Interesting blast of bitterness out of the bomber. Then....as if by magic it disappears. Then its enjoyable and I could imagine ordering another if I were at a bar. Cool deep copper color nice head that’s thin but hangs right in there. Not too shabby...Probably great with grilled meats,would buy again.

On tap at Rogue on West Broadway in Vancouver. Served in a 10 oz glass and re-poured into a large snifter. A very dark copper coloured beer with generous tan head. Bitter hop nose. This is a very bitter and hoppy beer, but with very mellow malt and fruit notes as well. All in all a very mellow beer, but the sharp hop note remains. Unusual in a good way! 4.0.

On tap at Brothers Beer Bistro (Ottawa, ON). Dark brown, hazy body with a lasting beige frothy/creamy head. Rich malty/hoppy aroma with woody, brown sugar, yeasty, ans spicy hints. Its robust, sharp hoppy taste carries malty, herbal, citrusy, and oaky notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. Bang on!

On tap at corporate brewhouse that makes me want to slit my wrists. But hey, at least they have Arrogant Bastard. Great deep copper color, bitter as hell but in the best possible way. Toasted cereal and hops. Great palate. I just wish this beer had less alcohol as I want to drink copious amounts and I fear tomorrows headache!

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap. Tanned medium head, layered lace. Deep ruby amber. Nice malty and hoppy aroma. Hoppy bitter with leather, broad malts, cream toffee, cranberries. Tasty, mouthwatering, yet dry palate, smooth nicely biting carbons. Long bitter aftertaste. Very complex, plenty, everything in a perfect balance of arrogance and classiness.
