3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy ginger, lighter nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, citrus, grapefruit, and a hint of pine. It pours a cloudy dark orange with a small soapy white head that quickly fades to a thick ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of pumpkin. Thereís a pretty good citrus kick in the middle. The finish moderate grapefruit, light ginger, nutmeg, and a touch of pine. Itís light-medium bodied with somewhat soft carbonation. Overall, the pumpin/IPA combo is pretty interesting...and Iím liking it.

Aroma of nutmeg, soft pumpkin and a hint of citrus hops. Tastes of pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon with a nice citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied and delicious. A nice take on a pumpkin ale with some delicious hops. North peak continues to impress.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Jackie-Os, the very last bit of their keg... They could only fill my pint glass halfway, so they only charged me $1. Good deal. Clear pumpkin-orange color, a nice persisting white head. Decent lace. Good, hearty pumpkin aroma with nutmeg, and discernable hops. Barely any carbonation, possibly because it was the end of the keg, but Iím fine with that... I liked the texture, it was more on the lighter side, but full-flavor. Not bad.
