COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lukcy Basartd is a dry-hopped meeting-of-the-Bastards in a in-the-fermenter-blend of Arrogant Bastard Ale and Double Bastard Ale…with a perfect balance of the essence of OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale. All in all, one awesome Bastard.

Lukcy Basartd Ale will be released in November and should be available in many of the enlightened locations where the liquid Arrogance is typically found.

This is a ‘once only’ special release commemorating the 13 year anniversary of when Arrogant Bastard Ale was first released upon the unsuspecting public. That is, ‘once only’ unless we decide to make it again.

Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Caramel, raisin, and lemon aroma. Smooth (smoother than Arrogand Bastard, anyway) taste with raisin, caramel, earthy and woody notes, and light citrus notes. Bitter finish. Pretty darn tasty.

TheBear11D (361) - Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2015
22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. The Lukcy Bastard pours a clear ruby red with a thick frothy light tan head that lasts a very long while. The aroma is caramel, floral and bread. The flavor is sharp floral hops with a caramel background rounded with bread and a touch of pine. The body is medium with active carbonation. Overall this is a very nice brew.

seymour (1591) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2015
Split a bomber bottle at Jed’s party, thanks for sharing. It poured a deep reddish amber with persistent beige foam and lace. Predictable over-the-top Arrogant Bastard traits: big malt and big hops. This one’s even bigger overall with added hardwood-aged complexity. Good stuff.

BadAprilia1000 (343) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pours a lovely reddish brown with a good sticking head. Aroma is pine, hops, floral, caramel, toffee, tropical fruit, citrus, malt, light vanilla sweet, oak. Taste is smooth, caramel, biscuit, toffee, floral hops, malt, bitter. Great one again, a bit smoother than any of them alone.

kajser27 (159) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 31, 2015
Ruby to brown colored, very nice but small beige head. Aroma is of caramel and toffee and citrus to pine hops with some resin qualities. Taste moderate sweet caramel malts, biscuit, bit of toffee, sticky brown candied sugar, a bit woody, lots of pine, less so with citrus, some floral, some resin. Medium to heavy on the bitterness and dry finish. Weaker side of full bodied, oily. Excellent stuff!

Pours dark amber with a off white head. Tropical fruit aroma with Papya and citrus. Caramel malt start with tropical fruit citrus and pine.

demannu (126) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Loved reading the label. However i felt a bit let down by the drinking experience. Was expecting something...different. Really didn’t set itself apart from the other Bastards. May have been my least favorite from the box set, definitely the most disappointing.

Koskela (365) - Marysville, California, USA - MAR 22, 2015
A deep maltieness and hint of tart with wood come from this clearish reddish brew with an offwhite head. The taste is sweetish with oak and bitterness in the aftertaste. This lightish medium bodied brew has good carb. And is well balanced and worth the try. Has a ver slight warming feelin from the alcohol.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 22, 2015
A deep copper color with a beige head. The aroma contains some caramel, citrus, toasted bread, and chocolate. The flavor is bitter with a bit malty profile existing on it. It contains some bitter notes with chocolate, toffee, citrus, and alcohol. How is this beer ANY different than Arrogant Bastard. Its like holy crap Im whisked away to 2001 and me getting into craft beer. Not a bad thing. Overall this is basically a tweek on a classic. Good.
