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.

Deep rich ruby-copper with a frothy brown head. Mouthwatering aromas of burnt english toffee and soft fruits. Chunky brown sugar malt married to strong resiny/citrus hop character. Incredibley enjoyable. Well-earned arrogance.

Amber and perfectly clear, oily hoppy aromaand hints of german malt peek though, a initiial bitter hoppy beer but amazing enough there is a ton of malt to balance this out. one of the best bottle beers I have had

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 Had it on tap at the Beer Sellar in Newport Ky, which made for an even more enjoyable experience than what I had experienced via bottle. Full of hops.

The Arrogant Bastard pours a nice reddish brown color with a medium sized head. The aroma is strongly hoppy with some spices. The taste is very hoppy, but with enough malt to balance it fairly well. I wasnt blown away by this one, but it is a solid brew. "

Bottle. Dark brown but not quite opaque. The head is full, but faded quick. The aroma is clearly peaches. BTW, I hate peaches. But, I will soldier on. The body is medium light with a clear flavor of pine and peaches overlaced with alcohol. The finish is short and bitter, owing to the overhopping. I suspect that the brewer hopped this to piss-off and macro drinker who picked this beer by mistake. Im dinging the Aroma, Flavor and Overall for the peach flavors I do not like.

This isnt the first time Ive had this beer but I appreciate it now much more than when I had it at a beer fest years ago. The bitter hoppy finish seems to glide on through, leaving me scant time to appreciate its rose-like floral bouquet which to me is the bonus part of this beer. That bonus is a bit overshadowed by the bitterness. The aroma seems to some character too but the malty character seems to subdue its potential exuberence. The overall aggressiveness of this beer isnt bad but it seems a tad unbalanced to me as far as the hops are concerned.

Bomber. Pours a reddish amber with a lacy off-white head. Aromas of oranges, pine, fruit, malt and yeast. Creamy medium tot full body with light carbonation. The taste starts lightly sweet with toffee, oranges and goes to a lingering bitter piney grapefruit finish.

Bomber bottle. Beautiful dark reddish color with an aroma of hops and fruit, maybe raisins or cherries. Real big on flavor, from the hop bite to the mellow malt, this is a full bodied big beer that doesnt quit. Tasty and enjoyable, Ill be getting more of this one. Stone really knows what they are doing!

One of the best bottle Descriptions of any beer. This is another great Hoppy beer from Stone. Not as aggressive as I would of thought but still a great crisp full flavored beer.
