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 Alewith 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.

Tap. Rating #323. Dark reddish brown with a dirty white head. Big sweet spicy hops, caramel malts, really nice. Big hop flavor, but nicely balanced with more rich maltiness. Nice stuff. (1464)

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Bomber. Pours a nice orange mahogany with a dense stand of frothy beige head. The aroma is trademark Bastard. Piney chinook hops jump into my nose immediately, followed by a little bit of citrus and a good dose of woody toasted malts. This is pretty much exactly how I imagined this smelling. The flavor is very woody, between the piney hops, toasted malts, and actual oak. Then comes an interesting fruity sweetness that I wasnt really expecting. Cantaloupe, strawberry, maybe a little bit of mango. Caramel, toast, and wood come in the finish, which is on the bitter side. That bitterness sticks around in the mouth for a while, though it doesnt seem as harsh as any of the individual Bastards. Pretty good beer, but does not amount to the sum of its parts.

bubbleflubber (2208) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Beautiful brick pour into the glass with a 2-finger thick fluffy eggshell head that leaves slathering lace down the inside of the glass. The nose is of toasted caramel and freshly picked hops... really nice. The flavors are of light biscuit flour, sweet caramel, toast and wet tobacco leaves. The finish is peppering fresh bitter hops, with a touch of alcohol. The mouthfeel is highly complex, with sweets and bitters balancing out well in the oily, full body. Very drinkable, but also a nice "special occasion" offering that suits a Lukcy Basartd such as myself.

Bomber. A light brown head over copper. Aroma is sweet resiny action, heavy grapefruit and orange and some light/medium malt. Taste is sweet citrus hops with some bite.
