AHB Arrogant Bastard
While Stone is generous in sharing many of its recipes with the public, they keep Arrogant Bastard under lock and key. I've seen so many recipes out there for it, none of them the same. 1 fact mentioned by Stone brewers in interviews is that AB is a single hop brew. A fact known to me, as I know folks at Stone, is that they use a lot of chinook hops. This recipe uses only chinook hops, which is why I bought it. I was blown away. A side by side taste test proved it to be pretty damn close, which was a nice surprise, especially since I brewed the LEX kit. Gets better the longer its in the bottle too. One reviewer mentioned it wasn't hop forward enough, but they left in secondary for 3 weeks. That may be too long, May have blown a lot of the hop aroma out through the airlock. 10-14 days should be plenty. I'll definitely brew this again AG.

This is kegged right now and looking really good. The color, smell and taste are pretty darn close to the real thing and I haven't even let this age to maturity yet. I live in DE so finding Stone beers can be tough. I figured I'd try to make clones of whatever I cannot get and this one is shaping up to be a beauty. The kit was complete and the directions were simple and easy to follow. That plus the flat rate shipping makes AHS my new go to homebrew shop.

Woo, this is more bitter than I remember but it is good. Good head, nice initial brown sugar taste, and a hop bite finish. After six weeks in the bottle the bitterness is mellowing a bit more. A little more bottle conditioning and it should be just right.

I've never tried the original but the clone is excellent. I agree with others, it is a bitter beer but in a really good way. A nice sweet taste for a fairly strong beer. Excellent flavor. Conditioned in keg 2 weeks now and gets better with each sample.
