Throw modesty out the window. Stone Brewery is justifiably allowed to call this beer arrogant. You know why? Because this beer exudes confidence. This beer goes to the rock show and steals your girlfriend because you aren't as interesting nor nearly as satisfying as this beer. This beer could walk into Anheuser-Busch, steal a clydesdale, and ride out bareback screaming, "where's your crown king nothing." Yeah I'm not joking. The origin story of this beer is very entertainingly documented on the back of the bottle. I encourage you to read it.

This beer has a rich taste that is comparable to none. It has a dark amber appearance, and a deliciousness that demands your attention. Regardless of your beer drinking preference, you will enjoy this beer. Unless of course, Budweiser and Yuengling are your chart toppers, in which case, you wouldn't even be on this website to begin with, because your palate would be anything but educated. This is no time to be humble. There is no pride before the fall at Stone Brewery. Only the pride in knowing that if you try this beer, they have again broadened someone else's horizons. You don't have to sell your soul to the devil, but you should give your beer money to the Stone Brewery Gargoyle.

Pours of a caramel color and strong notes of hops, grapefruit and what I would consider zest. From start to finish this says Stone Brewery. About an inch and 1/2 head that sticks around for most of the entire time you are drinking it. I tried it chilled rather then really cold and noticed the some of the flavors were getting lost drinking this beer to cold. Overall this is my go to beer when I go out and pairs perfectly with a good meaty cheeseburger.
