That's the one...haven't tried it yet. I have to go on a biz dinner with SWMBO tonight, so maybe I'll try it after, instead of just shooting myself in the head.

Let me know your thoughts - I couldn't get over the honey tones - they just seemed to mask it all for me. Assuming it's the same one that makes it's way to the UK and not another version they do!

didn't see a Pale ale description listed..........
ok you guys were right...whenever i hear 'brown ale' i think of poop colored weak english beers, i didnt realize american brown ales are acually really good. Arrogant b. is one of the, if not best strong beers ive ever had, its totally balanced. i usually dont drink beers much stronger than 6 percnt abv, unless its chimay or duval, but this beer drinks like its 5 percent. totally awesome beer!

Well i smelt and tasted it and thought 'Honey'. Then i read the bottle and thought 'Doh! My bad'. I LOVE a glass of dry mead once a year (it's in my sig!!!) but i don't rate it in beer or cider as a flavour at all.....

actually, i think Arrogant Bastard is 7.2% or 7.7%. i think the Ruinationa IPA from Stone is 7.&%.

the AB is awesome!

Well I'm a wimp, and I still like my ales a little sweet. I've got to say I kind of like this stuff...the hint of honey, balanced with the hop flavor, tastes pretty good to me.

I was just going to revive this thread tonight--I got to try some of the beers I bought last week....



Drinking a Ruination right now. It is good--but my beer geek tastebuds are picking up an astringency in it. Tat is killing it for me. Don't know exactly what it is. Need more research.

Tried Clipper City Loose Cannon Hops3 tonight as well. I'd say it is very similar to my Lake Walk Pale Ale recipe--but a touch sweeter and more hoppy, of course, it is supposedly triple hopped! It is pretty good!

Also got to try the Red Rocket Ale from BR. Good, but I was expecting more and kept thinking it was missing something. It sure did have some hops in it though!

Have you gotten to the Murphey's yet ? Stout is my weakness ( along with all other forms of alcohol except Yeagermeister and peppermint anything), but I particularly dig that one. What did the single run you in Va. ?

El P.- Once again, I like the new avatar. Kinda like A Clockwork Hop, there. Things must be pretty slow in the pro psychic biz for you to have time to dig that one up. Must say that your avatars never cease to amaze and entertain me. You're just cool like that.
