Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: RblWthACoz on 03-18-2008

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Brewed in tribute to the inspiration that has been Senator Barack Obama's presidential campaign. In keeping with the Illinois senator's unifying theme, the "Hop Obama" is an indefinable ale that doesn't adhere to traditional style guidelines. The 5.2% ABV creation contains five different kinds of European crystal malt and three different kinds of Pacific Northwest Hops. Combined with a Scottish yeast strain for fermentation.

First off a note about the style. This is per Jeff at Sixpoint:

"...as far as style it is no style per se. it's def not an ipa or a pale ale. we deliberately brewed it so it had no style guidelines. Maybe list it as a bitter/session ale."

So what to do? There really isn't anything that fits with what has been stated here. Due to that, I am going to put it under pale ale and leave this explanation.

Pours a clouded orange with a nice creme head. Floral hoppy nose. Strong citric hops flavor profile. Very firm bitter tone. Feel is good. This is very drinkable, even though it's so distinct and firm. Hop heads rejoice! Even in these times of hop-uncertainty, Sixpoint clearly delivers one for those who have the appreciation for it.
