look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Pours a murky brown color with a fairly dense khaki colored head that left some webby lacing on the glass.
S- The aroma is dominated by tropical fruit and piney hops. Some fresh and buddy notes to go with a lemony twang.
T- Big pine and resin like hop bitterness; tastes like you are drinking some bitter pine sap. The hops are supported by a bready malt that has some lemony tea like characteristics. Some honey and chocolate notes are detected.
F- The feel is moderate with prickly carbonation, finishes bitter, which is a bit lingering.
D- The "Arogant" line is good but not sure if it is my cup of tea. The hop profile is more bitter centric than I prefer and a touch harsh. It is tasty but not sure something I would continously buy more of.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a DFH Signature Glass, the beer pours a hazy reddish/copper color with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is mostly citrusy (grapefruit, orange peel) and pine hops, along with some caramel malt. Taste is citrusy and pine hops, caramel malt, and some vanilla and oak. Not surprisingly, there's a nice lingering bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and a bit slick with good carbonation. The smoothness of this brew helps make the drinkability good. I think it's a good overall brew, definitely worth a try. With that being said, I like the other Bastards more than this one. It was still a cool idea to blend them anyway!

Poured from a bomber into an IPA glass.

A- Great head! A full two inches thick and caramel colored. The ale is pretty dark and kinda red.

S- Dark fruits (really?) and oak mostly...maybe some citrus as well. Really enjoyable.

T- Sweet oaky pine cones followed right away by a hop blast. I get a lil of the alcohol on the finish.

M- As it should be, unnoticed. The beer flows around my mouth without so much as a hint of anything to distract from the taste.

O- Stone pulls this off every time...it's a fine beer for Friday night or Monday afternoon...with dinner or afterward with cigars. The nose on this might be even better that the taste...
