COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

The white grapefruit flavor was overwhelming and honestly I couldnt taste anything else except for hoppy bitterness. The bottle claims sophistication but I sensed no such subtlety. I havent seen (tasted) an ale more undeserving of the 99th percentile.

Smells of citrus and hops. pours a dark amber color (slightly brownish) with a small tan head. Taste of fruit, but changes to a citrus flavor that leaves a bitter aftertaste. Multiple flavors. The palate isn’t to thick. Overall a good buy, but not my favorite.

22 oz rocket. Pours a opaque, hazy, copper. Medium light tan head w/medium lacing. Nice & fragrant aroma with citrus, fresh pine present. Slightly yeasty & malty. Mouthfeel is nice and smooth with a crisp, bitter finish. A great beer. Though its 7.2% abv, no alcohol aroma. Very drinkable.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 1/3 served in teku, Brewdog Notts. Taste of every dark thing that exists, coffee, carmel, whisky, cherry and so much more. perfectly balanced. Slight taste of alcohol, great appearance and great aroma. Really nice one!

Great stuff. Bitter and balanced. Lovely lacy head with a great reddish-brown color. A classic. Love it!

Pours dark with a thin tight head. Thick, opaque copper color, with an aroma that draws us back to a private reserve we sampled last week. Smooth, although very hoppy. I believe that this is one of the better beers we’ve sampled in the past few months. $4 for a 22 oz. bottle. I must admit, after trying a bit of this, part of me doesn’t want to finish the Tequiza that I started to pregame on.

Not bad. Is really hard to describe. It's been a long time since I had one of these. It smell kinda floral and has dark reddish color. Like thte label says 'aggresive'.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2004 I liked a lot this beer the first few times I had it. Then I realized what it tastes like. Soy sauce. Drinking this beer is like drinking a bottle of soy sauce. Absolutely disgusting. Since that revelation I can't touch the stuff. Neither can anyone else who I have mentioned the word 'soy sauce' to while they were drinking it. I'm all in favor of big malt, big hops, etc. But I'll be getting that elsewhere now. If I ever buy another bottle of Arrogant Bastard it will go into a a stir fry.

Pours a nice brown color with aromas of caramel and toffee, which also form the majority of the flavor. Make no mistake, it's quite bitter, but comes off fairly well.
