Super Bowl XLV and Arrogant Bastard

Super Bowl Sunday that special day every February where modern day titans throw down.  For the special day a special ale from Stone Brewing Co. in California, Arrogant Bastard Ale.

The ale pours with about 1 inch of bright white head, and is the color of dark amber or copper.  The aroma is faint, I detect a slight citrus hop aroma, but malt controls the aroma here.  The flavor is a hop heads delight, piny, grapefruity hops  fill your mouth at the beginning followed by a nice malt backbone.  The mouth feel is slightly thick, bubbly and creamy.  This is one of the more powerful IPA's I have ever tasted...It's probably not for you, this ale is for true Arrogant Bastards!! I'm going to give this wonderful ale a A-....I will be drinking this again.
