Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: AleWatcher on 06-03-2011

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.

"live a Rich life"

"in memory of Rich Sheppard 7/1/90-4/11/11."

BOTTLE: Courtesy of Duff27. 1 pint 6 fl oz. Brown glass. Appealing label art; classy in a Hunter S. Thompson sort of way. Branded colourful pry-off pressure cap. Bottled 02/10/14.

Reviewed live as a "Belgian style double india pale ale" because the label clearly identifies it as such. Expectations are high given the brewery and style.

Served cold, after a brief period of rest following its removal from the fridge, into a mini nonic glass. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

Reviewed in me parents' gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, CO.

HEAD: Three fingers wide. Off-white colour. Plump and soft-looking, with a smooth even consistency and a supple complexion. It's nicely creamy and thick, but could be frothier.

No lacing.

7-8+ minute retention. Pretty impressive if this beer really is 9.50% as currently listed on the site.

BODY: Clear translucent mango colour of good vibrance. Not the usual boring copper colour of most (imperial) IPAs. I'm not seeing any yeast particulate or sediment, which might be a nice touch in a purported Belgian IPA.

Appears well-carbonated. Definitely above average for the style; I'm looking forward to trying it. But it's not unique or special.

The colour is fantastic.

AROMA: Candy/Belgian candi sugar. Caramalt. Caramel sweetness. Bubblegum. Caramelized gooey orange peel. Some toffee. Sweetbread.

In short, it's sweeter than anticipated, and the candi notes dominate.

Hopwise, it's a bit limited. Sticky nectary hop character, floral notes, some pineapple (a tropical fruit note I personally dislike in beer), mango, sherbet, and overripe tangerine.

Fruity ale esters.

There is some alcohol presence lingering beneath the sweetness.

I'm not finding any real yeasty notes. A shame in a Belgian ale, especially if De Struise's yeast was used.

As it comes to temperature, I pick up on some lightly dank hop notes and some faint resins.

It's a sticky wet aroma of mild strength, and suggests an overly sweet, overripe flavour profile. I fear severe imbalance (in which the hop bitterness is too concealed by the malty sweetness) and the presence of pineapple-y hop notes - which I usually despise.

TASTE: Plenty of sweetness throughout. Sweetbread, caramel, caramalt. The candi sugar/candy character is luckily more restrained than the aromatics suggesed, but it's still problematic.

Sadly, there's no noticeable Belgian yeast character. A real shame.

As I feared, the sweetness is too much, and hides what should be the star(s) of the show - the hoppy notes. Sticky pine resin, floral hop character, off-putting warm pineapple...they're all surpressed by the unbecoming malty sweetness. The treat of the beer for me are the mango and tangerine tropical fruit notes, but unfortunately they're corrupted by the booziness that runs through the beer.

Surely this was a nicer flavour profile when the beer was fresher. As-is, 7 months after bottling, it's a syrupy, sweet, somewhat boozy, imbalanced mess. The imbalance is ruinous. Messy as it is, it does have some cohesion of flavour, though this isn't a gestalt build; the pineapple could easily be removed, resulting in a better beer, and it doesn't feel like an impenetrable whole.

Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour. Subpar amplitude of flavour.

It's complicated, poorly layered, and generally chaotic. I wouldn't call it intricate, refined, or subtle.

TEXTURE: Boozy, slightly syrupy, way too thick, smooth, and wet. Overcarbonated. Too hefty and weighty on the palate. Unnecessarily full-bodied.

In short, it's just too much on the palate, especially considering the relative lack of deep and/or intricate flavours. This bold and heavy a presence on the palate just isn't justified by the flavours that are present; there's relatively little for the texture to support.

Overall, this texture distracts from the flavours, and fails to bring out the best in the taste. Subpar execution.

