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.

Took me forfuckingever to find this beer. Draft at Proof. Deep amber pour with a tan head that laces all the way down. Aroma of sweet roasted caramel malts, light bread and wood, earthy and pine hops. Flavor had more of a dominant barrel vanilla and wood character with more smooth creamy caramel malts, notes of wood vanilla, earthy piney hops. Booze very well hidden and a long bitter finish. Damn good beer.

kajser27 (111) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 31, 2015
Ruby to brown colored, very nice but small beige head. Aroma is of caramel and toffee and citrus to pine hops with some resin qualities. Taste moderate sweet caramel malts, biscuit, bit of toffee, sticky brown candied sugar, a bit woody, lots of pine, less so with citrus, some floral, some resin. Medium to heavy on the bitterness and dry finish. Weaker side of full bodied, oily. Excellent stuff!

Loved reading the label. However i felt a bit let down by the drinking experience. Was expecting something...different. Really didn’t set itself apart from the other Bastards. May have been my least favorite from the box set, definitely the most disappointing.

Koskela (336) - Marysville, California, USA - MAR 22, 2015
A deep maltieness and hint of tart with wood come from this clearish reddish brew with an offwhite head. The taste is sweetish with oak and bitterness in the aftertaste. This lightish medium bodied brew has good carb. And is well balanced and worth the try. Has a ver slight warming feelin from the alcohol.

Shag (2649) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 22, 2015
A deep copper color with a beige head. The aroma contains some caramel, citrus, toasted bread, and chocolate. The flavor is bitter with a bit malty profile existing on it. It contains some bitter notes with chocolate, toffee, citrus, and alcohol. How is this beer ANY different than Arrogant Bastard. Its like holy crap Im whisked away to 2001 and me getting into craft beer. Not a bad thing. Overall this is basically a tweek on a classic. Good.

Deep copper pour with a sudsy head. Smells like a bastard. Tastes like a bastard. Makes me feel like a bastard. Lukcy to snag this one, definitely a fan.

Golden hazy thin rimming white head; aroma is piney hops; Flava is sweet sugary with distinct hop character; feels silky nice; finishes dry bitter

CacheManyHose (310) - HONG KONG - MAR 7, 2015
Clear ruby-brown, creamy fizzy beige head, watery legs. Looks, smells and tastes a lot like the Tuatara Double Trouble - drank both past their sell-by date and wonder if that's the reason for it. Aroma is overripe pear, sweet bready malt, toffee, maple syrup, grassy resinous piney hop. Tastes of sweet crisp malt, toffee, dry bitter hop, pine, spice, very light pepper, lemon. Body is bitter, a bit of slickness and spice, dry fluffy finish. A little musty (due to its age?) but tasty.

HKdIPA (365) - HONG KONG - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle from QClub at home (best before Jan 1, 2015 so may be a bit not fresh). Translucent copper pour like the others in the bastard series - a bit lighter. Aroma is super resinous hops - like other very hopped SD IPAs. Tastes dank and juicy - over ripe fruit (but not raisiny), but that could be due to it being past drink by date. Very bitter but with strong malty backing. A bit boozy. Tastes very similar to Tuatara Double Trouble - big big hops of all flavors (resin, ripe stone fruit, citrus), lots of malt and booze. Would be great to try fresh but this is good as is. Lasting booziness.

Bottle pour at home split, dark amber pour, biter spice aroma, very slight oak kind of sweet taste. Enjoyed this blend.
