Stone Lukcy Basartd

Type: Ale
Origin: Escondido, California
Price: $5.99 per 22 oz

This is a limited edition release from Stone to commemorate the 13th anniversary of Arrogant Bastard. It is created by combining an unclassified amount of Arrogant Bartard, Double Arrogant Bastard and Oaked Arrogant Bastard. I used to not be a fan of Arrogant Bastard, and I finally had it again last weekend at the Brewery and surprisingly enjoyed it. I think my palate is changing a bit since starting this site. This combination of the three is very interesting. There is a good hop balance, but it seems a bit subdued from the three beers on their own. Popping through the hops is a really nice cherry flavor, matching the perfect deep red color. This is definitely a very volatile beer that has a similar warming quality to bourbon. Cheeky Bastards.
