Let us get into this pumpkin IPA.

Closing, I am getting really burn out on pumpkin beers. It is not as excited as it was before. I really did not like beer at all and normally I like just about everything that this brewery puts out on the market. I was very disappointed. It might have been something that I ate or drink before. I will not know until next season. I recommend you to try this beer once. Please, let me know that you think. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
