Had this on tap at the Stone Brewery in San Marcos. This is one fine beer altough not as good as I would have hoped. But on tap, its pretty good.

Bottle (Thanks WeeheavySD). Pours a nice solid amber color with a fair sized head. Lots of piney hops in the aroma, with a little citrus and some maltiness. Lots of hops in the flavor, with a bit of the oakiness coming through every so slighly. Definitely on the bitter side, but quite enjoyable. This is one I will look for again!

from a BA trade with b0ldfacelies, 12oz. bottle poured into an Imperial Pint A: Pours a bold, striking, vibrant reddish color featuring a huge, rocky off-white head. Like everything else about this beer, it makes a statement with its appearance. S: Smells more like the best DIPAs on the planet, loads of fresh-baked cookie goodness, and a gorgeous roasted nutty quality makes this aroma a serious winner. T/M: Again, bold is the word here. A blast of massively bitter grapefruit splashes your taste buds before giving way to the dark, roasted malt center. The grapefruit bitterness is joined by a long, aggressive piney finish. This beer doesnt so much get drank as it does ASSAULT your taste buds. Perfectly balanced carbonation makes it easy to wrestle with large gulps of this monster at a time. D: If this beer wasnt so dang expensive, Id buy it more often. Its ridiculously fun to drink, if not outright drinkable. Highly recommended!

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle. Woody hop aroma with citrus and a little funk. Pine more than grapefruit. Ruby body with a creamy, rich tanned head. Bit of dark malt and fruitiness in with medium-strong hoppy bitterness. Pineapple more than pine. Medium body is dry, has a light tingle from carbonation, and finishes much the same. A drop from regular AB: hops dont quite agree with me here, and the main draw of the original (its punishing, extreme bitterness) is lacking.

Duane shared a 12 oz. bottle with me. Dark amber pour with a bit of a white head. Very similar to AB, just toned down a bit from the aging I think. Some sweet malts and plenty of biting, piney hops, and just the slightest hint of some earthy notes from the oak aging. The oak aging wasnt too strong in this brew though. Got better as it warmed. Thanks Dad!

NachlamSie (3424) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a long lasting, level white head. A good level of pineapple and grapefruit is present in the nose with a vanilla sweetness and a bit of smoked wood. Im not that crazy about the flavor. The level of oak infusion is very tasteful, not overwhelming, but I think it clashes oddly with the pineapple suggestions which are present. I do like the biscuity flavor and mildly spiced finish quite well. I could drink one of these, but I wouldnt seek it out again. IMHO, the regular Arrogant Bastard is tastier.

elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Pours a dark brown with a white head. Has no lacing. Hints of hooooops, and some smoked wood flavor, and spices. Finishes with a sweet hop taste on the tongue.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle from trade. Pours a dark amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of hops and more hops. Taste is very citrusy with a very noticeable alcohol bite. Flavors of the oak is barely noticeable with the spices and grapefruit winning out on the finish. I was expecting a little more than I got from this brew. Not bad, just nothing special.
