The tangelo hef I have in my primary in my bathtub of my spare bathroom. My entire bathroom smells like HEAVEN! I can't wait to give that bad boy a try!
Back the the pumpkin - I used whole leave hops, no pellets. It really was not overpowering at all! I love me a good IPA, probably my favorite style, especially, the extra hoppy dry versions we have here in the Northwest, but that was not what I was going for on any level.
They are balanced out by all of the spices, the pumpkin, and the vanilla, and to be honest, there is no bitterness at all.
As I have posted, I am giving a little more time in the secondary (probably 10 more days or so, just to mellow out as one big batch) and then will rack to my bottling bucket, where I will taste again to see where the vanilla stands. I did not want an overwhelming PUMPKIN taste, and I think I have achieved just that with this beer.
Plan on addining maybe 2 oz of extract to the priming solution, if I want more of that full "pumpkin pie with whipped cream" flavor - I will update.
