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.

The High hop content predominates this beer, as with others of the Bastart series. Underneath the hops there is a mix of flavors which includes caramel, vanilla, cantaloupe, and some dark fruits.

picknbrew (196) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2011
22 oz. Thanks to dl. Appearance- Hazy, deep amber, frothy head, Aroma- Citrus, grapefruit, piney with plenty of caramel poking through. Taste- Well balanced oakiness that doesn’t overwhelm, sweet caramel up front with some resiny hop flavor. Aggressive bitterness. Palate-Full sticky mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Overall- Although each component of this beer is bold in its own right, it all seems to blend in well and create a very drinkable beer.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2010
This pours a dark ruby with a very full creamy and thick head leaving beautiful lacing behind on the glass. The aroma has a strong piney character, citrus fruits like grapefruit, maybe a touch of mangoe, and soft sweet caramel malts and a bit of chocolate in the nose as well. Mouthfeel is farily oily and coats the mouth well. The taste is complex with sweet chocolate and caramel malts. The pine and sweet citrus comes through nicely followed by a strong bitter and dry finish. The bitterness can be felt long after the finish.

Hop bomb personified. Sticky sweet goes right to harsh resinous hops in the best possible way. Balance be damned!

Pours a deep ruby brown with frothy one finger head. Aroma is caramel malt and drak fruit. Taste is a blend if the caramel malt, citrus hoppiness, and a bit of raisin. Great lacing and mouthfeel. One of the more enjoyable brews i have tasted in a while.
