22oz brown bottle

Arrogant Bastard Ale was a gorgeous reddish brown color. It has a thick, rocky, beige colored head with excellent retention and lacing. The smell was mainly piney hops with some sweet malt. The taste was piney hops and sweet caramel malt with balancing bitterness. The finish was long, hoppy and bitter. The mouthfeel was good with a medium-full body and medium body. Overall this is a very good, hoppy beer, and should be tried by any hop-lovers.

Poured from a 22oz bottle with an "Enjoy By" date of 12/29/2013; into a pint glass.
Appearance - burgundy, swirling carbonation; very thick, foamy, orange cream colored head that never leaves! Lots of sticky lacing!
Smell - citrus, pine and floral hops, some sweet candy; can slightly pick up on the alcohol.
Taste - aggressive hops, mostly floral. Subtle roasted barley and caramel malts.
Feel - a lot more bitterness from the hops than I was expecting...and I love it! Easy beer to drink for a hop head!
Overall - a hop forward standard for the style. I will now seek out Double Bastard and Oaked.
