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.

I poured a pint from a 22, and I gotta say, it was bitter, very bitter. While I got the other flavors from it, it just was bitter, add had a very dry bitter after taste. I have been a fan of the oaked version of this beer, which I found to be a lot smoother, I have to chalk this experience up to the beer being old or slightly skunked. That being said, I still enjoyed the flavor while drinking the brew.

Pours a copper color with a medium head. VERY strong and hoppy. Some sweet notes to counter the aggressiveness.

im not worthy. well an average beer to a well seasoned palate compared to their slogan. but a good craft beer for anyone starting trying to adventure into aggressive beers

650ml bottle. Pours dark caramel with a large, frothy head. Aroma is sticky toffee pudding, raisin, barley wine-esque. Taste has a little caramel to start. Strong piney bitter finish.

Good beer. Nice bitterness, mixed with a good malt depth. Simply too hoppy for my palate... I just don’t like hops! :(

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2011
22oz bottle. Hazy reddish color, thin fading tan head, some lacing. Very dry texture. Bitter hops taste, but the malty, cherry, mildly alcoholic aroma is dominant. Strong aftertaste, some sweet after the finish. Delicious and interesting, but kind of painful for 7.2% ABV. When I rated the Oaked version a long time ago, I seemed to love it, however. I may need to revisit that and see if it’s stood the test of time... I realize that these Arrogant Bastards taste 3x better with a meal though. That could have added .2 or so, I’d imagine

deyholla (9711) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2011
On tap at petrol station. Pours a clear deep amber with a yellowish brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma is full of resinous pine and a bit of backing grapefruit. Flavor is simIlar with lots of resinous pine and grapefruit backed by cookies. Nice and smooth.

Chudwick (2704) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - AUG 19, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 Bomber - pours amber with beige head and nice lacing. Nose is grapefruit. Flavor adds lemon peel and caramel. Bitter and slightly sweet. Grapefruit aftertaste. Long bitter finish. Medium body. A weak DIPA that sits in the back of room whilst brooding. ///////////// Draft in a Trappist glass -pours opaque brown with light tan head. Strong hop aroma with hints of plum. Taste is bitter and provides a long finish. Aftertaste is even hoppier than at first sip. Lots of character but the reason I don’t like it is quite simple: the hoppiness, though I appreciate the beer as a whole. 7/4/6/3/12 or 3.2. On 8/19/2011
