I've only recently been introduced to The Stone Brewing Company. That said, from the very first sip I knew I was not a typical brew. It wasn't even a typical craft brew. My initial response to a Stone Brewing Company product was "Wow, I think this might be the best beer I've ever tasted!". That was the Stone IPA. This is my first try of Arrogant Bastard Ale and after my taste buds stopped screaming "Uncle!", my response was "Ahh, Seven Hells, that's good!!". The first thing that caught my attention was smell. I knew then that Fate, that sultry mistress with the warm hand and sensible footwear had pushed us together and I was truly in for a treat. The rich head on this beer is the equivalent of a steak dinner at the Buckhorn Exchange. Once the beer hits your tongue it's like a cacophony of flavors. It takes your mind a few seconds to catch up with it. This beer is almost too good.

Bordowa barwa. Ladna grubsza piana. W zapachu grejfrutowe i wyraznie slodowe. W skamku wyrazna przyjemna goryczka przez dluzszy czas pozostajaca na podniebieniu. Piwo naprawde warte polecenia! PaulMcClure (12) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 Stylistically I don’t really know how to classify this beer, but I know I like it! Bitter but malty, boozy but still pleasant to drink: this is a beer I don’t see myself getting tired of. ccubaka (43) - LATVIA - JUL 20, 2017
You are not worth it, truth be told no one is. It is quite strong, maybe just a bit bitter. But be aware that you should have just a little bit, after more than one there is high risk of having a bad next day. BlackBeerPG (671) - Darien, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2017
Taste: rich, smooth, malty, roasted flavors balance well with just the right amount of hops for this style. Mildly spice malt nose. Deep mahogany/copper hue, mostly clear, with a tan head and some lace. Medium/full body. Very drinkable. alex_leit (4051) - Minsk, BELARUS - JUL 16, 2017

Flasche in den USA und jetzt auch 0,5l Dose aus Berlin. Braun kastanienfarbenes klares Bier, schöne Kohlensäurebläschen an der Glaswand. Brauner hoher Schaum. Toffe, Malz, Karamel und Hopfen in der Nase. Dazu etwas reifer Käse. Der Antrunk ist ein Schlag ins Gesicht. Wuchtig bittere Kräuter. Viel Hopfen. Hat was von Fernet Branka. Dazu Malz und verbranntes Karamell. Langes extrem bitteres Finish. Eisenkraut. Dieses Bier war eines meiner ersten Craftbiere, dass ich 1998 in den USA getrunken habe. Es ist bis heute eines meiner Lieblinge. Es mag bessere geben, aber den ersten Craftbeer Geschmack vergesse ich nie! Toll, dass es das jetzt auch frisch aus Deutschland gibt. Go Stone! luksow (68) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 12, 2017
Caramel and pines in aroma - nice! Red-ish colour, nice head (a bit too big while pouring). Intense caramel taste, malty. Excellent IPA, must-taste! GeorgePratt (77) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2017
