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.

100+ IBU

Formerly served on draft as Shark Pants.

Appearance: Gamboge/light mahogany body with a crisp ivory head.

Aroma: Orange and apples with a profound yeasty nose.

Taste: Apples, mango, grapefruit, and a deep Belgian yeast profile.

Mouthfeel: Fair carbonation with a smooth finish - I expect more from a Double IPA.

Overall: As a fan of IPAs, I was eager to try 'Live a Rich Life' - even more so when I heard it was a Belgian-style Double IPA; heaven. Try this whenever possible.
