Wachusett Brewing Co. – Imperial Pumpkin (2013)

AlexAA: tawny orange, slight cloudiness, very sweet aroma but chock full of wafting pumpkin, too 8/10

AlexTM: AlexTM: The dessert quality of the sugar and vanilla goes hand in hand w/ a barley depth and strong ginger smack. 8/10

AlexP: The sheer volume of pumpkin here, paired with the heavy-handed sugary pour makes it pop it’s pumpkin top a bit. 7P

AlexO: Weathered barley, smacking sugar cane, edge? The Cyndi Lauper of Imperials, sweet, but been around the block. 84/100

NicAA: Clear bright orange w. lingering half-finger head. Aroma of candi sugars, very light spice and vanilla. 9/10

NicTM: Warming, heavy, low carb. Pumpkin and delicate spice into a rush of sweet candi sugars, to a slightly boozy finish 9/10

NicP: Tasty smooth pumpkin puree, and a good amount of it too. The candi sugars compliment it nicely. 6p

NicO: A gem last year, still gleams. Hearty pumpkin ale that doesn’t rely on heavy spice but lets the pumpkin shine. 88/100
