Awesome auburn pour topped with a frothy and dense head that follows the brew all the way to the bottom of the glass with a heavy sitcky lace. The sweet and sour hop aromas are distinct but the flavor harps more on the bitter hop character rather than on any overwhelming sweetness. The medium body and lack of syrupy slick often found in these high hop/resin beers. The alcohol provides plenty of heat making this brew a nice winter warmer and over all a very very pleasant drink, holiday or otherwise.

Smells like fresh cone hops with a sweet cherry grapefruit like smell that mixes in with the sweet malt. The taste hits you with sweet on the tip of your tongue and then a real long dry bitter finish from middle to end. I love hopped up west coast beers. You can always count on them to have that extremely fresh resinous green hop bitterness. It just tastes so fresh because of this. This would be extremely hoppy if it weren't for the sweet malt that combines with an oak like flavor that you can definitely pick up. The combination is fantastic. It really is an IPA without being an IPA but with more malts. This is an amazing beer and it combines 3 quality beers in one to get that flavor. The Arrogant Bastard Ale, Oaked Aged Arrogant Bastard and the Double Bastard. I'm glad they came up with this idea because it adds for a really complex rich tasting beer that is very hoppy resinous and piney. It has a full body feel and since you can taste the raw hops with the sweet malt the alcohol hardly comes through for 8.5. What an amazing beer. Stone never fails when it comes to top notch quality beer.
