Pours sunset orange with a small white foam. Smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and clove. Taste is pumpkin, spices, and mild sweetness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Hoppin’ Frog Frog’s Hollow Double Pumpkin Ale finishes with a soft pumpkin kiss.

Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is cinnamon, spice, pumpkin and even a bit baked apple. The palate follows the nose and taste pretty much like cinnamon flavored motts apple sauce with some pumpkin flesh to round it out. Sweet malts back up the flavors... I think I have come to the conclusion that im just not a big fan of pumpkin style beers in general

Bomber from Discount in Waukesha. Pours a golden orange with almost no head. Aroma has - duh - pumpkin. Heavy ginger and cinnamon, with allspice. Smells like gingerbread mixed into pumpkin pie. Taste is of sweet and tangy ginger, some caramel, some other spices. Light to medium bodied and sticky. Finishes sweet and spicy. If you are looking for a normal pumpkin brew opposed to a barrel aged one, this is recommended. Solid and tasty.

veel zoeter dan de rest, haast appelcider. Ruikt een beetje medicinaal maar de smaak is heerlijk. Waarschijnlijk de beste voor een zomerdag. Prachtige amberkleur maar wel troebel

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Local Option, Chicago. Poured a cloudy amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is big pumpkin! The flavour is neutral veggie with a pumpkin veggie watery palate. I’m running out of things to say about this but maybe Hoppin Frog need to stop brewing pumpkin ales but I’m biased as I don’t care much for pumpkins.

I am not a pumpkin fan so I try to rate based on style of beer. Bottle share. Small snifter. Poured an orange copper with a thin white head. Really smelled like a pumpkin pie with nutmeg, all spice, and even dough. The taste was similar. It was a little thinner than I thought it would be. Light body. Tasted like it smelled. A little boozy tasting. Finishes with the all spice really coming through.
