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.

Life a Rich life is a Belgian Style IPA that in thought was one of the stoopidest names ever.... Until I read on the side of the bottle that it was dedicated to a young gentleman named Rich Sheppard. It pours with an aggressive foamy bright white head. It looks translucent amber/orange... Reminds me of orange/cherry 'Jell-O' The taste isn't nearly as 'yeasty' as I expected. In fact, I wouldn't know it was a Belgian style at all init weren't on the bottle. Taste was very pine heavy, starts off extremely piney and finishes with a heavy dose of citrus, mostly orange, tangerine and Pineapple. Feel is rich and creamy. Rather light and crisp. While it is def worth seeking out. I will say a drawback for me is, the 'Soap' taste that some IPA's have. Overall, great brew by one of my fav breweries~

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.
