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.

Bomber from the Andersons in Toledo. Amber-brown pour with a medium light tan head and sheets of lacing. Aroma is butterscotch and caramel malts, tea, grassy hops, and wood. Tastes are sweet malts and burnt sugars balanced by grapefruit hops. Apricot in there somewhere. Long burnt floral bitter aftertaste. Palate is knife and fork stuff - medium to full, but chewy. Good as expected, but would need all the variations side by side to pick a favorite.

Bottle: pours dark brown with a thin frothy tan head, aroma of floral hops, taste is extremely hoppy, some maltyness, maybe a bit of the oak as well.

SrSilliGose (3270) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 24, 2010
Bottle from lagunitasfan- thanks tim! Pours a clear copper with ruby red highlights and a small frothy tan head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, tangerines, ight brandy, candied booze. Taste is oranges, sweet tangerines, light toffee, warming booze, hops cut the booze nicely. Actually like the interplay between the sharp booze and citrusy pine hops, with some tasty tangerine sweetness for good measure. Dry. Without the pungent hops, this would have been a lobsided with the booze and sweetness. Best fresh. Pretty good. Enjoyed this. Thanks tim.

23-12-10: Brune-rougeatre, avec une mousse moyennement abondante et une effervescence normale. Puissants arômes d’houblon, avec des notes fruitées et boisés. Forte amertume du début a la fin. Puissant en bouche avec de belles notes de fruits rouge et noire. Finale longue et très amer.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 This smells great. Lots of hops and some fruit. The flavor is hoppy and bitter too, but it just isn’t quite as good to my palate as the regular arrogant bastard or the double, which are cheaper too. Had again and liked equally, though a bit too sweet. 11/1/14

Pours a dark amber to brown color with two fingers of frothy white head. Smell is of very strong pine hops (strength may be due to freshness, I don’t think I’ve ever had a Bastard/Basartd that had been on the shelves as short as this one). Oak is noticeable too, and is the first noticeable quality of the taste. Plenty of hop bitterness, and a bit of fruity sweetness too, maybe from raisin and plum. I might have guessed this was an IPA if I took a slip blindfolded. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy; beer has a medium body with moderate carbonation. I preferred each of this beer’s three components on their own, but definitely give this a try if you enjoyed the others. D: 3.5 decent, maybe too sweet. slow drinker but acceptable for abv

22 oz bottle. Pours clear copper with an off-white head. Aroma is a heap of pine resin with citrus hops and some caramel poking through. Flavor is also led by resinous hops, with caramel and toasty malt flavors and a fairly strong bitterness. Maybe some oak and a bit of strawberry in there, too. Very nice.

shared bomber. pours a dark red with bright highlights and a 1 finger off white head. HUGE citrus hop notes on the nose - the dry hopping is really in your face on this one. really is like opening a bag of hops and sticking your nose in there. a touch of the oak finds its way through the hop madness as well. again over the body, the dry hopping dominates the palate (almost too much so). big citrus, dank bitter notes coat the mouth. underneath all the hops, layers of oak, dark fruit and sweet malts come through. the strength and rich fruit tones of double bastard come forward in the finish. bubblegum notes linger through as well. overall a nice blend of the bastards and it IS very arrogant.

Attractive, hazy orange brown. Thick clinginess of head. Nose of graham crackers, oak and pine, quite a scent. Creamy, small bubbly, hoppy, dry and woody, almost all at once, well blended. A bit of vanilla at the end. Very very nice.
