A - Looks good. Dark red, maroon colour. A little cloud. Head is just off-white. Nice lacing.
S - Very hoppy, just like an IPA. Floral and a little piney.
T - A really nice, big taste. A big caramel and bread malt taste up front. Quickly balances out perfectly with an equally big, piney hop flavour. Has a little spiciness to it. Aftertaste is boozey, bitter and citrusy. Overall a really great taste.
M - Also great. Pretty highly carbonated.
O - An exciting and very drinkable beer, with a lot of character. Very fun to drink. Will definitely have again.

Arrogant seems to be the right word as this ale proudly displays a deep rusty hybrid of red and brown. The head is equally as strong with a thick creaminess and thick lacing.
The scent is not nearly as proud but light malt and hop aromas are definitely in the mix. Subtle tea leaves and floral earthy hops are also evident.
Almost Pale Ale like taste Arrogant Bastard presents an earthy, floral array of hop flavors. Not as much on the malty or grain side this Strong Ale is pronounced in its hop flavor. The tea leaves manifest themselves and then a piney metallic aftertaste takes hold.
Overall, it's strong in appearance and hop flavor but slightly weak in aroma and overall character. Very good but not great.
