This beer is not just the "Big Brother" to Arrogant Bastard; this is the "Big Brother who's an All-Star linebacker, 6'6"", 285 lbs., kind of a cross between Todd Alstrom and Arnold Schwarzenegger." If you think the li'l Bro is too hoppy, you won't like this... You are definitely NOT worthy.
It pours a dark amber, with a tan head. Aromas are Grapefruit, caramel, malt, pine. The first predominant taste is malt, surprisingly enough for such a hop monster, and it's balanced pretty well against the hops insanity. Also present are caramel, currant, grapefruit, cola, toffee. A smooth mouthfeel French-kisses you like Cathy Keane did in the car after the movies.Then, the linebacker comes out to finish you upside the head with grapefruit and pine.

Served on tap in a 14oz glass at Heartbreakers in Chaska.
Great beer, who's 2013 edition is far better than some of the recent Enjoy bys. In a beer this strong, you sometimes worry that the alcohol content will take over the taste profile. That is definitely not the case here.
