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.

No bottle date, poured into a tulip

A- pours a slightly hazy amber color with a two-finger frothy off-white head that had great retention, leaving some lacing behind

S- citrus and tropical fruity hops up front, complimented by a honey-like sweetness. Peppery and grassy with notes of dried herbs and fresh grass. Sweet doughy malt with a hint of caramel balances it out

T- lots of fruity hops with flavors of grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, mango and papaya. The Belgian yeast gives big peppery notes with lots of herbal notes. The malt is slightly doughy, with a honey-like sweetness that compliments the fruity hop character nicely. Slightly sweet finish with more fruity hops on the linger

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a big and frothy mouthfeel, ending with a slightly warming, smooth finish

O- a fruit hop explosion that is complimented nicely by a the peppery yeast flavors. One of the better Beligan IPA's that I've tried, very good
