UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 Like many pumpkin beers with real pumpkin, not just pumpkin spice, it has a similar darkish pumpkin ale color, and a fizzy, swiftly disappearing head. Warm pumpkin pie smell domination by smooth cinnamon nose. The taste starts out more like a pumpkin pastry square. But then the chili pepper kicks in, and delivers a nice spicy kick. You usually find this kind of oddball ingredient mix in a brewpub. Hope it stays around for a few years.
Smells of cinnamon, pumpkin, spices and some herb. Flavors are decently balanced but man it's got a kick. If you don't like spicy food this isn't for you. The pumpkin flavor is not too overwhelming, has a bit of sweetness to it, then the fire comes. The burn lingers in your throat, definitely the Chili's, not the alcohol. Pretty unique.

12oz bottle. I hate pumpkin beers but I'll still try them. The peppers changed up the spices a bit, but did I say, I hate pumpkin beers. pinkzambia (2124) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 13, 2018
Tap: Semi-sweet pumpkin pie aroma. Sweet flavors of cinnamon and other spices with a spicy hot finish. I wouldn't want to drink a whole pint. csaso (2372) - Missouri, USA - DEC 21, 2017

Sample at Daily Growler UA during the "5th Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest" on 10/26/2017. Clear golden color with a medium thin white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lace. Aroma of chili pepper, malt and cinnamon. Medium body with flavors of hot pepper, cinnamon and malt. The finish is pumpkin spices and peppers. Decent overall. rader58 (942) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 9, 2017
12 oz bottle. Pours clear orange in color. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, pepper. Flavor of citrus, pumpkin, fruit juice sweetness. Finish has a hot pepper burn to the throat. Awesome addition to the finish. wlajwl (7352) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 6, 2017
Aroma is cinnamon, pumpkin and creeping spices/chilies. The flavor is big cinnamon, malts, citrus and a creeping and increasingly spicy/chilies finish. Chudwick (3533) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - NOV 28, 2017
I had two of these and just now getting around to rating it. decent heat, but the amount of heat you'd expect to buy at Kroger: nothing excessive. cinnamon and peppers work well together. strong. glad I bought the six-pack. RSRIZZO (2038) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2017
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a bright pale gold with medium carbonation and a small white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice with a faint sour note in the back. It has a lighter medium body with a crisp mouthfeel. Flavor is spicy, with nutmeg and cinnamon then finishing with with a chili pepper spicy bite. Aftertaste is almost clean giving a refreshing feel but then the spicy heat comes into the back. Overall it's an interesting and complex take on a pumpkin.
