Notes/Commercial Description:
A collaboration/dedication ale brewed with our friend Urbain from the Belgian brewery De Struise, this intense Belgian-style double IPA was fermented with Urbain's special yeast and then an amazing amount of hops were added. This beer was brewed in loving memory of a former employee, Rich Sheppard, who passed away on 4.11.11. Art by Tommy Borst. Try this beer and enjoy the Rich life.

Formerly served on draft as Shark Pants.

4.53/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

My purposely vigorous pour gets me an inch and a half of wavy yellow bread head. Tons of sticky lace is left behind as the head recedes oh so slowly. Body is a murky amber orange. Very appropriate for the style in terms of looks.

Nose is a fragrant mix of bready sweet malts supported buy fruity and citrus surrounded hops. Really nice and well presented from a smell standpoint. Very appetizing.

The first sip brings a pillowy soft body that really hugs the palate. Such a nice balance of hops and malts are a perfect marriage of drinkability. Starts with fruit bread sweetness that is light and crisp. This is made to be not to heavy by the balance of hops. These hops dry out the sweetness and add a very well needed bitterness that hangs on through the finish of this brew.

The flavors really ride a roller coaster on the taste buds and it is a fun ride.

Mouthfeel is dry and crisp with a sweet cracker finish. This is a wonderful beer that I wish I had more easy access to. I still think this is a bit of a misunderstood style for most of the hop heads out there.
