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.

22oz. bomber: Nice tawny head with great staying power. Wow, the hops are all over the aroma. A little floral, too. Taste is kerpow hops with a balanced sweetness. Alcohol is evident (and appreciated). Nice, bitter aftertaste. Sweet malt is left on the tongue and lips. And I only thought that I had grown bored with IPA's... not anymore. Wow!

Pours dark amber with a filtered clairty and lasting head, like i like... Aromas of Amarillo hops Carmel, Munich and Bisciut malts. Taste is malty with balanced west coast style hop profile and bigish body. Overall a bigger style American Amber Ale with a little somthing special. I have had almost all of Stoneís beers and this one is the most consistant and soild offering by Stone brewing.

A bit too agressive for my insophisticated pallet. Great color and complexity but keep drinking as to avoid that finish.

Full-bodied with molasses flavors rounded out by hints of brown sugar. Always a nice treat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber with a thick tan head. Aroma lightly malty. Taste is malty sweet that turns to hoppy bitterness, malty caramel lightly hoppy finish.

Sometimes youíre just in the mood for a ballsy beer. You donít want delicate. You donít care about subtle shifts in flavor as it lingers on your tongue. Youíre not going to concentrate on ballerinaesque transitions from nose to palate to finish. But you still want damn good beer. And you want it to slap you around a bit (like that night...um...). Arrogant Bastard is the very best of this kind of brew--one of the sure classics--and easily one of the best values in beerhistory.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2013 Outstanding. Pours a rich red/amber, outstanding color. Head is carmel and healthy. Smell is strong of hops and a strong malt backbone. The complexity of the taste is almost overwhelming consisting of hoppy goodness backed perfectly by strong malt and few different fruits including grape and I do agree with pineapple. Complex yet balanced with a bitter but refreshing finish. Great beer and packs a pretty good punch. Have another? MANY!

Thanks for the putdowns on the bottle. I like the sarcasm and in-your-face "are you down with craft beer, or are you pussy?"--attitude. Take a sniff...Spruce resin, orange flowers, malty malt, WOW! This is like taking a hit from a 6 foot bong! Itís an aromatic orangatuan climbing up my nose, and playing my ole-factory like a jungle gym. The dryness outta shrink my head fast enough to make a headhunter cry with joy as he decorates his tent post with my shriveled, devil-puckered up mug. Astringent but not aseptic; this big beer has plenty of expression. In a Barry White voice this beer says to my taste buds, "Hello taste babies, Iím gonna make love to you." The taste babes are passing out all over my mouth. What a hit! Thereís a little smoky, and a lot of sweet malt. A citric rind-like burn on the top of my mouth. This brew is so warm, feels stronger then it says. Man itís taut in the mouth like a live wire with all those hops. Thereís enough malt to fill your mouth though. Donít be worried about being bored with this munster. The beautiful thick, velvety, steamed milk froth is clinging all over the glass like sex juices after intercourse. What happened in that mug? I suggest: Sip and chug your way through 2/3 of a bomber, then kick back and let it warm up. As it warms up you should find yourself contemplating all the naughty things you want to do to satisfy your lover. Sip the last third of this brew saying those things with your eyes. This is a McNasty beer that will have itís way with you, and you should share that feeling.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2006 Aptly named. This is an in-your-face ale that isnít for the faint of heart. Dark cranberry colored concoction with a bubbly, beige head. Aroma is malt, pine and hops with a hint of citrus. Nice dry, very bitter finish. Well done.

Mmmm hops, and lots of it. Pours an amber brown with off white foam, creamy, thin and lasting. Aroma is LOTS of citrusy hops. Taste is hops, a faint cheese like taste, gives way to malt (doughy), and then right back to hops - white grapefruit like citrusiness. If you donít like hops, "youíre not worthy" to like this beer. Thanks to Jen for procuring this one for me.
