i've been monitoring my carboy and its bubbling like crazy, however i do not pickup any pumkin aromas from it, only the co2 like normal pale ales and IPAs just less hoppy, is that normal? should i be picking up aromas of pumkin spice during fermentation?

I didn't like the McCormick spices, used my own blend from a pie recipie. I did not get any spices until the beer carbed up, then everything comes together nicely.
