Is there a reson this doesn’t come up as "Stone" Arrogant Bastard Ale? [A] Very simple. Caramel. Citrus hops. Some fruitiness. [A] A very nice looking pour. Amber brown body with tan head. [F] Lots of citrus and crystal malt. Hoppiness overpowers most of the body here. Some fruit. [P] Hoppy. And not hard to drink. I wouldn’t call this a session beer. But the bitter would keep me coming back. Mild-bodied. Smooth, yet prickly mouth. [O] Overall, I don’t really feel this is a "great" ale. It is nice. But lacking complexity. Just a bitter bomb from the west coast.
Pours a clear deep mahogany with a full beige head. Nose is sweet malt and hops.Taste is sweet malt, toffee with a bitter aftertaste that lingers. 16 oz can Canned: 11/8/17 Fresh. BBY: 3/18/17 kapusil (1531) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 15, 2017
0.5l can. Hazy ruby body with a huge, thick and lasting dark beige head. Looks great for sure. The aroma is mostly about dried fruits like dates and raisins with just a bit of citruses and pine and some nutmeg to give it a spicy twist. The taste on the other hand is all about hops. Loads of pine and some grapeseed in the taste without the dried fruits present in the aroma. Only a bit of toast here to represent the malts. Could be way better with a bit of caramel or dried fruits in the taste, but I still find this nice. Its price is also very nice (it was brewed in Berlin and I bought it in Budapest).

It's a strong ale, for sure. Too much hop flavor for my tastes, there's no hint of malty undertone, just hops. It looks great, with the color and head, but i wish it was balanced better. yoxik75 (318) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 10, 2017

Piana obfita zdobi szkło, utrzymuje się. Kolor zmętniony bursztyn wpadający w czerwień. Aromat ubogi, delikatnie las, iglaki. Smak pełnia, karmel, ALE-owa delikatna owocowośc, chmielenie w żywiczny-cytrusowy charakter. Wyraźna dość wysoka, lekko zalegająca goryczka, alkohol ukryty. Piwo dobre, solidne, pije sie przyjemnie, choć jak na styl za mało american i za mało strong. Na pewno bez zachwytów i top50 w ratebeer mnie dziwi bo są lepsze piwa w stylu bez tego tytułu.
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Pre-RateBeer review, so no tasting notes. 4/5 note jotted in my 1001 Beers guide. Will return to this beer when I get the chance. Had on draught as a guest beer in a BrewDog bar. snowcrash000 (58) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2017
Pours a deep, dark red coloration with a small, medium, creamy, off-white head. Smells faintly of biscuity, caramel malts, toffee and red berries, with a hint of pine. Taste follows the nose, with a firm, slightly sweet and caramelly malt presence backed up by bitter, piney hops. Hints of chocolate, toffee, red berries and citrus. This is an expertly crafted and balanced amber ale that has great complexity without sacrificing drinkability. The balance between sweet malts and bitter, piney hops is exceptional with some nice layers of fruitiness and slight chocolate and toffee notes inbetween. tombutlin (370) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 17, 2017
Probably the most unpleasant beer I've ever tried. And you lose points for being cocks. Perhaps there's a good beer in there somewhere, but then they added drain cleaner. There is no need for this level of astringency. If Trump made beer, it would have this level of self confidence and total lack of taste and drinkability. wojanex (479) - warszawa, POLAND - NOV 12, 2017
Arogancko puszczone w żywioł słodu i chmielu, w tonacji gorzkiego karmelu, mogłoby być zdyskwalifikowane za niezrównoważenie gdyby nie piarowy elaborat na etykiecie i legenda awangardy craftowej. Do przyjęcia, pozycja obowiązkowa z powodów historycznych. Franksv6 (985) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2017 Brown colored beer with a hudge white head. Taste is bitter and malty. Long bitter afthertaste.
