I didn't like the smell or the taste. It smelled very pine-hoppy and tasted likewise. This is the second time that I have tried Arrogant Bastard from the bottle. The first was prior to learning about beer styles and their characteristics so I figured that I should try it again. Maybe it is better from the tap if it is sold that way.

Taste like asprin... effin hate it so much.. yuck! I had that taste on the tip of my tounge that was numbing. I thought it would be awesome without that nasty taste. Its however smooth.. If they change that taste I would engage another drink. Its not horrible but maybe you should buy 1 22oz. and try it out... who knows you might like it. It also was like 4 dollars at a store in Portland oregon.

the beer looks nice and the bottle tries hard to stand out, but that's about all i like about this beer. the hops are just so overbearing that it left me with a muddy/earthy flavor in my mouth. have you ever smelled plain ole raw hop pellets before used for brewing? that's what this beer tastes like. there's absolutely no malty sweetness to balance it out either. yeah it masks the alcohol well, but so what? this beer is just so gimmicky to me. hops are great for adding bitterness and aroma, but this beer uses way too much of them.
