2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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'.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.
