look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured a very attractive copper tea color with a 1 F head in a Double Bastard Glass- an excellent glass for both Double and Arrogant Bastard.

The aroma changed with temps. Served colder, there was a complex blend of vanilla, lemon, and grapefruit. This fades a bit with warming when the light grapefruit begins to dominate.

The moderately carbonated mouth feel leads to the chase: the taste and finish.

Having the Double Bastard a few weeks ago in the same glass was an interesting comparison.
The Arrogant Bastard is not tame- and not tamer than the DB. Rather the DB is AB on steroids.
The AB has major hops and bitterness to the finish,and a strong grapefruit taste. The AB is blended differently- there are subtle layers of grapefruit and other taste elements. The DB is "in your face". Equally complex, but far less subtle.

Great beer. I could drink this more regularly, unlike the DB which I could only drink on special occasions.
