This bastard isn't as arrogant as he could be. I mean, if I was a strong arrogant ale, I'd probably make sure people could smell me from across the room.

Look: medium maple/amber. Medium head with not much retention and a good amount of lacing.

Smell: Not much aroma. VERY...VERY faint grapefruit perhaps.

Taste: I really enjoy the taste of this bastard. It's just a great medium-colored strong ale. A nice alternative to lighter IPA's. And it warms quite nicely.

As with most of the standard Stone offerings, this can be found just about anywhere. It's inexpensive and I always enjoy it. The ABV is ~7.2 but it sure as hell seems to hit harder than that!

And just maybe the lack of fragrant hoppiness is a good thing....I'm not quite sure.