OVERALL: This mishmash of Three Floyds' double IPA expertise and De Struise's Belgian yeast feels like a collision of competing brewing styles, rather than a successful holistic effort. Call it Collaboration Syndrome, but this beer just isn't working for me. It doesn't even hide its ABV well. While I'll finish the bottle alone, it will take effort. A huge disappointment considering the two breweries involved. I wouldn't recommend this to friends or trade partners. It won't impress the discerning drinker.

That said, I'd love to revisit this fresh - ideally on-draught. I worry these months of (unintended) age have been severely detrimental to the beer. Of course, Three Floyds offers no best before date on their label, so I take no blame for consuming it late.

The warm booziness is a big problem, and is made worse by the presence of off-putting warm pineapple.

Huge thanks to Duff27 for the bottle; I'm glad I got to try it!

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. (274 characters)

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. (547 characters)

maybe my least favorite beer from these guys so far, and while i can appreciate it for what it is, i think its over rated on hype alone. its overly belgian, i mean way past bubblegum and high tone fruits, its over the top with that, probably fermented in the 80 degree range or warmer, and just because it has a lot of flavor, does not make it good. its honey colored beer, nice and clear and holding on to a very lacy white head, looks nice in the glass. it smells like leftover belgian yeast, and sweet oily west coast hops. the yeast is just too much, not that there is sediment or anything, but its flavor, its run wild away from the reasonable range, and feels almost sharp as a result. the beer isnt all that dry though, which i find a little confusing. the hop profile on this is excellent, i would guess some simcoe, sticky and rich for sure. it just doesnt need this yeast intensity, it would be a far better beer as an american double ipa, with some nondescript ale yeast, rather than this white winey, taffy, even corny strain that dominates the beer. finish is long, and the alcohol cuts sharply through the oily hoppy tail end, leaving a boozy belgian tang on the tongue. i appreciate making very very bold beers, but this one never really comes together for me. that said, the rest of our tasting group enjoyed it very much, and i am thankful to thebrewo for having shared this rarity with us. (1,407 characters)

3.65/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Caramel, dark amber color, with small, light head.

Aroma: Smells of sweet oranges and citrus hop. The aroma is fairly sweet, clean, and tart, like gummi candy.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Hoppy, tangerine flavors on the tongue. The citrus has an overripe character to it, like the cloying scent of an apricot. Strong, dry, bitter hop finish with a bit of astringency/alcohol kick.

Final Word: While the sweet fruit flavors on the tongue are full and refreshing, the finish is too unbalanced and potently bitter for a typical drinker. While anyone can enjoy the flavors in the first sip, the dry, bitter, astringent finish immediately overwhelms them and defeats the subtle fruit flavors up front. As it stood, it was a beer that only hop lovers or thrill seekers could truly enjoy, but anyone else should take a pass for a more trustworthy IPA. (851 characters)

Bomber to glass..actually bottle dated but I'll be damned if I can read.

Nice copper with a frothy cap that lingers and sticks.

Nose of caramel, sourdough, lemon and pineapple.

Hops are crisp with a quick clean bitterness and plenty of pineapple.Shows a very sourdough-y malt presence. The yeast is light and doesn't ran much interference, nor does it do much to cut the massive sweetness. Alcohol is large on the finish along with some fruity banana esters and clove. Ah, there's the Belgian yeast influence...

Overall, a pretty good DIPA that just doesn't quite hit the right notes for me. There's too much sweetness and a harsh alcohol bite that makes it a nice beer to try but a beer I wouldn't clamor for again. (721 characters)

This beer pours a nice muddled copper in color with light cloudiness. It arrived with a one finger off white head which dissipated within a minute or so. It smells like an imperial version of Alpha King. It smells of light and resinous piny hops with a solid malt backbone. It tastes of sweet and resinous hops and there is little to no Belgian characteristics. Where's the yeast? It drinks medium in body and drinks decently for the abv. Its not what I wanted but its solid. The artwork is legendary, which is why they should bottle it! (537 characters)

Thanks to Marquette Nick (justanothergalen) for hooking this up at the Solar Eclipse party.

