Pours a clear, rustic orange with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. No carbonation.
Smells of a wonderful combination of malt and hope of pine and fruit.
Tastes wonderful. A wonderful combo of hop, and malt, in which the yeast brings all together. A medium mouthfeel which is perfect. Another awesome FFF offering!

On tap at the Three Floyds brewpub, poured into a tulip.

A - Dark cloudy orange in color with a white head. Head sticks to the side as it dissipates.

S - Has the might as well be trademarked 3 Floyds hop profile. Sweetness comes along for the ride as well and gives a nice ipa smell. Little light in the nose though, nothing that will overpower.

T - Taste however is really amazing. Hops hit you front and center with a dry aftertaste coming through, but keeping some citrus of the hops. Makes a very drinkable ipa. As it warms, little funk comes out from that yeast. For an 8.7% ipa this has an amazing taste that makes it very drinkable. Many great flavors both sweet, citrus, bitter, and funky in this.

M - Little bitter at first and then smooths out to a nice little taste film along the cheeks. Nice coating ipa.

O - Delicious beer. Well balanced and packed with flavor. Could drink plenty of this beer for sure.

I have been holding onto a bottle of Live a Rich Life for at least a year...waiting for the right moment to pop it...well Father's Day is as good as any. The beer poured a nice clear copper with 1/2 finger thick head that is leaving a nice lace. I left a heal in the bottle to keep the sediment from getting into my tulip glass. The scent includes Belgium malt and fresh hops that provide citrus, slight pine and some floral tones. The taste briefly bitter, then a nice sweet malt comes to the rescue to balance the beer...settling into a smooth slightly bitter, peppery dry finish. The mouthfeel is full in body with decent carbonation. Overall this is an excellent beer and falls in line with all the really awesome small batch beers that 3F brews.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottleneck says Bottled On 02-10-16.

A- Pours a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains very well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves thick solid ring behind.

S- Huge pineapple aroma is quite inviting.

T- Signature FFF house yeast character with a great punch of citrusy, resinous hops. Plenty of malt sweetness to balance out the hop flavor and the bitterness is not quite as intense as expected. Alcohol is superbly well hidden. The little bit of Belgian yeast presence that's there accentuates the hops' fruit character.

M- Somewhat sharp from the hops and even a bit sticky from the malt and residual sugars. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- FFF may be a one-trick pony but it happens to be a trick I'm complacent with revisiting again and again and again. So incredibly drinkable for the ABV and bursting with tasty hop goodness. The Belgian aspect is kind of lost on me here but I'm not deducting points simply because of how great the beer is regardless of whatever style in which it's being classified.

22 oz bottle I picked up at DLD 2012, no bottled on date, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a clear reddish/orange color, topped with a finger of creamy tan head that recedes to a ring around the edges, leaves good lacing.

S- Oh man, wonderful hop aroma, huge vibrant citrus, mango, grapefruit, orange, big yeasty background, subtle spiciness and sweet malts.

T- Follows the nose with huge tropical fruits, pine and resin, floral as well, seriously the hops on this beer are excellent, has a smooth Belgian yeast flavor towards the end and some spice. Light malts, some slight alcohol warmth.

M- Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, has a smooth, very creamy feel, dry finish.

O- This is an incredible beer, really blends the glory of American hops with Belgian yeast in a great way, can we get this in six packs?

With their new found love affair with Belgian-style ales and their aggressive reputation with hops, the fusion has to leave the taste buds bewildered and smitten, right?

The tulip is delivered to the table, back lit from the window the beer gloats a light caramel hue with lightly hazed orange shades toward the center. Capped with a fluffed white foam, the beer seems as proud as the pretty girl in her prom dress. The expected stellar lace and retention are all delivered as the beer leaves the glass much faster than it should.

Very bright and juicy aromas of honey-dipped citrus and tropical fruits invade the olfactories with stealth-like precision of peppery spice, mint, and pine needles to complement. Mouthwatering and supremely appetizing, a notion of freshly mulled herbs, grasses, and grapefruit swirl to a complex and seductive scent.

Flavors give everything that well-hopped Three Floyds beers do, but with extra spiciness from yeast and estery fruit flavors to accent those of their vibrant hops- it's a carnival ride for the taste buds. Ruby red grapefruit pulp, plump tangerines, pineapple juice, lemon zest, and pureed mangoes, apricots, and papaya are just a preview of the fruit coctail and fruit punch sweet acidity that's sure to cure scurvy. The unique yeast give a fruity boost to the hop fruitiness while also complementing the balance with white pepper, coriander, and basil with only a small hint of detergent. The supple malt character seems thinner than caramel and nearly seems of honey as the floral hop and fruit character informs the light sweetness of malt presence.

