COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This beer comes out kicking. Thick off white head stays a while on top of the beautiful red/amber pour. Grapefuit is the dominant aroma here, although there is a hint of floral as well. Roasted malts add a bitter chocolate base, which is offset by a very bitter hoppy finish. I get a hint of grapefruit in the finish as well.

Bottle obtained from Trader Joeís in Phoenix. Deep copper with a small white head. crisp citrus hoppy aroma, there is also a little bit of caramel? This is great, lots of bitterness up front, creamy body with lots of malt to back it up. Finish is bitter but doesnít last quite as long as Rogue Santa. Iím looking forward to trying the Double Bastard that I have stowed away somewhere.

Pours a nice reddish brown with good head. Malty, roasted taste with moderate hops.

My dad brought me a variety of beers when he went to california. I had previously read reviews on Arrogant Bastard and had saw pictures of the bottle but being from South Dakota I didnít think I had much of a chance of getting to try this. Extremely dark amber red with a creamy head that doesnít fade away. It had a distinctive hoppy malty smell. It had a powerful roasty taste and an aftertaste that lasts for quite some time. I was totally impressed by this beer. It is the first Strong American Ale I had ever tried. I hope someday I will have the opportunity to try the double bastard.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Dark brown color, medium tan head. Slightly sour aroma. Dark malts and hops flavor collide and make it slightly sharp and astringent. Bitter finish. Decent enough, but I was expecting more.

a beer that commands your attention, very dark red/amber color, hoppy and bitter, but also very smooth, great beer

Over-hyped media blitz. Good job Stone! One minute it barely existed in a few bars, and then the next minute it was on the shelf in every 7-11. Nice logo, great artwork and attitude, fancy silkscreened bottles. Only available in 22s, from what Iíve seen. In the end the beer itself is another west-coast Cascade dry-hopped pale ale, with a little more character than Sierra Nevada. Itís definitely very tasty, just more hype and image than anything else. You could say that Iím arrogant and snobby about Arrogant Bastard. Stone is a good brewery though, Iíd recommend Stoneís Ruination IPA over this one, however.

It pours with a dense head, leaving good lacework, has a deep mahogny color, with hop and nutty barley-malt aroma, follows through a little malt accented, with a robust balance of hop bitterness in the palate with an agrissive bitter hops finish.

Biting, strong flavor that is terrific for the palate and pleasing to the nose. Hits you quick and hard with the aroma, and appearance is fantastic.
