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.

On tap at Prairie Moon in Evanston - July 12. The following day I stopped in for lunch and apparently killed the keg. Sorry everyone. Looks like the only three places that ever got this were the tap room at FFF, the Hopleaf and Prairie Moon. I guess I'm lucky.

APPEARANCE: Medium copper in color. Not a ton of lacing, but a nice, thick and fluffy white head rested on top. A very pretty and bright looking beer.

SMELL: Lots of citrus in the nose especially lemon. This one was certainly a sniffer as I kept sticking my nose back in the glass throughout the experience.

TASTE: Malty, sweet, a touch smoky and a whole lot of citrus. Again, the lemon flavor was strong, but some subtle pine and grapefruit was also noticeable.

MOUTHFEEL: The Shark Pants seems sticky at first, but it is relatively dry and not mouthcoating at all. A very well carbonated beer as well.

OVERALL: My notes just say "really good". And after having the good fortune to try this a second time, I have to agree with my initial assessment. It is a really good beer. I hope there's some left out there for a few more of you BAs to try.

Serving type: on-tap
