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.

22. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense, thick, and surging dark tan head. Plenty of spotty, stringy lace. Another nice big malty ale from Stone...the heart quickens. Big piney tangy grapefruit nose backed with tons of caramel. Yeah, these big chewy hop bomb ales are fun, and this one will be no different. Creamy medium body, approaching heavy and thick but staying just enough on the drinkable side that you can happily pour a big glass. Roasty toasty caramel and lots of pine and grapefruit on the mid-palate. Big, thick, rich, bold, and forward, with a long piney resin finish. It’s always a pleasure to drink these beers.

DuffMan (8177) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 5, 2011
Bottle, shared with Parksy and TylerDurden. Hazy orange-brown, foamy, clingy head. Intensely hoppy aroma, conifer resin and grapefruit, sweet caramel. Heaps of sweet toffee malt support a truckload of piney, citrusy hoppy goodness. Another awesome Stone brew.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - FEB 3, 2011
22oz. bottle. Nose is overt piney, dank hops, combined with dark caramel sweetness, florals and background dark citrus. Cloudy, dark amber color with a fine, lasting head, nice lacing as well. Flavor is intensely hoppy and malty, with dark sweetness and strong pine. Nicely balanced but very powerfully hopped. Luckily, this has the malt backbone to counter the hops perfectly. Well-carbonated palate, oily and hefty, body is medium-full. Very, very nice. Thanks to JB!

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Occasionally stone makes an undrinkable hop-bomb, but more often than not they get the balance right. This is one where the balance is pretty much perfect. Huge hop notes, but such a strong malt backbone that it can support all of that hoppy goodness. Really nice beer.

Hair6a11 (1428) - Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Pour is dark ruby - off white head that has average retention/lacing in this stone tulip. Terrific brew all around - Not a big arrogant bastard fan. Not a big oaked arrogant bastard fan either - doesn’t really matter, I guess. Pineapple and toffee on the nose - there’s an earthy quality to this brew that rears its head at times - Toffee and caramel, pineapple and grapefruit and a nice mesh of bitterness and sweetness - Yeah. Let’s just make this one 24/7 guys.

mar (5043) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Deep ruby pour with a cream head. Caramel, hops, thick malts, light pine, and slightly bitter. Thick on the palate, sticky malts followed by caramel, faint hops, and a slightly hot finish.

dchmela (2853) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Muddy brown pour with a thick creamy head. Big malty caramel taste with a huge citrus and woody bitterness. Huge acidic grapefruit hop aroma, resiny with touches of caramel malt. Very hop driven and awesome.

bu11zeye (12363) - 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 (4169) - 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.