Pretty cool orange pour and 3/4" head, nice white small bubbles, really good retention. Aroma, not as massive hoppiness as I expected or hoped for, but its cool, still nice, still good, just not an American smack in the face like some FFF beers.

Still a decent amount of hops in the taste, mildly citrusy, tropical, but the malt and yeast really hit hard too. Dare I say, this is one of the most balanced, AND enjoyable beers under the ipa banner there is. Hides the alcohol well, carbonation is right on, bitterness is still pretty big, but like I said, still relatively balanced all things considered. Pretty complex, really has all the things people love about belgian yeast and American hops together. You know all those desciptors I'm talking about. Caramel, banana, clove, coriander, citrus, pine, grapefruit, etc. . .

A cool beer, but not really something I'm going to clamor for FFF to make again and again. (1,013 characters)

Another beer shared by dougofthefuture, thanks!

Cloudy amber with a nice white head. Aroma is hops first but there is a certain perfum-y-ness which is perhaps the Belgian contribution. Tastes better than it smells... very very citrus; lots of rind. Good balance of flavor and bitterness. Medium body but still crisp, especially considering the ABV. Glad to have had it. (370 characters)

A: Pours a hazy copper, dark orange in color. Nice thick head with good head retention.

S: Juicy grapefruit, orange,pine, and fresh cut apple. Some cream, soapiness, and mild alcohol heat is detectable. Smells fresh and tropical.

T: Upfront you get bready then some grapefruit, orange, pine, and hints of lemon. Didn't really get anyone of that Belgian character, perfectly okay with me.

M: Medium-full bodied, crisp.

O: A pretty solid beer, not one that I will really crave however. (487 characters)

3.77/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear golden-amber with a .5 finger of bubbly off-white colored head on top. Lots of bubble action going on in the body. Love the color and the clean body is very impressive.

S: So beautifully hoppy -- citrusy and sharp. I'm even more so impressed with the strong hoppy smell because this beer has about six months on it. So, very nice. Not as strong as Zombie Dust. I can't smell yeasty breadiness that usually comes with these types of beers, but that's okay. There is some caramel malts notes.

T: Okay -- I can taste the age more than I can smell it, but it's still good. However, where I smelled citrus I'm tasting a more earthy, biscuit flavor. The hops are definitely making way for more malts in the taste of the brew. Just okay for me, but -- again -- this beer isn't super fresh. Some warmness from the alcohol.

M: Medium to heavy body. Nice carbonation. Some good chewiness that brings out the malt. Not a bad oily feel. Just nothing great here.

O: Appearance and Smell stands out above all. Taste is a bit of a let down -- but that does carry the caveat that this beer has about six months on it. A fresh beer might taste differently. I'm actually a little surprised there isn't more of a belgian ale taste. That's kind of what I was looking for, but this looks and tastes like a straight DIPA. Overall, a good beer, but not one of the best of its kind. (1,379 characters)

At Three Floyd's with Sean and Mike... Dark copper orange with an awesome bright white head, great lacing... Aroma of fruit, oranges, a little belgian yeast, ok... The taste is a little to solvent hoppy on the front but its fruity and hides the 9% really well (259 characters)

From notes on 3/25/14

Glass on tap at the brewery. Cloudy pour with ample head. Sweet aroma with some citrus notes. First thing I noticed about the taste was how much it reminded me of pineapple. tasted almost like those canned ringed pineapples you can buy in the store. After getting used to this flavor, I was able to taste some bitterness and malt character. Interesting drink. (382 characters)

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy copper hue with a nice one finger head that fades to leave a light thin blanket.

S - Aromas of dank hops, started off nice and tropical then became mostly malts, doh!

T - Taste is mostly malts, caramel, light creamy flavour, older hops, bitter pine resin, light orange. Light fruity, very bitter finish.

M - Mouthfeel is is nice, alcohol is hidden well.

