Tons of off-white lace all over my glass. Whoa, massive nutmeg/cinnamon bomb in the nose. Jesus, that smells great.
Taste delivers so much nutmeg & cinnamon! Pumpkin pie in my mouth. Good, yet falls short of the awesomeness shown in the aroma. Solid.

Pours dark ruby reddish amber. Very small white head. Aroma is flat out pumpkin pie; pumpkin, tasteful use of spice - really smells good. Flavor matches expectations of aroma. Just enough sweetness, spice, and hop presence - touch of alcohol. Its stays a íbeerí, which is really a compliment. Medium body. Very well done. This is good. Possibly the best overall pumpkin beer Iíve had.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Pours a semi-hazy orange color with a thin white head and a little bit of lacing. Aroma smells exactly like my Momís homemade pumpkin bread, so Iíve gotta give this a 10 for the sentimentality alone. Big spice aroma with a ton of cinnamon showing up over the rest of the spices. Good presence of pumpkin here too. Could be a little toastiness as well which is a nice addition. Flavor is full of sweet pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Again,the cinnamon really shows here, and itís a very welcome flavor. Have to ding the finish just a bit, as the beer kind of thins out and doesnít linger nearly as long as Iíd expect it to. Overall this is unmistakably a pumpkin and spice forward beer, which is something I definitely look for within this often highly-variable style. Never thought Iíd type this but, well done, Point.

Pour form a 12oz bottle. Deep orange/brown slightly cloudy brew with small tan head. Great aroma of earth, pumpkin and mild spices. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, an ineffable pumpkin quality and mild spices. Ends with a beautifully balanced bitterness that slakes the sweet pumpkin pie flavor and leaves the palate clean, save for a bit of ethanol. A remarkably good pumpkin brew!

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2012 Slightly hazy brownish orangish red looks like a true pumpkin.Nice spice aroma,refined and mellow pretty balanced pumpkin spice,nothing perfumey.Nutmeg vanilla caramel,malt,light cinnimon married very nicely for a very nice aroma-smells delicious.
Taste has a nice creamyness to it with malt carmel ,a mild toffee and a touch of roasted malt,a matched spiced pumpkin taste like aroma,toastyness,drinkability is really good not in a quaffible quenching way but just nothing offputting,this has been one of the better ones and definatly a pumpkin beer to have if you want a good one./The cinnamon and nutmeg do so more but nothing overpowering,very well spiced with a nice conditioned flavor.

Pours dark orange umber with a small light beige head. Smells of pumpkin, spices, and hints of crust sweetness. Taste is exactly like a pumpkin pie in beer form. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and lightly fizzy mouth-carbonation, Point Whole Hog Pumpkin Ale finishes sweet and pumpkin pie-like.
