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.

A: Cloudy deep golden honey color. Forms a large white head that has some pretty good retention. Leaves some moderate lacing on the way down.

S: Aromatic and hoppy with lots of citrus and tropical fruit. Orange, mango, pineapple and a bit of spice. This one has a regular old fruit salad going on with it.

T: The taste is very nice. Much better than I expected. Again there are lots of citrus hops along with a bunch of fruit. Orange dominates, but it is accented by notes of tropical fruit and mango. There is a touch of Belgian yeasty spice, but it is more of a compliment to the fruit and hops than a main character. Finishes with a touch of pine and a bit of alcohol.

M: Medium bodied. Carbonation is approaching the heavy side of things, but this one is not at all over-carbonated. Mild bitterness. A bit of alcoholic heat on the finish.

O: Picked this one up on a whim at DLD and now I'm wishing I picked up a few more. This is an excellent beer and really was much better than I was expecting it to be. Paired it with some charcuterie from Smoking Goose and it couldn't have complemented it any better. Fruity, juicy, and hoppy, make this one a very easy drinker.