O - Overall this was a solid dipa, just on the older side, was probably once awesome. (528 characters)

Bang on DIPA. Yeast flavour exceeds the malt backing, well balanced. Intensive IBU and hop flavour. Great drinkability for a DIPA. Better than average. Big retained head. Above average mouthfeel.Fruity, piney, a little caramel.Very clean.Bottle from Steven. (257 characters)

Bottle poured into a FFF tulip

A - A reddish copper with a one finger slightly dirty white head. Slightly reflective and very clean looking

S - Tropical, sweet fruit in the nose. Pineapple and tangerine dominate the sweet nose. There is nice banana presence that lies underneath in the nose and gives hints of the Belgian yeast strand. overall, the nose is very sweet smelling as well.

T - At first, I get a slight pine hop presence that hangs on for a second before a sweeter pineapple and tangerine come through. There is just enough hop in here to prevent it from being cloying or too sweet. In the finish, there is a slight bitter kick that comes through with a hint of banana. Not as Belgiany on the flavor as I would expect

MF - Medium body with light carbonation. A bit syrupy as well which leaves a slight stickiness.

O - What happens if you take Dreadnaught and brew it with Belgian yeast? You get this beer. Solid DIPA. However, I was hoping for the Belgian aspects to shine through a bit more instead of playing such a small role. (1,046 characters)

Bomber poured into nonic.

A: Pours a mild copper color with near 2 fingers of frothy white head that has long retention and leaves a good amount of lacing.
S: I get the Belgian style aroma up front, lots of cloves, coriander, mixed spices/herbs. There's a slight hop background, with a malt compliment.
T: Very similar to aroma, I get the Belgian themed flavors on the front end. The hops have more of a presence I'm the flavor, bringing some citrus and pine into the mix.
M: Carbed well, leaves a slightly dry after taste.
O: A very interesting and unique offering from the Floyd family. I enjoyed this bomber, but it's not necessarily the beer I'd go for when craving a hoppy brew. Balance leans strongly towards the herbals and pine throughout, especially when it warms up a bit. (788 characters)

Enjoyed on-tap @ Three Floyds in Munster, IN for $8. Tapped into a 12+ oz Tulip Glass and was not able to see the Tap Handle. This beer was dedicated to a former employee @ FFF and proceeds went to his family. Drinking beer+Charity, Awesome!

Aroma- Citrus hops and spices are very dominant here. A bit of dry-hopping was present and a ton of alcohol.

Appearance- Received with a 1 finger head that stay for a second or two... Has a hazy, dark orange color body and leaves minimal lacing behind on the glass.

Flavor- Starts with huge earthy/citrus hops and then has a medium grapefruit taste with a superfruit background. Lots of citrus/fruit flavors going on here. Sort of different for an IPA but this is alright.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Huge Carbonation, and doesn't leave much on the palate.

Overall Impression- Very nice, complexed beer but for a Belgian IPA, not too impressive. I'm starting to like how much complexity and different flavors/ingredients they bring to each and every drink. This one was much harder to drink but still thought it was a good brew! VERY limited batch so get your hands on it if you can. (1,131 characters)

A- Pours a hazy and luminescent orange liquid with a thin off-white head.

S- Caramel, pine, citrus, alcohol, and a definite Belgian kick. A bit odd.

T- Pine, citrus, caramel and some breadiness with a definite Belgian aspect.

M- The carbonation is nice and spicy with contrasts nicely with the creamy body.

O- A tasty take on the style. The alcohol is fairly well hidden. Tasty. (382 characters)

Bottled 2/10/14, drank 5/30/14, thanks to crapturds (reddit).

pours a nice creamy semi thick 1/2 finger head nice lacing, hazy dark reddish chestnut color.

Nose big sweet candy, little pineapple and tropical notes, into caramel toffee, citrus candied orange peel, spicy hops, chewy little early and fruity, dank and resinous, little pine too.

Taste starts sweet and creamy, little caramel and toffee, fairly sweet. Big citrus and candied orange peel, dank resinous and piney, earthy, little spicy, little fruity. Flashes of like pineapple and tropical notes but very faded. hint of warming estery booze. Finish attempts to dry but stays sticky and syrupy, more candy and little booze, spicy briny resinous hops lingering.

