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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 29, 2013
A - Pours a cloudy dark amber copper with a 2 finger foamy off-white head with excellent retention. S - Fresh grapefruit citrus, earthy pine, plums, toasted malt T - A bounty of fresh grapefruit rushes in with huge flavor and bitterness. A resiny pine shows up towards the finish. The caramel malt has a roasted fruit character and provides just enough sweetness to counteract the complex hops. Aftertaste is nutty and bitter with the malt still lingering on the palate. M - Full bodied with good carbonation. A citrus wonderland along with a carameled fruit malt makes mouth happy. Complex hop profile that keep going and going. Just an awesome brew. Serving type: bottle 11-13-2010

bartlebier (1184) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
(backlog recollected in abstinence) Shared tap pitcher, shared at Pork Slope, Brooklyn 09/2012.Thanks to Steve and John for taking us here!). Welcome palate rinser after an evening of bbq-sauce clad swine debauchery. Comes complete with the signature Stone palate cleaver hop profile, heavy on spruce and citric rind astringent bitterness (going on flowery, green resins) - at that clinically clean, yet from tap mercifully mellowed out by a solid and crisp pale malt randiance. Not necessarily an ideal subtle aperitif, but very well made.

Beautiful beer reach deep color. Aroma is floral hops. Taste is indeed aggressive with a strong hop flavor throughout accented by small roasty notes

This is my go-to beer for everyday enjoyment. It’s got the bitterness of a really good IPA, but also has body and smoothness. The nose is wonderful, and the aftertaste is forever. The only minor flaw is that the head is just a little too bubbly and doesn’t last quite as long as one might like. Now that it’s in the local Costco, there is absolutely ZERO reason to experiment around. For a quiet evening at home, this is THE ONE.

firemarshal (106) - North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Deep reddish brown color. Aroma is brown sugar, resin. Taste is licorice, bubblegum, dank hops. Bitter, alcoholic aftertaste. All these are good things. Very well crafted brew.

ABS (382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 14, 2014
Brown. Hints of red. Off-white head. Malt, wort, hop and alcohol nose. Sweet. Some bitterness. High carbonation. A bit lower than medium body, which is a bit too thin for this beer in my opinion. Pine, citrus, malt, some wort, hint of metal aroma.

Handypaul (161) - - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear reddish brown with a big lasting beige head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and grass. Medium body, medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter taste, soft carbonation, flavors follow the nose with the addition of citrus and spruce bitterness. Finish starts sweet and ends bitter. Wonderfully balanced and complex.

beer-yum (357) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 13, 2014
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Aptly named marque brew that is full bodied, brilliantly balanced, and a definitive benchmark of the style.

Arrogant Bastard is much as it's written on the back of the bottle. It's a delicious, up front ale that steps up and satisfies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best beers. i admit I’m a little biased, Stone is my favorite Brewery, but with good reason, they make awesome beer.

Jabic (385) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2014
Ar: Zesty orange, juicy - some faint toasted caramel. Ap: Deep amber-red, clear - large tan head with good retention, leaves foam trail and a solid cap. T: Orange, peace, and toasted caramel - some light roast, high bitterness - grapefruit and lemon - resiny, thick hop flavor - rich caramel backbone that is sweet up front, but never becomes cloying. P: Medium-full body with high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Really nice strong, hoppy American red ale - great depth of caramel flavor with big, bright hop notes.
