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”

Amber in color with a thick creamy beige head. Aroma is of pine, resin, light must, leaves, light squash. Taste is of herbal hops, resin, with pumpkin, dirt and pine in the finish.

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.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2012
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.

queenholly (2612) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2012
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.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2012
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.

trapped (603) - TURKEY - OCT 28, 2012
Can at New York. Rich amber colour with spongy off-white head, good retention. Strong hops aroma, slightly bitter hops taste, soft carbonation, bitter finish. A nice and balanced beer.

16 oz can with an autumn color(copper) large white head. Pumpkin, with large hop taste. Great especially out of a can.

kaser (2100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2012
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dchmela (2559) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2012
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.
