Had on-tap at the Portsmouth Brewery. A pumpkin IPA? How intriguing! It’s a rustic deep copper showcasing a cloudy off-tan head, two girls’ fingers in length. Reminds me particularly of an unsweet, spiced iced tea with an sidelined alcohol kick.

Can at World Of Beer. Pours a clear orange color with a medium frothy white head that burns away steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of citrus and spice. The finish is hoppy with a short bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

Can. Grapefruit and herbal hops and vegetal malt aroma. Amber with a small ivory head, moderate lacing. Vegetal malt, grapeftuit peel, and metallic herbal hops flavor. Medium body and carbonation. I found the hops a little on the harsh side, but to be fair, I just had a Surly Wet yesterday.

16 oz can into a tulip glass. Best Before December 30, 2012.
A - Pours a clear light brown body with a fluffy two finger white head. Very dense and thick with great lacing ad retention.
S - Piney and resinous hops, light spice, caramel malts.
T - Piney and oily hops lead into smooth caramel malt. Light spice presence with a slight mineral finish and lasting bitterness. Pumpkins? Nope. Mouth feel is slickand medium bodied.
O - A confusing but tasty beer. Somewhere in between a wet hopped ale and a spiced autumn beer, this one oddly works.

Draft at madmen state college. Pours orange with a thn white head that leaves some lacing. Nice floral and citrus notes on the nose. Vibrant and fresh hop flavor on the tongue but there some malt there as well to balance. Very drinkable. This one’s growing on me.

Golden pour. Wasn't expecting this. Very sticky and thick head. No aroma that I can pick up. Earthy yet slightly fruity taste. Bland. Not a big fan of this

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.

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.
