A touch boozy but all in all a very in your face brew from Stone.

Bottled on 10/14/14. Sampled and reviewed on February 19, 2015.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. Poured a very nice dark, roasted amber. Almost red, yet, almost brown. Barely any head whatsoever, mild carbonation. Smelll is weak, but hints of hops, citrus, lemon, orange, and apples. The first sip sent a chill down my spine. Very hoppy, with hints of spices. Also citrus/lemon is pretty apparent to me. Leaves with a dry finish. Lingering zest and hops after every sip.

I really wanted to like this beer, especially after being a fan of the original Arrogant Bastard Ale. But honestly, this one is just too much. I tried this by itself and with food, and it just dominates no matter what. Simply stronger than I prefer my beer. I decided to try it given the World Class rating, but it just didn't do it for me. Should've taken heed to the warning on the back I guess.
