The 2014 version of Tree Brewing’s Jumpin’ Jack is a little different than in years’ past. This year the beer is brewed with an IPA base giving the India Pumpkin Ale moniker. This beer is new for 2014 and is sure to dazzle the taste buds of BC Pumpkin Ale Fanatics. The Jumpin’ Jack pours into the glass as a copper-amber colour with a finger and a half of lacing head. This seasonal brew smells of a sweet pumpkin spice using nutmeg, allspice and of course Pumpkin flavours in a semi-sweet package. In addition to the spiced pumpkin notes comes a light hopped bitterness that adds further depth to the otherwise rather sweet portfolio. The flavour is light on the tongue and a hop bitterness comes in right away but so does the spicey, pumpkin flavours. Where typically there is a sweetness right off the bat a hop flavour cuts that early on leaving a delicate balance of hops, spice and autumnal pumpkin. This beer is a balance of caramelized pumpkin, autumnal spice and BC IPA hops – a great balance of seasonal and BC inspired flavours.
