2015: Brown color, light carbonation. Smells of fresh baked pumpkin pie. The spices take the forefront of this beer. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. The pumpkin is not hidden or a background note like in many inferior pumpkin beers. This beer isn’t afraid to be pumpkin pie in a glass. So, if you like pumpkin pie: there ya go. If not: Don’t even bother with this beer. I love pumpkin pie. :)

Part of a sampler at Jet Rock at PHL terminal B. Clear golden orange with no head. Spice and whisky aromas dominate. Moderate alcohol burn. Taste is like a shot of whisky and not much else. Tasted barrel aged - but the barkeep confirmed that this was the regular blend.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a minimal, poorly retained ivory head over an effervescent, light amber (SRM 7) body.....nose is heavy with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, mild bread, pie crust, no esters or hops......taste is mildly sweet, with heavy spices including ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla notes, moderate toasted malts with bread and crust notes, mild squash notes finishing with a light herbal hop bitterness......mouth feel, body light of medium, moderate alcohol, light lingering squash astringency. This beer is spice and squash dominated with little from the hops and a light contribution from the malts. It is almost cider like in many of its characteristics. The beer would be greatly improved with more roasted malts. BJCP 7/2/13/4/6

12 oz bottle. Pours orange with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of alcohol, pumpkin, spices and popcorn. Body is medium and crisp. Pumpkin, spices, bready malt, popcorn and herbal hops fill the mouth. Finish is long and very dry. Quite unique, not in a good way.

Poured from bomber into a tulip clear copper color with little to no head. Strong aroma of lovely pie spice and vanilla. Tastes almost like a pumpkin pie with very small taste of the crust. From a pumpkin beer standpoint this sets the bar for all other bees of this style.

Pours a nice reddish orange color. Nose is pumpkin pie spice, stronger on the palate. At or near the top of the class for pumpkin beers.

Crystal clear copper color, light head that dissipates entirely rather swiftly. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice, crust, pumpkin. Taste follows suit, sweet malts present. Low bitterness. Really good for fall.
