Got a couple growlers of this at the brewery, thought it'd be a good one for my first review.

A. Deep coppery brown. Very little head, leaves some lacing on the glass.

S. Floral citrus and pine, surprisingly very subdued for being double dry hopped. A nice caramel maltyness also apparent.

T. Earthy and piney upfront, mild grapefruit notes in the end accompanied by a pleasant depth of darker crystal malts. Not very bitter, perhaps even less then regular Arrogant Bastard.

M. The only category it lacks in. Mouth is thinner then one would expect, and the carbonation is very weak.

D. The relative thinness makes this ale very drinkable, more like an IPA in that sense.

Lukcy Basartd is supposed to be a 'best of three worlds' beer, gaining all the best attributes of the three other Bastard ales; Arrogant, Oaked Arrogant, and Double Bastard Ale. I cant help but think the mouth feel is throwing me off on this one, it's not in keeping the standard of the Bastard ales. If anything, I'd say it's like a thinner Arrogant bastard with more focus on aroma and less on bittering hops. Not really a bad thing, but again not in keeping. Definitely not overly impressive compared to some of the other double dry hopped ales I've had from Stone.
