COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wont like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

This beer is best described by "Chinook Hops" and just stopping there. This is a beer that is wonderful to drink, however, per its namesake, this will be the only beer you will be drinking that night, a real palate killer. Execlent beer to accompany curries and pho

"Surprising i like this more then i thought i would. Poured a ruby color with a small to medium head. Left good lacing on the glass. Smell citrus and hoppy. Taste sweet to start, then turns bitter. Very good beer."

Like a cheap skunky latin american malta vigor drink with a punch of alcohol. I liked the complex fruity undetone but I did not like the turn it took as it warmed. Most of this beers cousins would improve a little with warmth but this one does not. Nor does it play nice in a beer tasting.

Bottle thanx to Luke. Brown colour with a small off-white head. Sweet, grasst, hoppy, grape fruity aroma and taste. Medium to full body with a sweet bitter dry finish.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Deep mahogany pour, off white head. Thick, lovely lacing. Nose is grapefruit and some roasted malts. Flavors follow the nose, but more complex - lightly roasted malt, citrusy grapefruit, and a touch of sweetness - but just a touch! Finish is slightly bitter rising from the sides of the tongue. Very nice - for an arrogant bastard...

Delicious beer. Dark red. Some malt. Hop overload. Oddly smooth. Excellent.

This one runs hot and cold. And Ive found it to have quite a few variations from bottle to bottle and tap to tap. Its always pretty good, but some times it is really good. Ton of hops and grassy sweetness. Amazingly smooth mouthfeel. It could go to a 4, but Ill keep it at 3.8 due to its variation.

This Christmas ale was a big surprise. The neagtive hype on the bottle had me wondering what I was going to experience. The head formed nicely not over frothing. The color is a deep mahogany. The aroma was of hops and roasted malt. The complex flavors kept me wanting more. This is an ale to seek out. This certainly is a "worthy" ale.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Had on tap at the Yard House. Medium mahoganey pour with minimal halo of a head. Reeks of grapefruity hops, alcohol, citrus grove. Its hoppy. The taste is mostly hops, abusive, numbing hops. Almost totally linear like chewing on the pith of an underripe grapefruit. Maybe some raw, earthy, grassy barley at the finish. Pithy, ridiculously astringent, dry. Interesting, but not something Id trip my grandma for to get the last bottle on earth.

This ale has a lot to say. Terrific stout-bitter start with a complex and strong finish, lots of things going on here. My friends and I like to call this the "motor oil" of ales! Thats not nessessarily a bad thing however, if your a strong-ale person. Dont take the "warning" on the back of the bottle lightly though, some people will definately NOT like this one. Arrogant Bastard Ales is by all regards an aquired taste! Cheers!
