look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Very dark, deep ruby coloring this ale poured a nice creamy one finger head that never went away. Very pretty in the snifter, this is a good looking ale.

The aroma is more hoppy than expected. I did get a bit of malty sweetness, but more of the woodsy pine notes from the hops. Trust me that's not bad as these piney notes are quite floral and nicely fragrant.

The taste is of a quality IPA, piney and floral, but it's disarmed by a a sweet malt backing that blends very well together. The tastes are strong and noticeable, so there's plenty to be arrogant about.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Tap at alewife in Baltimore.

Big creamy head fades slowly with lacing, hazy dark honey colored.

Nose fresh slightly resinous hops, little spicy and floral, grassy, but of sweet candy toasty reddish malts, fruity hops.

Taste starts with fresh hops but spicy earthy very resinous hop, musty, very hops, light grapefruit and bit of citrus and blood orange, Sweet candied orange peel hop character as well, light zest, fairly bitter but not as much as I expected. sweet malty base. Finish is sticky sweet, very bitter and spicy, lingering musty resin and light orange peel.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, decent carb hint of warming booze.

Overall interesting but I built it up too much hype for this and it was OK, decent but not great. Felt like a double dry hopped Arrogant Bastard should have been amazing.
