On tap at JP A2. Pours a clear gold with a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma has a real nice pine and grapefruit note with subtle pumpkin and spice lying underneath. Flavor has much more pumpkin and spice with the hops blending into the background.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2011
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 I’m fine with that... I liked the texture, it was more on the lighter side, but full-flavor. Not bad.

Draft @ Dutch’s. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium sized off white head. Nose has the pumpkin and spices that are usually present in these beers. Additional notes of spicy herba hops and bready malts. The flavor opens with pumpkin and spices before being overwhelmed by herbal hops, bready malt and a strong general bitterness. When La Parcela is part of your portfolio, this is a dissapointment.

b3shine (8196) - Indiana, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a completely transparent light caramel gold with foamy white head. Smells of piney and citrus hops along with mild notes of pumpkin and a bittersweet mouthfeel. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but sweeter and stickier than I prefer.

PorterPounder (7432) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - World Market - 12 oz stubby bottle. Pours a slightly murky medium golden, tight snow white head, hint of lacing. Aroma has some grassy notes, a touch of mint and some pumpkin spice. Flavor has some pumpkin spice notes, some light ripening vegetable funkiness, a light trace of spearmint. Mouthfeel has a decent spritz to it. Better than expected based on my previous experience with North Peak.

JaBier (7027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2011
On tap at Buffalo Wings & Rings, East Broad St in Reynoldsburg. Pours a clear orange with a medium off-white head. Spicy malty and hoppy aroma, but pretty faint. Flavor starts with malt and cinnamon, than some grassy hops creep in, followed by spicy ginger before a bitter hop finish.
