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 local grocery store just started carrying this, which is kinda amazing since our college town tends to focus more on selling cases of Busch or Keystone or whatever cheap crap is popular at the moment...Hopefully this is one bastard that will stick around for awhile. First things first, this is a Big Beer: Big Taste, Big Aroma, Big Hops, Big Deep Blood-Red Color. The scent hits you the moment you crack the bottle open- fruity, hoppy, INSANELY strong. Pours with a nice brown-tan head that quickly diminishes into a little top-fizz. Tastes about how it smells, monstrously hoppy with a strong bite and aftertaste that keeps going for ages. To be honest, I'm worthy enough to like this for the great, ultra-strong beer that it is, but I'm not worthy enough to fully appreciate everything that there is about this beer. Still though, a great beer, and well worth the $3.38 pricetag.

I keep wanting to dislike this beer. I want to take them up on their arrogance. But it's sooooo good, dammit! Big head, almost opaque (muddy) amber. Lots of hoppiness, bitter on the finish. Truly a nice ale. Even if I want to hate it.

When I first apporached this ale I was skeptical because of the name and not being familiar with Stone Brewing but thanks to Arrogant Bastard I have become and will continue to becom very familiar with there brews.

just bought the bottled arrogant bastard, seems different than it was on tap..not a bad thing. It pours smoothly with a nice caramel head. Has a sweet aroma which draws you in. Slightly bitter at first but finishes with smooth malty and very slightly hoppy. Good Buy.

Very malty and strong beer. Interesting upfront, but difficult to have much of this brew. A good example of extreme beer. Id prefer a bit of balance.

Popped the top..."low and behold"..the roasted smell lingered from the bottle with seriousness. Poured it in to a cold glass and and its dark brownish-red color was tantalizing and complex when tasted. This beer is brewed right ! Strong "Roasted Hops" flavor with enough power to back it up..As it states on the bottle "YOU’RE NOT WORTHY"...words speak for its self’..and so does this beer...

Smells grapefruit, pine...tastes the same. Very good ! It has a long lasting grapefruit aftertaste. The bottle is wrong, I do like it!

One of my favourite beers. Dark brown pour, perfect proportion of sweetness with a great long finish. Good for a winter day and even refreshing with bbq on a hot summer day.

Aroma is malty with a perfect head. Taste is somewhat toasty with dark crystal flavors, over all I would say this is a perfect beer. Balanced!

Deep dark red with a head that could sit for hours. Resiny and piney hop goodness, mixed quite well with caramel bready malt...beautiful beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
