Elysian Brewing – The Great Pumpkin Imperial Ale (2012)

28 Aug

NicAA: A muddy amber with small head that disappears fast, W visibly low carb. Cinnamon + ginger in front of pumpkin, malt + molasses. 8/10

NicTM: V. low carbonation, med body. Strong cinnamon and nutmeg, a little ginger and maybe mace? Spices swirl around the pumpkin nicely 8/10

NicP: Good. There is a medium to high amount of pumpkin here and it’s spice buddies are making it shine. 6 pumpkins

NicO: This is the classic imperial pumpkin. A perfectly crafted imperial with balanced spices and wonderful pumpkin flavor. A must. 90/100

AlexAA: a starkly vivid orange w/ no head and a light cloudiness, a metallic smell of pumpkin and cloves 8/10

AlexTM: a meaty pumpkin taste lightly spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon, very slight hoppy bitterness balanced the melty brown sugar 8/10

AlexP: some of the freshest pumpkin to date in an ale, light toastiness and chunky depth 6/10

AlexO: spiced lighter than other Imperials, very crisp finish + the hops add the finishing touch to this choice ale. Pretty lovely! 87/100
