What's ther to say about this beer that hasn't already been said about Obama. It's empty promises and positive reviews don't give justice for the pure evil and harshness that is this beer. Imaging fermented raisens mixed with vodka. That's what this beer tastes like. The bitterness isn't bracing like a GOOD Ipa. Instead it cuts your taste buds open only to allow the horrible taste to hit you full swing. (like pouring lemon juice into an open wound).
I'm very thankful I bought one bottle of this for a little over $2. I was only able to stomach half before pouring the devil necter down the drain. As I watched it fall into the depths of hell, I noticed the dark color and thick consistency not unsimilar to that of a cough syrup. Truly symbolic for the evil that this over rated beer brings.

Pours a crystal clear amber colour with a very slightly off-white head. Disappears quickly, leaves some lacing.
Smells of sticky, fruity malts, and hops - but not as strong as expected.
Taste is wrong. Reminds me of rubbing alcohol - pungent alcohol, phenolic solvents. Almost belgian levels of malt-fruitiness. Melted plastic. Hot on the back of the throat - fuesels. A drain pour; yech!
Other than the foul taste, the body was decent, but the nasty flavours killed any drinkability.
This is a well-regarded beer, so I can only assume I got a bad bottle.

Pretty disappointed with this one. Not sure why its rated so high on this website. Not only is it "not special"at all but its kinda a lame beer. Very rarely do I completely dislike a beer but this beer was simply dislikable. Perhaps my expectations were too high but this did not taste like a premium beer.

I purchased this beer at Grape and Grain Wines and Spirits in Memphis, TN. The label was interesting, with a rough paper surface and a design and theme somewhere between "handcrafted" and "homemade" with intentionally misaligned letters and simple graphics. The beer itself, however, proved to be rather underwhelming.
A: Golden in color with moderate clarity and some head. Pretty typical for a pale ale.
S: Immediately I noticed that this beer smelled fruity. Very, very fruity, sort of like an inexpensive red wine. The aroma was bright and carried for a considerable distance. The smell was one-dimensional, with no subtlety or additional smell besides fruit and a bit of hops.
T: The initial taste has an overwhelming flavor of grapefruit that buries most of the other flavors in the beer. A bright, spritzy bitter flavor struggles to rise above the cloying grapefruit-juice taste but doesn't become prominent until the first grapefruit tidal wave recedes somewhat, and is accompanied by a warming alcohol flavor that becomes stronger in the finish--at 9% ABV this is a beer of considerable potency.
M: Average. Not too thin, not too thick, not noteworthy enough to draw your attention away from the bizarre grapefruit taste.
D: Difficult. The extreme ester/fruit flavor is loud, sweet, and in-your-face, making drinking it something of a slog. I would not recommend this beer to anyone who is not a big fan of fruity-tasting ales.
Overall, this is a very coarse and very one-dimensional beer with almost no subtlety at all. It takes one aspect of an ale and cranks it up to ridiculous levels at the expense of everything else. If this is a typical example of Dogfish Head's product I honestly cannot understand all the praise they get. It's like a comic book--big loud bright colors and lots of superficial flash, but no subtlety or balance.
