2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bready, veggie, spice aroma. Orange/copper amber with a thick foamy off white head that lasts quite a while. Smooth at first with some veggie and earthy flavors. Kind of yeasty. Medium bodied. A blunt slightly bitter finish. It's not bad but nothing to write home about.

Pours a clear copper color with ivory head. Pumpkin pie spicing and pumpkin on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little burnt toast note. I like that it’s not overly sweet.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Stapleton Tap House last November. Pours copper with small head and lace. Aroma of light spice. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of medium malts with light nutmeg, cardamon and amber malts. Overall very full bodied but a touch more of bitter spice or nutmeg than some pumpkin beers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz can. Pours clear ruby amber with a smallish creamy off-white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is nice sweet pumpkin pie spices - nutmeg, all spice and a little ginger and cinnamon.
The flavor is sweet bready caramel malts, molasses and pumpkin pie. This sample seems a little oxidized unlike other samples I’ve had this year. The finish has some bitterness to balance out the sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a nice well balanced pumpkin ale with nice spicing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sugary pumpkin spice / pie and caramel malt aroma. Slick, oily, medium-full body, sweet, under-attenuated, spice and sugar-driven pumpkin strong ale. Chewy, waxy, sloppy malt that I find in Upslope stuff across the board, plus noticeable alcohol for that added punch. Grain of salt rating, I don’t like adulterated beer.
