    Re: Stone Brewing Co., North County San Diego - Smoked Porter

    I don't really remember the hops standing out so much as just a 'plain ol' weird', extra-strong maltiness unlike anything I have ever tried. As the bottle says, maybe I'm not worthy

    OOOPs, my mistake! That's what I get for using abbreviations! I'll get it right this time, I much prefer the Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale over the Samuel Smith's Celebration Ale. Phew, that was a close one. I hope the hop devil will forgive me.

    I think I went through 4 sixers of SNCA this year. Hell, you can still find it at Liquor Barn, though it's getting a little past its prime. My first homebrew IPA kinda turned out like the SNCA. I'm down to my last 3 bottles of that

    That's too funny Jeff! I do find their marketing both on that site and what is written all over the bottle pretty amusing... Sounds like it will be an interesting one to try!

    FWIW, they also brew a "Double Bastard" if you like the AG. I guess you could also call it an "Imperial Bastard". Sometimes I think there can be too much of a good thing

    Re: Stone Brewing Company - Arrogant Bastard Ale

    WE ARE WORTHY!

    Wow, this beer was alot different than both Bob and I thought it would be. Not as hoppy as I was expecting, I found it to have just the right balance. We were both pleased by the color it poured and the wonderful aroma. Initially this brew has an almost sweet fruity taste that finishes with a wonderful hop bitterness. Oddly enough it lingers in the back of your mouth for quite some time after swallowing. I say oddly because initially there is no real bitterness present but it all comes on at the end. I really liked this beer and will definitely try another at some point and I take it Bob was pleased as well.
