Pours a burnt orange, or orange-copper color with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is overwhelming pumpkin and spice. Pumpkin hits, slight bitterness then spices ride into a slight alcohol presence. A very well built pumpkin, balance and nothing overwhelming in the taste.

6% 750ML Bottle 3 finger soapy head red to light orange away carbination,
Pumpkin(gourd)smell shows up a bit when it warms up a bit but its a little stinky otherwise no pumpkin smell when colder and just light and spicy. Taste a puree styled orange peel taste with the spices listed in this beer tasted together clove and nutmeg more then cinnomin and it scratches the throat a little. Refreashing ale that has some spice taste and some water but its mostly a puree orange peel taste so more a spiced orange peel ale then pumpkin I think but it is a pumpkin beer so I had worse and better pumpkin beers cheers

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from portage MI megabev. Pour is dark orange/brown and thick and hazy. Head is offwhite, tall at first and quickly settled to a thin layer. Aromas of pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and malty beer - basically pumpkin pie scent and a strong beer scent mixed. Taste is honestly exactly the nose, with the addition of some sour bitter hops maybe? Only very faint. Is has pretty low carbonation and is a bit watery but nothing to complain about. Finish has all of the spices listed above, with a bit of tingle and leaves the mouth slightly dry. Good rogue beer.

Big orange bottle from the LCBO. Pours brownish orange, hazy, with a half-inch head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of pumpkin, slight spice, with some metallic notes. Taste is very smooth - pretty standard "pumpkin ale" taste, with spices appearing at the end. Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy. A good pumpkin ale.

Bottle, LCBO. Late, but appreciated finding this one in Waterloo! Dark orange/brown with small bubbly head. Really nice pumpkin aroma - not all the spices, just pumpkin - solid. Great bottle too it should be mentioned. Taste - nicely balanced pumpkin over a lively medium body with some nice bitterness in the end from either hops or the roasted pumpkin or soemthing. Really easy to drink. A pumpkin with substance but not overwhelming, this may be my favorite one yet. Nicely done Rogue.

Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber - painted orange. Dark orangeish copper pour, murky with a slight bubbly white head. Spicy aroma with some pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Flavor is full-bodied and delicious. Find some nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, and a bit of ripening vegetables. Very well done. Crisp, even mouthfeel. Enjoyed this one - but ready to put the pumpkin ales away for this year.

750 ml orange-painted bottle. Pours hazy red with a medium beige head with decent retention that leaves a little lace. Aroma is full of pumpkin pie scents, with definite real pumpkin. Taste is sweet and savory, full of spices. Body is thinner than I was hoping. Awesome pumpkin beer, although there are better ones out there.
