Harpoon UFO Pumpkin Ale

Up next in my week of pumpkins was the Harpoon UFO Pumpkin Ale. UFO stands for Unfiltered Offering if you're curious.
Sharp spiciness on this one. Clove, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg all appear in the nose. Jo thought it smelled like pumpkin bread as it had a certain baked bread quality to it. Taste followed with just a ton of spices and very little beer flavor. Just crazy. Definitely the spiciest pumpkin I've had so far. Cinnamon is the major flavor and I got some nutmeg and allspice along with it. I'll say that while it was too much cinnamon and spice for me, it will definitely appeal to people looking for pie in a glass. So pick it up if you like that style pumpkin ale.
