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.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - FEB 7, 2011
im not sure if im understanding the definition of an "american strong ale" compared to an imperial ipa, caused this tasted like a straight forward dipa to me, west coast hop bomb to be sure, citrusy and flowery, no real malt signature at all, you know what to expect from stone at this point, more of a variation on a theme.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Poured a copper reddish brown with beautiful off white head. Aroma tons of fresh hops caramel and pine. Taste was extremely bitter with a hint of oak, caramel, burnt toast, and biscuits.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Bomber shared at the Black Friday tasting. Pours clear dark amber with a small head. The nose is hop oil, citrus and caramel. The taste is grapefruit, caramel, ripe citrus and pine. Medium bodied. Nice IPA.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Bomber from Binny’s Niles. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Aromas of sweet malts, toffee, oak, vanilla, piney hops, and some dark fruits. Flavors of bread, caramel malts, toffee, bitter hops, some light pine and citrus, bit of wood. Nice mouthfeel and carbonation. Nothing that screams this is awesome, but another solid brew as you would expect from Stone.

brigg (612) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 5, 2011
(bottle) A dark ruby-mahogany color with a thin tan head. Aroma is very hoppy with wonderful floral and sweet fruit notes (peach, strawberry, cherries) and wood. Full-bodied, soft carbonation, slightly sticky. The alcohol is more prominent and warming than I expected from the ABV. Moderately sweet caramel-malt flavor, giving way to the hop bitterness. which has a heavy grapefruit character, and woody notes. A lot of fun to sip on.

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 (9505) - 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) - Suburbia, 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 (1575) - 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 (1476) - 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.
