One of the most orange looking beers Iíve ever had. Verges on Gatorade-like. An aggressive pour yielded a healthy looking head that disappeared within about a minute.
Pumpkin and a little malt. Straight up. You may think I mean pumpkin pie. I donít. Just pumpkin. The raw, fruiting body of plants from the Cucurbita genus.
Very odd. Seems to focus more on the plant itself, rather than the spices that complement it. Theyíre there, but the raw pumpkin itself is center stage. Itís very malty and sweet with intense pumpkin flavor, but the spices donít come out in a big way until the finish.
Iíd seen this one all over the place and had been meaning to give it a try. Itís certainly something unusual; the malt and raw pumpkin flavors seem to give this beer a sort of dual nature- sweet and mellow, but bright and fruity. Itís interesting beer, but Iím not quite sure what to make of it.

Dogfish Head punkin is still one of my favorite pumpkinís on the market. However, the only reason it isnít a 5, is that this year they changed something. The alcohol % was different and the flavor wasnít there like it was before. I bought cases of this stuff from dog fish head brewery directly and brought them across the country to poor little Idaho where we are dogfish head deprived and it is a different beer from them. However, it is still one of the better ones out there.

I get the well blended aromas of punkin, nutmeg, and cinamon in this crystal clear bronze orangie colored brew with a small white head around the rim of the glass. Pretty much straight forward with the punkin taste. Nice and crisp with a rather lightish body for what i was expecting. A solid brew worth a buy.

This is a pumpkin beer. I don't like pumpkin beers. This pumpkin beer is okay because it isn't overpowered by cinnamon & sugar like a pumpkin pie. There are some hops and a cool malt profile in this pumpkin beer. In the realm of pumpkin beers, this is solid.

Pours a darker orange, lacy head with lots of carbonation. Aroma is malt with slight pumpkin. Pumpkin spice flavor with a malt and pumpkin back. Noticeable alcohol aftertaste and relatively clean mouthfeel.

One of my favorite pumpkin beers. Heavy in spices and pumpkin tastes. It is perfect for fall when the weather gets colder and you need Dogfish Head to bring the flavor.

On tap at The Hopping Pig in San Diego. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma is slight pumpkin and slight malt. Nutmeg also. No pumpkin pie sweetness. Fairly dry. Ok but not my favorite in the style.

On draft poured in pint glass. Aroma was a little lacking, no head. Tastes light a "light" pumpkin beer. Overall, for a seasonal, Iíd recommend.

Well-balanced spice aroma, amber color, pleasing bitterness along with a complex but, again, balanced spice palette. Definitely NOT pumpkin pie filling in a bottle, this is a good representative for this seasonal staple.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours copper with a off white head. Taste pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.
