On tap at GABBF. Pours a mostly clear copper orange color with a small white head. A big fruity spicy nose. The flavor is sugary base, fresh fruit, maybe some pumpkin or others spices, light bitterness. Very sugary sweet. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Clear orange color with a small white head. Aroma is caramel malt with distinct vanilla, toffee, and a little bit of cinnamon. Flavor is caramel, toffee, booziness. Not a ton of pumpkin. Some but not as much as you may expect. Also pretty light hop presence. But very nice. I like it a lot.

Draft at Scion, shared by Gene, thanks! Poured a ruby amber color with a small white wispy head. Aroma was light spice, boozy malt notes. Flavor was light pumpkin pie. Alcohol is there, but isn’t "hot" which was nice.

Some clove and boiled down malt here. Manages to pull off hybrid aroma, sitting in the middle of both styles. But still not wonderful either way. Finishes a little sweet. Pours maroon with OK head and lacing. Thanks to Travlr for a taste of this at Scion, draft.

Sample at Denver Rare Beer Tasting VI on 10/03/2014. Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lace. Aroma of malt, caramel and pumpkin spice. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, pumpkin pie and earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a pumpkin and caramel aftertaste. Above average overall.

Pours hazy orange no head.
Smell fruity pumpkin and red fruit.
Taste mashy gourd, bit of veggies, sweet with a bit of booze on the tail.
I really like this one.