The more-than-sufficient carbonation allows the sweetness to bounce off of the tongue and chaperones the fruit and spices into a light powdery evaporation of minty alcohol warmth, resin dryness, fruit acidity, and spicy pang to finish. A pleasant and lingering aftertaste of citrusty bitterness cuts through the thirst and evokes a return to the glass much sooner than it should.

A lot of the flavors and textures that I love so much about Dreadnaught manifests themselves here. But where Dreadnaught is focused on the dialogue of hops and malt, this more complex and characterful version is reinforced with the yeasty spice and estery fruits from Belgian influences to show artistry in recipe formulation and perfection in brewing execution.

a crisp, clean looking amber pour with a perfect 2 fingers of bright white head, great retention and ridiculous amounts of lacing. smells hoppy, sweet, and spicy. grassy and pine smells come out of the hops, a slightly floral scent as well. smells of honey, and a bit of spicyness coming from either the yeast or the hops as well. bitter up front with a nice soapy pine taste, sweetness of honey, slightly bready.. this beer is delicious, and has a bit of every one of my favorite aspects.

medium body with a nice amount of carbonation which helps the spicyness stand out in the finish. slightly creamy on lips and has a nice alcohol warmth to it as well.

this is a SOLID ipa. not getting much of the belgian flavors, but maybe it's because it's so hopped up and still fairly fresh that the hops take over the majority of it. don't get me wrong, it's not a hop bomb.. they're very well balanced and blend in perfectly with the rest of the beers' features. pick this one up for sure if you see it.

Wow what a treat. Drank it this weekend and it was bottled in late February. Super fresh. Pours a beautiful dark orange. Big white head and some great lacing. Absolutely lovely taste. Malty sweetness but massive hop bitterness, grapefruit, citrusy, a little bit of alcohol can be detected. SUPER double IPA in my opinion.

On tap at Holy Grale in Louisville, poured into a snifter

a: pours a hazy amber with 2 finger white head with good retention and leaves some spotty lacing

S: dominated by  orange citrus, some pine, a hint of malt and Belgian yeast

T: orange and lemon  citrus hops, a small amount of malty sweetness and some nice fruitiness from the Belgian yeast, maybe a hint of bubblegum

MF: medium body, moderate carbonation, hoppy bitterness lingers on the palate for a while

O: Quite hop forward but contrasted nicely by some malty sweetness and fruitiness from the Belgian yeast, which adds a real nice touch. The alcohol is very well hidden. This beer has appeared twice in Louisville and I've been very lucky to have multiple pours of it both times. I would say it's a must try if you have the chance.

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

On tap at Three Floyds last weekend. Served in a tulip.

Pours a hazed light orange color with a good white head and a pretty good amount of lacing on the way down. The nose is an explosion of hops and Belgian yeast. Really fruity with a bit of spice. Lots of citrus and a nice earthy undertone. Pine there as well. Some malt in the background.

The flavor brings quite a bit of Belgian yeast, especially as it warms. Nice combination of floral, citrus, and piney hops. Everything there plays really well with the yeast. Medium body and good carbonation. Bitter in the finish. Quite bitter. This is one of the best, if not the best, Belgian IPAs I've ever had.

On-tap at Tribes Alehouse 8/10/2011. Poured into an 8 oz snifter.

I've been lucky enough to run into this beer three different times and this was quite possibly the last keg of this still hanging around (tapped out at FFF over 2 months ago) so I had a few glasses and decided to review.

A- Pours a semi-hazy amber/orange color with a solid finger and a half of white head. Head sticks around for a while and leaves great lacing down the glass.

S- Fantastic notes of tropical fruit combined with citrus notes. Some Belgian characteristics also make their way through. Reminds me somewhat of Dreadnaught with a twist.

T- Lots of tropical fruit and juicy citrus notes up front balanced out by a solid caramel backbone. Near the end the yeast kicks in, helping to balance things further, keeping the hop notes in check with some slight clove and spice. Great overall balance and taste.

M- Solid medium body with ample carbonation. Fits the style perfect and makes it easy to drink.

O- Glad I have had the opportunity to try this quite a few times, definitely a treat.This beer is driven by the classic FFF hop profile balanced out with a solid caramel backbone and the hints of Belgian yeast which make it unique from the other DIPAs FFF makes. Above all else is the great cause this beer supports. Nothing like giving back to help out your favorite brewery.

Poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.

A - 4.5 - Poured a nice dark honey gold, slightly unfiltered cloudiness. Nonexistent head potential, retention or lacing.
S - 3.75 - Lower rating on the smell. Had the nice bright bouquet of oranges, mango, hops and grapefruit I expected, but also a TON of not so welcome malt. Honestly thought I had bought an old beer at first (date was smudged)
T - 4.75 - The belgian styling makes the taste absolutely stellar. Has the big, full on hop profile you'd expect with a decent amount of sweetness and a sharp, bitter biting end, but it finishes clean, crisp and instantly. The sweetness doesn't make it syrupy and the bitterness doesn't linger. It finishes sharp and clean, making it a powerful, yet thirst-quenching DIPA.
F - Light bodied, very thin to me, but this works great with its clean and thirst quenching qualities.
O - 4.75 - What a damned fine brew, one of the better DIPA's I've had in a long time. Highly recommended!

On tap at Prairie Moon in Evanston - July 12. The following day I stopped in for lunch and apparently killed the keg. Sorry everyone. Looks like the only three places that ever got this were the tap room at FFF, the Hopleaf and Prairie Moon. I guess I'm lucky.

APPEARANCE: Medium copper in color. Not a ton of lacing, but a nice, thick and fluffy white head rested on top. A very pretty and bright looking beer.

SMELL: Lots of citrus in the nose especially lemon. This one was certainly a sniffer as I kept sticking my nose back in the glass throughout the experience.

TASTE: Malty, sweet, a touch smoky and a whole lot of citrus. Again, the lemon flavor was strong, but some subtle pine and grapefruit was also noticeable.

MOUTHFEEL: The Shark Pants seems sticky at first, but it is relatively dry and not mouthcoating at all. A very well carbonated beer as well.

OVERALL: My notes just say "really good". And after having the good fortune to try this a second time, I have to agree with my initial assessment. It is a really good beer. I hope there's some left out there for a few more of you BAs to try.

Thanks bstyle!
22 oz bottle, dated 2/17/14, poured into a tulip

A- Clear bright orange/copper color with a three finger white head.

S- Tropical fruits, pine, citrus, grapefruit, fruity Belgian yeast, smells great!

T- Bitter hoppy finish is the first thing that jumps out at me, getting some tropical hops, citrus, peppercorns, pine, slightly dank, some sweet caramel malts, finish is very bitter. Great balance of flavor.

M- Smooth, crisp, medium body.

O- An awesome bitter IPA with a since Belgian style twist. Very enjoyable, really hope to get this again.

Chilled bottle into a glass, from lurchingbeast. Thanks, Frank!

I had the (dis)pleasure of trying this as a bottle of Struise's Shark Pants, courtesy of alfrantzell. I'm sure it was old, and it was Struise, but it tasted pretty awful. So I was apprehensive about this one.

A: Pours a clear, reddish copper body with a finger of well-retaining off-white head. Hop oils create a sticky swath of lace that coats the glass as the beer diminishes in my glass. A moderate collar and a broken film cap the brew. Quite nice.

S: Lemon peel, mango, with a wet pine needle backing and pale malt sweetness. I don't pick up much of what could be Belgian yeast -- if there are esters, they're overpowered by the pungent hops. If there are phenols, they blend in with the slightly earthy hop undercurrent. Looks like Three Floyds' touch is dominant here.

T: As you'd expect from FFF, the beer explodes with hops. It's citrusy, but with a unique mango-lemon twist instead of the traditional grapefruit-orange I find in the style. I like it. The back end reveals moderate earthy and pine bitterness that is tempered with pale malt sweetness. Exhalations are pure pine with a small peppery burst, but that latter part could be the power of suggestion. There is a small sweetness in the aftertaste.

M: This is medium-bodied; the carbonation is appropriate and gives the beer a creamy feel. It finishes dry, with a small amount of lingering oils.

O: This is solid. I don't know how I'd tell this is a Belgian IPA; if you gave it to me blind, I'd swear it was an American interpretation. Maybe it's the dryness. Either way, it's damn good.

on-tap, map room chicago

bartender : "you know, its very three-floydsy"

appearance: served in a nice unbranded tulip, slightly hazed orange body, creamy white cap - on par for what you would expect from a belgian ipa

smell: tropical fruit, bright citrus hops, pineapple, yeasty. as a hophead, its hard not to love anything hop-driven from 3F

taste: just lovely - very clean and fresh - dominated by tropical fruits and pineapple, citrus zest, pine, crisp belgian yeast, bubblegum, very mild spice. Good stuff.

mouthfeel: light and refreshing, good carbonation levels

overall: stellar

Pours a hazy amber, big cap of soapy white froth, good sticky lacing. Scent brings big amounts of citrus and tropical fruits with a heavy dose of pine, firm spicyness, sweet sugary malt backbone. Taste brings strong fruity hops, backed by spicy and lightly bready yeast component, malts sweet but not overly aggressive. Smooth, almost creamy body. Really nice beer with strong flavor and good balance between the components.

