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.

Deep ruby-brown with a nice lacy off-white head. Aroma strong with floral and piney hops, citrus and other ripe fruits and a backing of caramel malts. Very hoppy to the taste, with a nicely complimentary sweet malt background. Full bodied, thick, slightly harsh, intense.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 29, 2010
22oz. Pours a clear, deep ruby with a massive yellow rocky head with volcanic retention and great webby lace. Aroma is straight fresh pineapple, kumquat. Taste is 100% nutty bitter, chalky, 100+ IBUs, big Brasil nut and walnut skin, tree bark, ultra bitter dark chocolate, sweat and old strawberry hops. Pretty much a nutty hop bomb. Slight spicy alcohol. Meh.

Bomber from a store on Carlsbad Village Drive since PP was not open yet.osre is very hoppy in a floral way with hints of pine, maple, and oak.Rusty maple syrup colored with a big galss lacing yellowish beige head. Flavor is extremely bitter with background toffee. Finishes very bitter. Did the writer on the label slur his writing because of the extreme bitterness?

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2010
650 mL bottle from AJ’s in Tucson, served in a tulip. Pours clear mahogany with a medium dense head. The head fades slowly to a thin cover and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has big aromas of resin and pine, flowers and caramel, along with some fruit and a touch of oak. The flavour starts out with a touch of caramel malt sweetness but is soon eclipsed by a huge piney, resinous bitterness that persists to the finish. The finish is long and resinous hoppy bitter. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a smooth, oily texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent, well-constructed hop bomb. The malts are overpowered, but they are not neglected; everything about this brew says quality. This is not anyone’s session ale, but a fine choice for a blast of hops. 2010-12-27

nearbeer (4473) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bomber. Clear ruby-chestnut with a lasting disc of cream. Big nose of papaya, grapefruit, mango, pine straw, and light molasses. Flavor is the same huge blend, with resin and grapefruit coming to the fore more than in the aroma. A detracting menthol tone develops quite soon also. A nice touch of oak shows later. Heavy body is mostly smooth; sticky, but well dried.

I bought a bottle of this cuvee de bastard and decided to crack it open tonight. Pours a deep, dark ruby red, almost mahogany/chestnut brown color with dark golden ruby orange hues when held to a light source. 1.5 finger frothy yellowish tan head that has very good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap that coats the glass with circles and large splotches of soapy lacing. Looks great! Complex aroma with a prominent sweet citrus hop presence up front as well as some earthy pine, sweet caramel malt, oak and vanilla. I’m actually picking up notes from each individual beer used in the blend. Slightly toasted underneath with a slight biscuit character in the nose. Chewy body that’s on the fuller end with a very complex flavor profile. A blast of bitter earthy and sweet citrus hops up front that lingers throughout over the sweet malt backbone into a slightly dry warm finish. Lots of earthy pine up front as well as some citrus peel and grapefruit. I’m actually surprised how bitter this is up front even for Stone. This is countered nicely mid-palate by a sweet caramel malt character that is nice and toasty with hints of biscuit, oak and vanilla. The hops are still the prominent flavor but the malt and oak notes provide decent balance. The high ABV is well masked with only slight warmth in the finish making this beast very quaffable. This might be too bitter/hoppy for some but once again Stone has impressed me.

Tap at Stone and in bottle. Really is a meeting of all three bastards. Has the body and alcohol of the DB and the oak is a nice accompliment - perhaps held back by the enigma that is Arrogant Bastard. Loses the impact of Db whilst the vanilla from the barrel does it give it a nice roundness. Very solid.
