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.

22oz bomber from Top’s in Tempe, AZ. Aside from the strong desire to downvote this one due to the incredibly stupid/annoying label, this was a darn good beer! Pours clear copper with a reddish tinge and a thin but lingering light tan head. Aroma is hearty, earthy, caramel, and booze. Flavor brings lots of oak, offset by a touch of caramel malt and a good dose of spicy hops. Heat from the spice and the booze seems especially strong for an 8.5 ABV brew, which was really the only setback (other than that damn label!)

Pours a Reddish Copper Colr with a foamy tan head with nice lacing. aroma is of big hops and some malt, wiht alot of grapefruit, pine resin, and some carmel malts. flavor is of grapefruit, pine, carmel, cantelope, dark fuir, and alchool. has a medium-full body with a oily moutfeel and a bitter, long finnish. overall, a nice mix of stone arrogant bastard’s.

Suttree (5474) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Reddish copper, with a huge, off-white head. Smells pretty much like a regular Arrogant Bastard - Big piney, resiny hops and a little bit of booze. Flavor is surprisingly oaky, considering that Oaked AB is only a 3rd (?) of the mix. In fact, I would go so far as to say that oak is the dominate flavor characteristic, followed by piney hops and alcohol. Not much malt really, except to give some body, I guess.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bomber. Hazy red-brown pour with a yellowish-white head leaving moderate lace. Flowery, citrus nose. Strong resinous hops with citrus zest, medium malt body with oak, umami and caramel. Sweet and bitter early, bitter, oaky and umami late. The most palatable of all the bastards and my favorite.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Pours a deep burnt orange with a creamy dense orange head. Nose is caramel malts, peach and citrus hops, wood, earthy herbal hops, breads. Taste is a good balance of malt and caramel sweetness and hop bitterness. Solid and slight grassy hop flavor and full slick mouth feel. This is by far the best "bastard" beer i’ve had. The perfect balance of hops and caramels. Blended so well.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2011
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!
