3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Orangish caramel, hazy, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Fragrant orangish hop aroma, a little candyish, soft spices.   Seems like a very spicy and floral Pale Ale.   Soft hop up front, followed by a citrusy like spiced background, orange and cinnamon together.   Not bad, but a little odd.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering spices, a little artificial at times tho.   Not an IPA, not a Pumpkin, but more like a spiced up Pale Ale that closely resembles a shandy or something.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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 I’m fine with that... I liked the texture, it was more on the lighter side, but full-flavor. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint glass at The Jolly Pumpkin brewpub in Ann Arbor. This is clear and light copper with a soapy white head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is pumpkin pie. Pumpkins were added in the recipe. They are not big in the flavor, though, and are more of an undertone. The hops are citrus with pine. Instead of caramel notes I get the pumpkin pie. Bitterness is significant. The pumpkin doesn’t radically change this IPA but does enhance and makes it unique and interesting.

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. There’s a pretty good citrus kick in the middle. The finish moderate grapefruit, light ginger, nutmeg, and a touch of pine. It’s light-medium bodied with somewhat soft carbonation. Overall, the pumpin/IPA combo is pretty interesting...and I’m liking it.
