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.

phaleslu (9427) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2011
22 oz. bottle via trade with michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a deep, ruby-amber color with a thick, foamy off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of the usual Stone grapefruity hops, sweet malts, and spicy grains. Flavor of grapefruit-citrusy hops, sweet malts, sugar, grass, and wood. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a bitter, chewy mouthfeel. Not a whole lot stands out as unique here, but it’s a solid, unmistakably Stone beer.

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2011
nice and arrogant, the way I like it! Little heavier than the regular bastard, much easier to drink than the double bastard, and a little smoother than either thanks to the oaked bastard. I’m sure all of that is the point, bottom line, all the bastards are great, and this one is too.

williamherbert (1509) - Syracuse, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Aroma is oily pine sap and orange peel. Rich tangerine notes and spicy malt with some rye. Appearance is deep ruby red. Thick, fluffy beige head that sticks around. Flavor is woody with a sweeter finish. Typical of a gritty, woody IPA that’s malt heavy but with a hop that’s just short of imperial. The palate is slick, smooth and nicely thick-bodied. Overall, all the Stones mixed together make a nice, balanced IPA. Plenty of woody hops, good malt counter.

blipp (8275) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Bottle. Pours red amber with a yellow beige head. Hoppy aroma, with floral notes, toffee sweet malts, and light oaky notes. The flavor is well balanced with floral, almost herbal hop notes, toffee, and light oak. Pretty good.

reggiedunlop (3675) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2011
pours an opaque amber/ruby color with a thick, creamy tan head...very lively looking...great lacing and retention. aroma is fairly floral with grapefruit and spice...also hints of caramel and raisin. flavor is slightly sweet and caramely at first but drys significantly with very hoppy flavors! some grapefruit, earthy and spicy hops. mouthfeel is a bit thin up front but is lively. finish is very earthy and hoppy and lingers for some time.

Bomber into snifter, shared with Anderson01. Pours a hazy orange with a thick off-white head with spidery lace; awesome retention. Aroma is strong in grapefruit and pine. Taste is mostly bitter with a sweet malt backbone. Medium carbonation, full-bodied. Pure quality. The lable hruts my brian, hwoevre..

BelgianBeerGal (3869) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Traded bottle, fairly fresh. It was big, it was hoppy, it was bitter, and it was pretty nice. Nice blend of citrus and pith in the hops. Only the finishing bitterness seemed a little flat to me. The dry hopping is readily apparent.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Bottle from the Pioneer Majestic. Dark pour with a beige head. Aroma is orange, a little wood, and tons of pine. Taste is surprisingly smooth, only a little alcohol, earthy bitterness, and just a little fruit. Good finish.

Cavie (4313) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a heavy orange color with reddish tints. Tall manilla folder head. Pungent aroma. Lots of plants, weed and harsh hops. Slight bit of mustiness. Flavor is hoppy upfront that fades well into better flavors. Fairly decent finish of wood and hops. Interesting.
