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 “wet hops”

Tap at The Woods: Golden pour with a white film of head. Hoppy aroma- hempy and citrusy. Woody C-hops. Light body with a predominately hoppy flavor. Vegetal, mildly herbal. Similar Sierra Pale Ale.

Can. Pours a clear orange with a thin white to beige head. Big sticky hops, soft malt. Medium bodied, soft and malty, spicy. Toast, long bitterness. A touch empty, warm biscuits into the finish. Decent, and honestly better than I was expecting.

Good aroma, but overly hoppy. Nice color, bitter finish, not one of my favorite pumpkins

closey22 (782) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Amber w/ thin white head; very floral hoppy aroma; flava is of tea, hay, hops; feels medium and foamy; finishes coppery dry; not much of a ’autumn-style’ beer, but delish nonetheless.

Was not expecting something so hoppy, thought the pumpkin would soften things up. Not so, I would say the pumpkin is undetectable on the nose and taste. Otherwise it’s a great burst of grapefruit. The palate is a bit watery up front but with a solid moderate bitter finish

McGarnigle (544) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2012
I don’t taste much pumpkin, which is a good thing. I’m not much into pumpkin beers and don’t think they’d hop up well. So this is mostly a slightly sweet IPA, with grapefruit rind hop flavor and maybe a hint of spice. Long hop afterglow.

Nephilium (1309) - Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2012
This isn’t your regular pumpkin beer, this is an IPA with a hint of pumpkin. You can tell from the aroma, that this is a big hop bomb... if you strain, you may detect a touch of pumpkin and spice. Pours a clear amber, with a thin white head. There’s a big hop presence here, with the pumpkin a side note in the finish. If you don’t like the standard pumpkin beers, and like IPA’s, I’d recommend this one.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Can shared by a friend. Pours a clear orange/amber color with a medium tan head. Malty nose with spicy and grassy hop notes. Malty and vegetal flavor with earthy and spicy hops through to the finish.

2.9
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 10/20
MIBRomeo (2537) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2012
My first thought was this has a lager like grain quality in the aroma, poured an off orange to brown w/ some light cloudyness and a nice off white head w/ thick sticky lacing. The follow up aroma was an almost bitter musty piney aroma a light sweet quality that made me think earthy, I guess it could be the pumpkin, but w/ out the knowledge of it I wouldn’t have said that. Palate is highly carbonated of average body with a lingering stickiness. The flavor is a bit disappointing and not quite right. The long lingering piney bitterness is slightly unpleasant in the aftertaste not much more than that wet musty piney hop flavor dominating something that I really can’t say much about. I wouldn’t drink this again.

Aroma is pine/citrus, spices and yeast. The flavor is citrus, tropical fruit, grapefruit, mild hop resin, fruit and a lingering spices in the finish.
