.
What about a Pumpkin Saison or a Pumpkin Vienna Lager?
Pump saisin doesn't sound bad for real
Stone did a coffee IPA and it was awesome.
Aardwolf did a coffee IPA, too. It was awesome
North Peak Hooligan is a hoppy pumpkin ale and has been called a "pumpkin IPA"..
I agree, except for I didn't get any pumpkin/spices at all out of that beer..
When did you have it? They changed the recipe starting this year and removed the pumpkin/spice, not sure if its been released this year though..
I got pumpkin spices, it just wasn't graham crackery.
I had it last year..
For what it's worth, I recall someone at Sixpoint (I think it was Shane, and possibly on this site though I can't find whatever I'm referring to) saying that they found the actual flavor of pumpkin really doesn't stick around in the beer. The sugars from the pumpkin ferment out pretty well, if I recall correctly. But again, don't quote me on that because I can't find a link right now to back me up on that.
This is super random but does anyone watch MasterChef? In Season 2 there was a guy on there who told Gordon Ramsay that he brews his own Pumpkin IPA... He posted the recipe on Homebrewtalk, so make your own (extract only):
I agree that the actual flavor of pumpkin is pretty bland and basically goes unnoticed.. but I recalled Autumnation having zero spices and zero qualities of anything that resembles a pumpkin ale.. It's a nice fall beer, but I remember thinking it was "false advertisement", lol..
Haha, fair enough. I suppose the labeling of "pumpkin ale" or something similar could rightly be assumed to indicate whatever "pumpkin ale" means to the majority of folks out there. So, probably a rich amber ale with a shitload of baking spices and some pumpkin-ish flavor; Autumnation would be a pretty big contrast to that.
I hope they don't exist.. that sounds dreadful. What about beer that is 'just' an IPA.. or Saison... or Vienna Lager.....
Because that's fucking boring, and I'm from America, so if I want a turd cutter ipa, I'll have it!
I hope not.
Well if there's not, they should get on that.
And you know what, while they're at it, an Oktoberfest IPA would be fantastic.
I'll just stick with my IPA IPA's thanks.
I tried to brew a pumpkin vienna lager once. Yeah, about that - oh what a failure. Now I know I'm not a professional, but I'll give credit to whoever can brew it good.
I know nothing about brewing beer, but brewing that sounds like a toughie.
still wondering why this is still labeled a pumpkin ale, I mean I like it, but all the times I've had, where is the pumpkin whatsoever in that beer?
Those folks taste buds must be shot because Mikkeller Koppi IPA smells like coffee and has a very up front coffee flavor. Maybe my buds were just poppin' that day. Pumpkin IPA could be nice if it's done up right.
Not even sure why I tried? Queue Dierks Bentley " What Was I Thinkin'?"
Only thing I can think of was incorrect sparging temperatures of the pumpkin. Maybe try again some day, sorry OP for kinda gettin' off topic. Feel free Derranged to BM me if you wanna know anything else about my homebrewing failures.
this is what I've been lookin' for! I need to go to homebrewtalk more often. Thanx Corey76.
I don't think I would try that, but something tells me it might be close to a bad English IPA ....? maybe ...
Pretty sure this year they are completely removing any pumpkin/spice that was in the recipe to focus on fresh hops. Can't wait for this one, fresh all mosaic hopped beer. Should be awesome.
Hooligan from North Peak
I want nutmeg hops
