New Belgium introduces Atomic Pumpkin Ale

New Belgium Brewing  has a new pumpkin ale seasonal that’s generating a bit of heat. Atomic Pumpkin Ale is the latest Voodoo Ranger Special Release brewed with Saigon cinnamon and Habanero peppers,

More from a press release:

Atomic Pumpkin Ale starts out sweet and finishes spicy with a little bitterness in between. The medium body ale pours bright pale amber with a light white lacing, and features Nugget hops combined with Pale Mena, Pale Rahr, Caramel and Munich malts to create a spicy and warming mouthfeel.

“Atomic Pumpkin is a twist on pumpkin ale for beer drinkers who like some heat,” said Bryan Simpson, public relations director for New Belgium. “Classic fall flavors like pumpkin pie and cinnamon offer a sweet counterpart to the fiery peppers, making it a great, full-flavored beer for the crisp autumn weather.”
