COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first-ever seasonal can release arrives today, and it is brewed as a true celebration of this special moment in time. We made a trip out to Yakima Valley to the oldest continually operating hop farms in the country, and met with Patrick Smith, a 3rd generation hop grower. We selected and harvested 800 pounds of fresh ďwet hopsĒ

Pours an orange brown with a thick off white head. The aroma is a combination of roasted pumpkin and big juicy citrus hops. Nice malt body with more roast notes and lots of citrus hops. Good stuff.

travita (3857) - Frisco, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2012
16 oz can. The look is clear, big foamy beige colored head. The smell is hops, slight nutmeg, grass, pumpkin, cinnamon, and a touch of sweetness. The taste is decent bitterness, grass, hops, pumpkin, spice, and ok. Not quite as impact full as I thought it might be.

ben4321 (3812) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Location: Draft at The Growler, 10/26/12

Aroma: It has a clean malt nose, with some toast/cookie, spice, and fresh hops
Appearance: This one pours a caramel-orange color with a white head and sticky lace
Flavor: The taste is balanced between sweetness of the malts, the spice, and the hop bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a soft carbonation, and a fairly dry finish on the mouth
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty nice beer. I enjoyed it. They did a nice here, the malty components and the wet hops worked well together.

16oz can from Lizardville RR, IBU 78?!?? from a pumpkin beer, well I was wrong this is a wet hopped beer with some spices added and in my opinion it doesnt meld quite well.. as it warms it gets better, initially youíre drinking an IPA with some off spice in the finish, then as it warms your drinking a thin bodied pumpkin beer dominated by hops... good not great.

christian_no (2) - - OCT 22, 2012 does not count
Nice aroma beautiful filtered reddish colour but the taste doesnít go the distance. Itís missing a little bit of body. You do get anice toasty taste and quite a bit of bitterness yet itís missing in all aroundness. Still a nice beer on a hot autumn day.

AirForceHops (2986) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 21, 2012
16 oz. can. From a four pack. Nice looking orange pour with ample carbonation, producing large frothy head. Nose is fresh hops with spicy caramel malt. Smells really nice. Citrus wet hops are the main player with a weak pumpkin/ all spice. And in all honesty; the spice is a wisp. This is the most hoppy seasonal with pumpkin in mind that Iíve ever had. Donít drink this thinking youíre going to get a lot of pumpkin, because the hop is forward and dominate.

Canned, orange amber in color with a strong hoppy presence, some pumpkin or vegetable but mostly good IPA profile

bluejacket74 (1282) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2012
16 ounce can, bottom of the can says best before December 30, 2012. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours an orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is mostly citrusy (tropical fruit, grapefruit, oranges) and piney hops, along with a little bit of pumpkin and some pumpkin spices. Taste is similar to the aroma, itís a mostly hoppy bitter tasting brew, but itís also a bit salty too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís slick and creamy with good carbonation. I think itís a good overall brew. I might age a can of this for a while and see if it ends up more pumpkiny or not, but I think itís still a tasty brew now. At this point Iíd call it more of an IPA than it is a Pumpkin Ale. $8.99 a 4-pack.
