1st thoughts: Arrogant Bastard Ale is probably the most popular American Strong Ale in New England. The first bomber from Stone Brewing Company (Escondido, CA) to make a play on the shelves of package stores throughout the bay state.

Review: Pours medium brown/red-ish in color with a moderate to sticky head. A hoppy yet smooth with a medium finish. A blast of hops upon first contact the taste smooths out and leaves with a killer bite.

Price: $6.75 for 1pint. (Boston, Mass.)

ABV:7.2%

As I hophead, I don't venture into the American Strong category often but of course Stone makes the deviation easy. Fantastic malts with just enough hops to keep it interesting. Between the artwork, appearance, aroma and flavor, what's not to love about this beer?
