Bottle. Pours a dark orange color with white head. Pumpkin, grassy, fresh garden aromas. Pumpkin, hoppy, grassy, slight resiny flavors. Fun, different take on a pumpkin beer.

Art (2413) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Pours a murky reddish brown with yeasty chunks in it. Frothy light tan head. Aroma of light orangey hops but mostly pumpkin pie spices. Taste is lightly bitter with a slightly dry spicy finish. Medium body with medium light carb. Interesting but nothing great.

Butters (3983) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Dark muddled amber orange pour with fair tan head. The aroma isn’t bad, but I Just couldn’t really get behind the way that hops and the pumpkin played off each other. Kinda clashed and just tasted like a vegetal pale ale. I guess there’s a reason why I haven’t seen a pumpkin ipa before...

Earthy, metallic, with pine and pumpkin. Spices with a bit of malt. I am sure the hops are in there, but they’ve just sort of mixed in with everything else. Meh.

trapped (1512) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 29, 2015
Cask @ Alewife. Hazy reddish dark amber with small foamy beige head, fruity (grape) aroma, low carbonation, low carbonation, caramel taste with little hops influence, noticeable alcohol undertones, not really strong in the pumpkin area.

Blairgus (3467) - California, USA - SEP 29, 2015
29 sept 2015, tap. Hazy brown. Nose is spiced pumpkin. Thin/med body and moderately fizzy. Lightly spiced pumpkin background with more dominant pine hops that give it a noticeable bitter bite. Interesting.

onceblind (5884) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Hazy deep copper with a thin off ivory cap. Strange but pleasing nose of pumpkin spice and floral/piney American hops. Bitter flavor of resiny piney hops and grapefruit peel, mild bitter acidity, finishing with sweet ginger-tinted pumpkin flesh and classical pumpkin spice. Very unique and different but it comes across a bit bitter and acidic for my preferences.

rejtable (1858) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Pours amber/orange with lots of head and lots of lacing. NOse is spice clove and grapefruit. Aromas of pumpkin, earthy bitterness, grapefruit, spice. Taste is medium bitter and medium sweet. Full sticky body, lively carbonation. Nice take on pumpkin beer.

Tmoney99 (12220) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle. Poured a hazy dark orange color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted pumpkin and dark spice aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium dark sweet flavor with a medium dark sweet finish of moderate duration. This is an strange beer.
