It poured an orange/amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of pumpkin, brown sugar, some molasses and cinnamon. The taste was of pumpkin, brown sugar, molasses, caramel and some spices. Very nice.

Bomber from Casa De Oro. Tart, almost vinous nose. A hint of spice as well. Quite dry and somewhat saison-like. Decent spice. Highly carbonated. 2011 edition. 8.8%. Alcohol is quite well hidden.

StefanSD (2191) - Lakeside, California, USA - OCT 22, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Re-rated 12-08-2013, previous rating deleted as this ale has completely changed. 650 ml bottle from Sprouts. Pours a cloudy orange-brown color with a small off-white head that soon recedes to a splotchy film. The aroma is quite strong with pumpkin pie spices of nutmeg, clove, allspice and a bit of cinnamon. The taste, like the nose, is over-the-top pumpkin pie spices with nutmeg and allspice in the forefront. Amber malts, and a touch of cocoa, richly fill in the back and sides. The palate was full and a bit oily and the carbonation was lively. Finishes long with lingering cloves. Overall: Since inception this brewski has really intensified--its an altogether different beer.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 12, 2012
On tap @ Telegraph Canyon Club: poured a dark glowing orange hue with a thin formation of foam head. The aroma smells similar to that of pumpkin pie that has a heavy base of pumpkin puree and an assortment of spices. The drink is well balanced and carries a strong backbone of malts while dashes of spice come up throughout the drink but aren’t overbearing. I really enjoy how smooth the palate is and how refined the drink goes down the hatch for being a pumpkin beer recipe. This pumpkin beer is one of the better ones on the market and delivers some serious alcohol to the bloodstream. I already know this is for sure going to give me a hangover tomorrow.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 29, 2014
12oz can @ KBF 2014. Pours a murky dark amber color with a slightly off-white head. Smells of pumpkin pie along with a nice spicy earthy hop aroma. Taste has strong vegetal notes accompanied by yam and pumpkin, along with light spice and notes of nutmeg and allspice. The body is medium with a moderate carbonation and a pretty dry finish.

NikkTwist (1745) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy orange amber pour with a large foamy off-white head. Aroma of nail polish remover. Mild spicy pumpkin squash flavors. Brown sugar. Not for me.

jonnyguns (1058) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2014
Draft at The Local Eatery & Water Hole, San Diego. Fuck load of pumpkin and cinnamon spice in the nose. Taste is more over powered by the cinnamon spice. Pumpkin flavours slightly muddled. Average stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
