This is an aggressive beer. You probably wonít like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Theyíre not kidding. It is truly an aggressive beer. Very nicely hopped, with still a fair representation of malt. A big beer for big beer drinkers, although I suspect half the reason I drink it is for the image....

You can taste a nice base of caramel, malt, and some spice. This is suddenly and deligtfully washed over by some fantastic citrus-like hops. This is a tastefully powerful beer that really is pretty damn arrogant and not for the faint of heart.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2005 On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Dark orange with tan head, looks beautiful. Powerfully sweet aroma, like cooked sugar and hops. Biting fruit, like grapefruit, piney, hoppey. Palate is fairly heavy. This beer owns me.

A friend got me a bottle ( I think she thinks Iím arrogant) , but wow this is a good beer. The hops really donít hit you until you swallow, but then they linger. Excellent beer.

I love this beer. A hometown favorite in San Diego and well deserved. Opening up a bottle releases an amazing aroma. The appearance is dark and rich and the flavor follows through with a well bodied bitter that stays in your mouth for a long time. Drink on an empty stomach, because this stuff is filling and youre going to want a lot of it.

Pours a dark amber with a tan head. Aroma is fruity, nevertheless you can still smell some malt and hops in the beer. The flavor has hops initially, which give way to malt flavors. Good beer.

Bottle. Ah, Arrogant Bastard, Iíve had you before but never rated you and now I get a whole bomber of you to myself! Woohoo! Pours a bubbly dark mahogany with a lovely large foamy off-white head -- it looks great! Aroma is a near-perfect blend of fresh citrus hops, roasted malt, caramel and spices -- man, thatís some good smelliní! Flavour follows the aroma but the hops are more upfront, way more upfront and I love it. I love the mouthfull of hops -- itís a hop-party in my mouth. Not as hoppy as some of their other beers but thereís a reason it has such a great reputation -- itís a damn fine beer and one of the best American ales youíll find.

Really very strong and rightfully named. Drink slowly and appreciate the caramel, tofee, and hops. The tastes mgiht hide the hops at times, but the hops will eventually reign supreme in your mouth. Iíll say it again, drink slowly.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2007 Pours dark brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma is caramel with toffee and citrus hops. Flavor is initiallly very hoppy, grapefruit. Lots of caramel and toffee malt follow, but never wipes the hops out. Nice sipping beer.

Bottle. Deep reddish brown. Mild tan head, somewhat slick, manages to stick around in thin form for duration. Overwhelming hops presence. Decent raisiny tongue feel & flavor. Bitter. Tastes like they tried to cram 5 beers into one. Arrogance is not a quality I hold in high esteem. This is an astonishingly overrated brew. I donít appreciate consumer items marketed in a manner that tries to insult me.
