This brew pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Pumpkin spices in the nose along with some malt and vanilla. Medium body with flavors of pumpkins and nutmeg on top of hops and malt. The finish is a concoction of nutmeg, clove and pumpkins with a moderately bitter hops aftertaste. Decent beer overall that doesn’t delve very far into the pumpkin patch.

orange pour. This one has the normal pumpkin and spice aroma but also has more hops than most pumpkin beers. And flavor is much hoppier than most pumpkins. The minute you think the spice and pumpkin might be too much you get a really nice hit of hops. A really good twist on the normal pumpkin beer,.
