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.

3.63/5  rDev -15%
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.

Serving type: on-tap
