Decent beer. Aroma was a nice mix of pumpkin spices. Nutmeg, cinnamon and a weird lemon hop in the background. Pour was a medium brown with a thin white film for a head. Taste was good. A little thin, but very unique. The pumpkin pie spices start out the sip with bitter grapefruit hops lingering after the swallow. The hops/pumpkin flavors don’t clash as much as I was anticipating. Nice carbonation round the beer out.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured murky, brown, big tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, malts and grain. Taste is sweet, lots of pumpkin, malts and some spices... Interesting and certainly a nice addition to the pumpkin beer season.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices and old hops plus caramel malts and dough. Flavor is not good. Average texture. Overall, I would like to report that a low quality beer has been ticked.

guzzler67 (1571) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Swarthy amber appearance with a large beige head and good lacing. Aroma of resinous hops eclipsed by seasonal spices. Hops come more into focus in the flavor but do not dominate, as they match up well with the caramel and spices. Both feed off each other in the aftertaste as well. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel and an average length finish.

radio_nowhere (1214) - Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle into tulip glass, cloudy golden-hued rusty amber color with tan head. Aroma notes of strong pumpkin pie spices, citrus hops and caramel malt. Taste adds pine/grapefruity bitterness, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin, Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry, sticky with lingering citrus hop/pumpkin spice finish. It’s as balanced for as hopped up pumpkin ale it is, interesting one to try at least once.

Drake (10703) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2015
12 ounce bottle from Wegman’s Lake Manassas. Clear copper, large foamy tan head, decent retention. Aroma of sweet pumpkin and citrus hops. The taste is pumpkin, caramel, vanilla, spicy and citrus hops. Medium bodied, decent balance. Nice beer.

crossovert (9593) - Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2015
355ml bottle. Hazed golden/amber pour. This is just a pumpkin beer, if they didn’t add the spice this might be unique but if you like cinnamon/nutmeg/cloved spice beers its a slightly hopppier one.

Stampion (188) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Overall a good fall pumpkin spiced beer. The hops and spice complement each other nicely. A bit of pine and citrus is followed by some cinnamon and nutmeg. A nice sweet pumpkin flavor is beneath it all. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler. Drank at night. Citrus and pumpkin aroma. The taste is more pumpkin and spice, but there is still some hop. Really interesting.
