FROG’S HOLLOW DOUBLE PUMPKIN ALE

Frog’s Hollow has an absolutely intoxicating aroma. It’s nothing but ginger, cloves, allspice. Probably one of the best smelling beers I’ve come across. It pour a clear orange, with a thin layer of bubbly foam. The flavor strongly matches the scent, but for a double pumpkin ale, not a ton of pumpkin flavor, though it does maintain a nice balance between sweet and spiciness.

A medium body, sharp and clean with a slight bite of alcohol in the finish. Granted it is 8.4%. This beer has a lot of good qualities, but in the end, doesnt produce anything earth-shattering. It is slightly watery for an Imperial Ale. But it does such a good job at keeping you warm and buzzy, I’ll say it’s alright.
