I had my first Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale last night and loved it. I then immediately went back to the store and got their IPA. I liked it too, but the Arrogant Bastard has such a full bodied flavor...it's amazing.
Has anyone been successful at doing a clone of this? Even if I don't try to do a clone of it, I'd still like to get that aggressive hop aspect to a beer without making it too overwhelming or taking over the taste of the malt. Any suggestions as to how to get that full, strong hops flavor in a beer? What hops to use, how long to steep them, etc?