White head on a orange base. Crazy lacing, good head retention.

Aroma produces mostly citrus (a la Zombie Dust), very faint Belgian yeast characteristics.

More citrus with a bitterness that comes in at the end. "Fresh" would guess at 9%abv.

Highly drinkable althought this is one of my favorite style. For whatever reason this is much tastier than when I had it last summer on tap from FFF. Thanks egrace84 for the revisit!

Look - Reddish, tan body, Light tan, creamy, heavy head dissipates quickly. Lacing doesn't stick. It isn't opaque, but you can't see objects on the other side of it.

Smell - Bread. Pineapple. Alcohol.

Taste - Bubblegum in beginning then fruit. Bitter end.

Feel - Little carbonation. Doesn't feel too heavy.

Overall - This is a nice alternative to classic Floyds ales. It is worth trying. Only beer I've had like it is Le Freak.

On tap at the Hopleaf in Chicago.

Appearance - Really nice, long-lasting, white head over a hazy, golden-orange brew.

Smell - Gives off huge aromas of fruity citrus, pine, and floral - an explosion of hops. Nice bit of fruity Belgian yeast as well.

Taste - Fruity and yeasty, with lots of sweet hops flavour; bitter enough for excellent balance without being overwhelming.

This is a excellent Belgian IPA.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Three Floyds Brewing Company branded teku glass

Pours a deep golden amber capped by a two finger off white fluffy head. Excellent retention, bunches of sticky lacing. Huge notes of grapefruit, citrus, pine sap, flora, and fruity Belgian yeast. Opens with mandarin orange, grapefruit, pine sap, floral accents transitioning into light caramel and toffee notes. Light mustiness and fruity yeastiness midpalate. Finishes dry with bitter citrus rind, "juicy fruit" notes, and abundant clean alcohol. Heavier side of medium bodied; smooth and silky mouthfeel. Moderately carbonated. An absolutely wonderful brew and one of my faves from FFF. Highly recommended.

Review taken day it arrived in Feb 2014(2014 release)

22 oz(1 pint, 6 oz) brown FFF shaped bomber with a nice label. White with the description of the 'new' name and the passing of an employee in which it was renamed after. Blue, yellow, and reds outlining the man himself enjoying a smoke in some aviator shades. I really dig this label. Good of them to show their appreciation of the passing of a friend. Poured into a stemmed Belgian style tulip glass.

A - murky yellow golden-orange color that carries a slight cloudiness to it. Glows in the light. Beautiful. Light sediment floating about in the haze. Big off white head on the pour takes its time settling to a creamy layer of lacing leaving awesome stick. Exactly how a Belgian ipa should look.

S - citrus and fruits up front. Sugared grapefruit, zesty lemon, mango, juicy peach, orange, and sweet fresh pineapple. A little pine of floral hop notes creep up toward the middle before a grainy bread malt, banana, bubblegum and Belgian spice balance this nose to perfection. Belgian style yeast makes up the foundation and really does extremely well with the juicy fruits throughout. Like it was meant for one another. This nose is absolutely complete and just plain awesome!

T - another act of greatness here. Juicy citrus and fruitiness. Candied grapefruits, orange, mango and pineapple candy. Hint of pine and earthy floral like hops for a split second. Belgian yeast again is funky and adds even more class to Rich life. Clove and spice. Bread and grain malts. A hit of banana and bubblegum before a finish of more orange and pineapple fruitiness. Not quite to the platform of the nose, but still out of this world delicious.

M - big medium body and a world class thickness carrying a texture one only finds in FFF brews. Enjoyable and coats the mouth with Belgian inspired American ipa class. Highly drinkable with a hint of alcohol as it warms. Über drinkable.

O - Live A Rich Life a.k.a. Shark Pants as it was formally named is a sheer piece of brewing class. When FFF are bottling rotating ales of this quality they are a brewery that's hard to beat. I enjoyed this maybe too much as I've craved it since. Lets hope this one keeps finding its way into bottling distribution, bc its one of the best brews you'll ever get your hands on. Long live Rich Life.
