3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange-brown pour with a 2 finger, creamy, soapy off white head. Aroma is caramel, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin, light roast, cereal, hints of rustic grain and light spicy, floral and citrus hops. Flavor is full of cereal up front, then nice caramel, light toffee nuts, sweet and earthy pumpkin, light pumpkin pie spice, mostly ginger and allspice, a hint of earthy roast hay and herbal, floral and spicy hops. Light, creamy body with a light, blanketing and playfully wavy on the tongue carbonation. Really great stuff, not only great for a pumpkin beer, but an awesome session ale as well with plenty of flavor and a great mouthfeel at in an easy going and 4.4%abv package.

Bomber. Copper with some cloudiness. A decent head. Pumpkin and pie spices in the aroma. First sip is very tart bitter hops. Is there a Pumpkin IPA style? Hops are very big for the style and could be reduced. Not really a fan.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. 2015 batch. Orange-amber pour with long lasting off-white head. Decent clarity. The aroma is subdued with hints of pumpkin spice and sweet malts but nothing that jumps out at me. The body is about medium. The taste has some subtle pumpkin and yam characteristics but nothing that is overly explosive. Mild bitterness to finish.

650 ml bottle
While picking this up the clerk at the store compared it to Jackie O’s autumnal seasonal. Personally I would much rather have some Barking Pumpkin. The promise of a solid fall release dissolves over the course of a pint until you wonder what happened to the rest of the recipe. Perhaps the time of the pumpkin seasonal is not here yet.
Aroma / Appearance - A warm walnut base retains an orange hue. Paired with the creamy vanilla head it looks like dying embers in a fire pit. Pumpkin pie, whipped cream, and other sweet aspects pin this firmly in the "dessert" end of the seasonal spectrum.
Flavor / Palate - A carbonated mouthfeel bounces around the mouth with a changing profile of squash, vanilla, ice cream, and cool crust. The light body may be due to the low ABV. Even so it fades so quickly that you wonder if there should be more. Future sips do little to add complexity. Overall this promising beer falls short of being a repeat purchase.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber orange with a medium fizzy creamy head that goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is sweet malts and cinnamon.
The flavor is sweet sugary malts, some vegetal notes and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and a bit watery.
Overall, a bland pumpkin, and very restrained.
