Arrogant Bastard Ale (650ml Bottle)
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth
Dark amber pour with good head and lacing. Nose is some really pleasant floral hops and alcohol. Taste is overpoweringly, brutally hoppy, but with some good malt balance. Honestly though, this beer is all about hops—bitter, floral, and delicious. Pretty damned good.
American Strong Ale
Not a style, per se, but the only logical category to incorporate the plethora of strong, stylistically vague beers coming from American micros these days. Some are related to English Strong Ales, but with more hop, while others are ultra-strong variants on the IPA theme. But no matter how varied their origins or characters might be, all are intense, potent, with generous quantities of hops and malt.
