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.

bu11zeye (12109) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2011
(22oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear deep amber body with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, wood, grapefruit, pineapple, some pine, and mango. Flavor of caramel, wood, and grapefruit with a dry finish.

Cybercat (3796) - Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Aroma is mainly fruity, mostly orange, and slightly sweet. There is also a hint of hops. It pours a clear, dark mahogany that is more brown than red and has a fairly thick pale tan head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor is quite hoppy with tones of malt and citrus and just a little bitterness - very satisfying! Texture is smooth and fizzy, leaving a nice sour citrus and hoppy finish.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Nice pour, gleaming amber with a faded tan head, nice sticky retention. Nose is more aggressively citrusy than I’d expected, blending nicely with the big sweet malts. Not as much oak as expected either. Body is fairly smooth, not quite as abundant or lively as needed for a beer this sweet to my tastes. But still, the flavors are really enjoyable, with the intense hops of the Double, along with the dry hopping, giving this a huge roasted, resinous character. Good stuff.

Bricks (690) - Delaware, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Very smooth. Very good appearance. Smells like an IPA with something else I can’t put my finger on. Great beer.

Sammy (9268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2011
Excellent hoppy beer. Pours golden with a foamy half inch of head. Citrus hop aromas. Aggressive hops that are muted by a great malting. Citrus and light fruity tastes. Oh so drinkable.The hops do act to wear down the taste buds somewhat.

22oz bottle.Pours a dark yet clear red/brown with a soapy thick white head.Nose is dank,vegetal hops with a musty oaky scent.Huge nose!Taste is crazy hops of the chalky,pine and herbal varieties.There is also a huge oak prescense on the finish that lingers.The IBU’s on this bad boy gotta be through the roof!Aggressive and tasty brew!

ekoerper (592) - Iowa, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Nose full of malt and hops. Pours deep, cloudy, opaque amber. About a half inch of head dissipated to a thin layer, some lacing. Medium-full bodied, fairly chewy, average carbonation. Flavor is malty, caramel, toffee, and the typical wallop of hops from Stone. Very smooth and drinkable, great beer.

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bombers from Capone’s, Craft Ale, and Smith’s. Pours mahigany toward deep ruby/brown with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is huge spirits, fruity, cherry, hops, peaty oaky bourbon. Tastes oaky, spirity, with a huge resiny hop flavor, and finishing cherry cognacy flavors. Very complex, and a synergistic mix of the two bastards. Very very good.

TheHopster (883) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2011
I actually did get lucky finding this due the short supply. More complex than its Bastard cousins. Deliciously addictive to sip. Loads of flavor.
