look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

A- brown, of course, with nice amber highlights -- almost the same color as the bottle. Possessed a thin, tan head that reduced to film; not much lacing.

S- a layered aroma of hops, malt, and an almost IPA-like citrus background. I don't detect any oak on the nose.

T- compared to 'regular' Arrogant Bastard, this beer is more mellow. Still plenty of up-front hops, but the subtle oak flavoring in the background counterweights and provides a wonderful balancing effect. The IPA effect I got on the nose isn't evident on the palate. But the flavour is robust and also has a wonderful aftertaste.

M- very light. The bitterness hangs around afterwards, but as the ale is on the tongue, it is quite lively and light, not in the least bit heavy.

D- No noticeable alcohol; well-balanced carbonation. Mellow with a nice pucker in the aftertaste. This beer is exceptionally drinkable.
