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.

Tap. Rating #323. Dark reddish brown with a dirty white head. Big sweet spicy hops, caramel malts, really nice. Big hop flavor, but nicely balanced with more rich maltiness. Nice stuff. (1464)

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Bomber. Pours a nice orange mahogany with a dense stand of frothy beige head. The aroma is trademark Bastard. Piney chinook hops jump into my nose immediately, followed by a little bit of citrus and a good dose of woody toasted malts. This is pretty much exactly how I imagined this smelling. The flavor is very woody, between the piney hops, toasted malts, and actual oak. Then comes an interesting fruity sweetness that I wasn’t really expecting. Cantaloupe, strawberry, maybe a little bit of mango. Caramel, toast, and wood come in the finish, which is on the bitter side. That bitterness sticks around in the mouth for a while, though it doesn’t seem as harsh as any of the individual Bastards. Pretty good beer, but does not amount to the sum of its parts.

Reddish brown pour from bottle with an off white head. Citrus and pine aroma. Taste is burnt wood, citrus, pine and caramel. Boozy finish. Solid.

bottle: tropical, citra hop arouma. floral, meadowy with grass clippings. arouma is quite amazing. Hazy dark red pour, caramel malts, crisp and bready. finishes bitter and dry with some astringency. sticky sugars hang out on the lips and tongue.

bubbleflubber (2012) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Beautiful brick pour into the glass with a 2-finger thick fluffy eggshell head that leaves slathering lace down the inside of the glass. The nose is of toasted caramel and freshly picked hops... really nice. The flavors are of light biscuit flour, sweet caramel, toast and wet tobacco leaves. The finish is peppering fresh bitter hops, with a touch of alcohol. The mouthfeel is highly complex, with sweets and bitters balancing out well in the oily, full body. Very drinkable, but also a nice "special occasion" offering that suits a Lukcy Basartd such as myself.

Bomber. A light brown head over copper. Aroma is sweet resiny action, heavy grapefruit and orange and some light/medium malt. Taste is sweet citrus hops with some bite.

On tap @ Specific Gravity, Salisbury Md-Brown pour w/a moderate head. Sweet, woodsy aroma. Earthy flavors of smoke, roasted malt, wood/oak, candied sugar, & molassis. Smooth & easy to drink. I wasn’t blown away by this one, but that may have just been me as I’ve had quite a few barrell aged beers lately. Maybe I’m just getting a little burned out on these, but this is when you see these out there, so you gotta get them now or wait til next year! This was a solid brew though, quite enjoyable!

ben4321 (4688) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 1/22/11

Aroma: Full of citrus hops (grapefruit and pineapple), resin, as well as some caramel notes
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish-brown color with a small beige head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is rather big, with medium-heavy sweetness and heavy bitterness as well
Palate: The body of this one is fairly sticky, it’s medium-full, with a lengthy and fairly dry finish to it
Overall Impression: I guess I’m the only person on earth who hasn’t tried this one yet, huh? It’s only been out for a few months, but every time it comes up in conversation the person I’m talking to looks at me like I’m telling them I haven’t tried something that has been around forever. "Seriously? You haven’t tried Lukcy Basartd yet?" Well, now I have, OK? Seriously though, I had been meaning to try it, I was just a little slower then the rest of the world to pick up a bottle. Anyway, I doubt anyone has made it this far into my review, but I did enjoy this beer quite a bit. It was worth trying for sure, and I would definitely drink it again.

Bomber graciously shared by Muenster. Well, this is exactly what I was expecting. We had just sampled the Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Grand Cru and this one really reminds me of that. This is basically a beer that tastes more like Stone than any other Stone beer before it. The malts are the most interesting part with a mix of wood, tobacco and a distinct melon flavor that I didn’t get at all in the Sierra 30th. The hops are right up front throughout, but don’t quite reach full possible Stone intensity. Interesting and tastes good.
