Gourd-geous Brews--Pumpkineater Imperial Pumpkin Ale
P..I.P.A. is a very attractive beer. It's a cloudy copper orange colour topped with a frothy cream head. It has a boozy aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg. It's a malt forward offering that features a healthy pumpkin profile. There is some definite spice flavour, but a touch more might be nice. It tastes every bit of its 8% alcohol and builds to a solidly bitter finish.
There's a lot to like in this one--awesome potency, great large format bottle, and a robust flavour. A bit more spice to mask the high alcohol content is my only suggestion.
