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”

Light bronze color with a tallish, tight, tan head. Thick lace. Light caramel aromas. Hints of herbal hops, pumpkin and mild spice. Quite dry, at least much more so than the aroma would suggest. Nutty, with a touch of squash, spice and floral undertone. An amber with a couple little twists, that make it slight more interesting. Actually may have poured this one too cold seems to picking up a little as it warms. 11/12

16 oz can from notes. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, lightly toasted, mild pumpkin, citrus and mild pine hops, dry, decent, but no reason to revisit this.

Leighton (22820) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Can at JFK a few years back, picked up from New Beer Distributors. Pours clear copper with a fine, white head. Herbal and piney hops dominate, with lightly sweet, toasty and bready malts, faint tangy citrus fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with bitter earth and leaves, some crackers, toasted malts. Not pleasurable. Perhaps not in optimal condition.

TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Reviewed from notes: Pours a nice clear amber color with light white head. Flowery, piney, and citrusy on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, yet full. Finishes with some nice hop resin.

Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Consumed October 28, 2012. Best by December 2012 on the bottom of the can. Into a pint glass. The appearance was a light brown close to tan colored body that gave a beautiful foamy one finger white head and had some nice spotty yet foamy lacing. The body was too hazy for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell had some spicy hops up front coming in very strong. There was no pumpkin whatsoever. The taste was extremely hoppy, yet good, some nice citric fruits came out. The palate was a medium with some slight sharpness here and there on the tongue. There was a likable dry aftertaste. It was mildly sessionable Overall, this was a good American Pale Ale.

No spice in clear amber brew. Autumn hops were flavorful. Nice head on average body brew.
