On Tap @ the East Village Tavern
A- Pours a deep reddish copper with a huge foamy head that descends to a rocky, then frothy, cover that lasts, leaving broken rings and patches of lacing.
S- The smell is citric, piney and very resiny - spicy hops assault the nose. Some carob/rye in the back.
T- The taste is resiny, piney, grapefruity, spicy. Hops are aggressively in the forefront. Rye backs it up, as does a pinch of caramel sweetness as it progresses. Alcohol is there, but mellow. M-Finishes very dry.Full-bodied with an adequate amount of carbonation keeping it from being too thick
Plenty of hops in this one! A nice use of rye gives it a unique character, arrogant bastard used to be my favorite kick ass beer, but i think this one just took its place
Serving type: on-tap
