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.

This beer pours a very deep amber almost black with a large tan head. The aromas are citrus, pine, dough, smoked malt. The mouthfeel is heavy with a stickiness and medium carbonation ending very dry and bitter with a little smoke. This was a great beer! One of the best beers I’ve had! Can’t wait to have another. Cheers!

Beautiful red-brown with medium head. Aroma mostly hops with a bit of malt. Full body, alcohol not detectable. Flavor is pretty much hops with pine flavor, with some wood and malt. Mainly bitter, not much balance. Perhaps not the most distinguished member of the Bastard family but good nonetheless.

bth122 (1293) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Poured a amber brown color, frothy full head, lacing all over the glass. The only aroma I smell is hops and lots of them. Taste is heavy bitter. Palate is med to heavy bodied. Creamy and oily texture. Long bitter finish. You taste some malt still though. This hop overload. But still good.

deep amber with an off-white head. Strong hop aroma Sweet Syrupy Start quickly transforms to intense hop bitterness. finish is extremely dry with plenty of residual bitterness. Hop Heads Rejoice! A little over the top for me. Cheers!

jrob21 (2666) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2010
A full bodied, sweet orange, and intense drink. Pours a dark orange almost brown color. Nice big frothy tan head. Mostly pine aroma with a little bit of woodiness and faint citrus. Flavor is sweet and bitter at first with a nice caramel sweetness. A little extra texture comes through which I have to attribute to the oak ageing. Finish is nicely resiny sticky pine and a little bit of grapefruit. A no nonsense full bodied and hop aggressive double west coast IPA.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2010
22 oz bottle. Pours a deep, dark amber/brown with a rich tan head. Aroma smacks you in the face with strong malt, piney hops, fruit esters and oak. Flavor is very much the same with some strong malty sweetness and nice aggressive bitterness at the end. Mouth feel is heavy body with high carbonation. Overall, it really packs a punch. Damn Good Shit!!!!!!!

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Dark amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, caramel, vanilla, and light roast. Taste of pine, tobacco, vanilla, caramel, citrus fruits, and grapefruit.

natejgood (397) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Pours a nice deep amber color with an orangish head that continues to build after pouring stops. This beer is relatively clear, but has a fair amount of sediment in it. Overwhelming aroma of rich malts, hops and pine. Bitter hops combine with slightly hoppy heavy malts for a powerful and complex flavor. The bitter hops overpower the other flavors somewhat, but this is still an enjoyable beer to drink.

joebudzjoe (667) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Draft from Ginger Man, Greenwich, CT. Amber pour with a tan head served in a snifter. A real pugnacious beer. Smokey hops hops hops. Heavy body, tough to finish, not very enjoyable.

Thanks to Blazer06 for the share. Pours dark caramel brown with a tan head. Nose is a huge malt presence with with all manner of hops: citrus, pine, and floral all play a part. Flavor has caramel, slight brandy, and more hops than Yakima Valley. Medium to full-bodied and very hot, but very nice.
