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.

had a draft of this one at the Map Room when it was called Shark Pants, with my main man on Pitchfork weekend...

a: served in a nice tulip glass, shark pants is a hazy orange in color, capped with a creamy white layer of carbonation, dense and lasting

s: a combination of glorious tropical hops and a lovely spice profile from the belgian yeast that brings sweet esters and hints of clove and bubblegum, cleanly sweet pale malt structure, lots of pungent fruit - pineapple, fresh citrus, tangerine, mango...really taken in by this one

m: carbonation moderate-high, lively and smooth, body on the lighter side of medium

t: awesome stuff here - loads of vivid tropical fruits via a generous hop bill...pineapple, tangerine and orange zest, mango, and a lovely delicate spice profile from the yeast, hop and yeast mix in and out with waves of flavor atop a pale malt backbone, finishing nicely bitter and clean

o: no surprises here - exceptional