Mouth is med to heavier bod, syrupy and a bit creamy, creamy nice carb, earning booze.

Overall seems like it was much better when fresh, but lost some character, (891 characters)

Blind Review.

Appearance: Perfectly clear burnt orange/dark gold. Head is off-white with a loose bubble structure. Moderate retention leaves a small soapy cap with some lacing. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Fruity. Some apple and bubblegum. A touch of Belgian yeast. Some vague almost light-clove spice coupled with a mild peppery note. Malt base is relatively light with a hint of caramelized malt sweetness. A biscuity undertone. Grapefruit flesh with a touch of juice and pith. Slight creeping woody element. Some hop spiciness with a very mild touch of alcohol in the back.

Taste: Grapefruit and fruity esters. Belgian yeast influence. Mildly spicy hop. Some peppery spice as well. Slightly pithy. Very mild bitterness hits to citrus oil. Old orange and pith. Malt backbone is slightly bready offering up some slight sweetness and a compliment to a mild hop profile. Slightly earthy with a flavor that reminds of of hop pellets. Leafy hops. Warming ups the esters and the lingering bitterness. Warming makes me think there's no Belgian yeast and just a super earthy and herbal hop.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate carbonation. Pretty standard stuff. Mild astringency.

Overall: I'd drink it again but that's as much as I can say. (1,257 characters)

Served in a Three Floyds glass because I can. At the time of this review, this is #1 on the "Top Beers - Belgian IPA" list on beeradvocate.com.

Beer is orangish and hazy with a one finger white head, small bubbles, moderate retention, some lacing, moderate to low carbonation.

Aroma is mildly floral, a little hoppy, some yeast, estery.

Beer is not as hoppy as I hoped but it is fine, mild to moderately hoppy Belgian amber, a little grassy with a nice finish, great yeast character, easy drinking, I'd have it again. (520 characters)

Shark Pants

Served in tulip at Three Floyds on June 13, 2011. 

A: Pours mostly clear pale amber with no obvious effervescence. White head collapses quickly, but leaves sticky sheets of lacing on sides of tulip. 

S: Juicy, fresh, pungent hops. Overripe peaches, nectarines, sweet tarts. A little spiciness. Malts? Forget about it! Palate, prepare for utter destruction. 

T: Some sweet, steely caramel malts on front end of palate. Unsurprisingly, fruity/hoppy notes strike quickly and hard, reminding me of a triple IPA (think Double Crooked Tree), something I've described previously as hop detergent or hop liqueur. Not as bitter as I expected, but make no mistake, this bad boy is hop-forward.  Some spiciness and earthy notes, too. 

M: Medium-heavy body and medium carbonation. Super creamy. Bubbles fill mouth. 

O: I'm stunned this is only 8.5 abv. It is a leviathan of a beer. Little beers that drink like bigger beers always rate well for me, but this is almost too much. Still, really well done, although drinkability is definitely below average.  (1,067 characters)

Pours a cooper sheen with a generous dense whitish merengue head. One can easily agitate a head anytime while spending time with this.

Aroma leads with a pink grapefruit cocktail and tangerine. Fruity with a standout hop.

Initial taste I get a peppery hop sensation that goes to the back of the palate. Semi-sweet fruit then noticeable upfront laying nicely on the tongue with a dense earthy hop cone and resinous pine. Nice grapefruit pith/hop bitterness that is dry. Alcohol noted in a sense comparable to that of a London dry gin-no lime. A most contemplatable quaff if ever I had one.

Spicy pepper hop lingers on the palate as the sweetness of the malt helps to adhere as such. Medium to full bodied that is somewhat creamy. Clean and dry finish. A definite sipper, not a ZD cuuurusher!!!

I was able to score only two of these bad boys and I want to make the best of it and take my time. Overall a fine Belgium IPA. (923 characters)
