What the press is saying about Double Bastard Ale
"Well-made extreme beers have their place for sure - whether a barley wine on a cold winter night, or a hopped-up crazy, over-the-top yet balanced brew like Stone Brewing Company's Double Bastard Ale." - The New York Times
"...a more intense version of Arrogant Bastard, with an alcohol quotient of 10%." - Los Angeles Times
"If the ale is arrogant, this arrogance is well earned, given Double Bastard's freakishly high IBU count and 10% alcohol by volume." - Modern Brewery Age
"Imagine the rich and malty flavors of the regular Bastard, but with enough hops crammed into the mix to give their Ruination a run for its money." - Boise Weekly
"This malt & hop monster is not for the timid..." - TheFullPint.com
