"Background: Ipso Facto was founded by lawyers, thus the legal theme throughout all of their brews. (Example: Wit of Habeus Corpus; Dissolution Pale Ale; Ambulance Chaser IPA, etc.). The brand always features a judge of some sort in the center, with package versioning done by judge, color, and support icons. In the case (heh) of the Pumpkin Porter, we opted to use a play on the classic headless horseman, done in Ipso Facto style. The jack-o-lantern serves as our "hanging judge" and dispenses fine quality hops, grains, and justice."
