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.

Appearance was a reddish amber color. Not much of a nose on this. Taste was straight up bitter. I couldn't detect any real hops, just pure bitterness. Very dry with almost no sweetness. The opposite of a juicy IPA. I really wanted to love this beer but it fell short for me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured a hazy amber/orange with a light sticky off white head.

The smell was sweet and a bit belgiany with heavy yeast notes, just a touch of light citrus and pine from the hops.

The flavor was dominated by sweet caramel malts, a bit of belgian spices come through along with a touch of citrus hops, but overall its very sweet with just a mild bit of bitterness that never gets it close to balance.

The mouthfeel is a bit thick and oily.

I didn't hate it, but struggled with the sweetness, to boozy and rich for a Belgian IPA, needs more hops.
