Pours a brilliant deep copper-red with a frothy, dense quarter inch khaki head that won't dissipate.
Floral, fruity hops, resin, pine, fresh cut grass leap from the glass. There's a subtle caramel malt sweetness in the background that hints of dark fruit.
Dank hops dominate the initial flavor, with sweet caramel malt coming in and fading mid palate, bowing to resinous bitterness that lingers through the finish. Grapefruit, catty hops, and pine emerge in subsequent sips, but the balance is decidedly resiny and bitter. The malt sweetness provides nice respite in later sips, along with dark fruit.
Body is on the full side, with moderate carbonation and slight alcohol warmth, with a big resiny bite.
Decidedly bitter, but balanced in extremes, to an extent. A glutton for punishment, the promise of sweet malt draws me back in for the bitter hop beating.
Serving type: on-tap

Stone Arrogant Bastard
I'm just not worthy !
Poured into pint glass
A: I'm just not worthy
S: Again, not worthy
T: Eh' . . . Still not worthy
M: I can't handle the worthiness
O: I sound like a Wayne's World episode I know. Maybe I'll come back to this one again someday. After all . . . There was a time that I could not stand ipa's either (parish the thought I know). But for now . . . Well, you guessed it, I'm not worthy and I'm ok with that.
