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.

Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of thome50. Pours a cloudy opaque amber with an off-white head. Medicinal, slightly skunky hop presence. Medium body, very typical US hop bill with biscuit and toffee and then a solid dose of hops, but somewhat muddled and never crisp. Ends bitter though. I suspect a not overly fresh bottle. 270812
