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.

PhillyCraft (2852) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle. Stupid commercial description. Stupid spelling. Pours an amber brown with medium head that didn’t last. Notes of hop booze, heavy pine, toffee, malts, wood, and oranges. Lots of candy sugar in this. Med to heavy carbonation with medium body. Just too much for me

wedgie9 (1794) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Tasted on 1/31/13 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours dark cola brown with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to thick and rocky lace. The nose is full of caramel malt and fading hops, with plenty of pine, citrus, and just a touch of brown sugar. The flavor is the same, quite malty, with the intensely bitter pine and citrus hops dominating the back of the palate. The body is full with average, but very smooth, carbonation and a very long caramel malt and piney resin hops finish. After a long while, I get a bit of a smokey and oaky note on the finish. Although I believe that this is past its prime (I tasted it on the "Enjoy By" date), it is still pretty vibrant and is definitely a Stone beer.

fidelis83 (1831) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Hazy copper pour with a 1 finger, soapy, yellow cake head. Nice citrus and pine right up front in the nose, caramel, toffee, spicy hops, carmelized tree fruit, and a hint of earth. Flavor is dark caramel, twiggy wood notes, lots of pine, lots of citrus too, but the pine really takes it, yeasty, crusty bread, husky grain and some light booziness. Heavy body with a creamy, syrupy entry, light, but fairly sharp carbonation and dry, slightly astringent finish. Pretty tasty stuff, a little rough around the edges, but it seems to come together into a nice package.

Good balance between malts and hops. Tastes of bread, malt and citrus. I liked it better than the Double Bastard. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

timberrr (43) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2013
22 oz bottle with enjoy by date of Jan 31, 2013. Pours a reddish copper, mostly clear with a little sediment floating. Nice tan white fluffy head with good retention. A nice cap stayed throughout the glass. Aroma is light but it does have a nice citrus, piney smell. Taste is a great balance of malts and hops. Grapefruit citrus flavor in the beginning with a caramel/toffee middle and a piney resin finish. Get a bit of sweetness but then the finish is nice and dry. Mouth feel is good with a medium body and a moderate amount of carbonation. Overall I really liked this hybrid of the Bastard series, found it very well balanced and flavorful.

cards04 (1459) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours a deep mahogony with nice bubbly off-white head and lacing. Very dank and resinous aromas. Very green and vegetal smelling. Touches of sweet citrus aromas. Flavours are very bready and malty at first. Sweet caramel, then nice bitter piney hops. The palate is perfect...thick and full, with a bit of carbonation. Excellent stuff.
