Bottle. Appearance was a dark amber color, with average head that was off white. Lacing was medium. Aroma is very prominent!! Smells of heavy malt, caramel, and a bit of CO2. Flavor is unique, nicely balanced malt and hop character. The finish had a roasted bite to it with lingering hop flavor. I really liked this one, itís very unique.

the ale stands up to its name, Iíve had this many times but Iíve been waiting to have it on tap before i rated it.. didnt happen i grew impatient. to the beer! hoppy sweet aroma, tanish white head dark ruby red body, i dont like sweet beers usually but this one is special, has a kick to it, hoppy malty bitter sweat taste, hints of citrus and chocolate. great beer. most beers taste good with some food but this one stands alone like the arrogant bastard it is.

I loved this one, its got a ball tearer of a flavour, wicked punch after a couple and very drinkable, overall a dangerous one if you get too many at once, easy to keep drinking!!

This is fantastic stuff. I remember the first time I had it. I was 20. I poured it into a glass and thought to myself "something is wrong with this beer, the head is discolored". Now that Iím slightly older and less wiser Iíve come to appreciate a great beer when Iíve had one. Hops, man. Stone loves them hops, and so do I.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
dark reddish brown, complex flavors. Drinkable, but I didnít love it. Bitter finish. Not to alchohol-tasting. I mainly ordered it because I donít think Iíve ever had it before- it was okay, in a situation where the choices were arrogant bastard or budweiser I would choose the arrogant bastard, but otherwise I would opt for something else.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
First thing that hits you is the strong hop aroma, along with a very toasty carmel malt flavor. A very dark red color. Medium carbonation. Flavor is very bitter, but tends to leave you with a good aftertaste. Strong but goes down somewhat smooth. This is one of the best beers to date. Not one for drinking in large quanities, one to enjoyed slowely at the end of a long day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber brown body with a beige, full head. No bubbling coming off the bottom of glass after about 30 seconds. Smell is of hops, but not overpoweringly so; really a subdued surprise here. Taste is a combination of both floral and fruity hops. Most pronounced are the apricot and pineapple flavors that are also found in the regular stone IPA. The major differences of this beer are a darker color and a bigger bitter, more varied taste. There are indeed ďaggressiveĒ hops added to the mix that give a really nice bite. The aftertaste is more bitter hops and fruity sweetness; both well disguise any alcohol that may have been lurking. So thatís the Arrogant Bastard, not as daunting as I had imagined it would be, though certainly a worthwhile beverage with a confounding compilation of hops.
