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 Urbainís 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 recently passed away, a portion of the proceeds from this beer will go to his family.

22 oz. bottle from Dunn4040. Pours a nice bronze, with a big, foamy, beige head. Big citrusy and resinous aromas, with some biscuity dough, apricots, and some yeasty, banana esters. The flavor is a strong, yet mellow, bitterness, with a nice malt and ester sweetness. Heavy body, sticky, and syrupy. Overall, this is a nice, well-balanced, and well hopped BIPA. The fruity esters donít kill the IPA, and the ludicrous hops donít kill the nice Belgian yeast.

Thanks drowland for share at homebrew club! Always love getting 3F. Big Belgian Double IPA. Big deep orange color. Very spicy hops with slight fruit, caramel, and bread coming through in the nose. Balanced taste with citrus hops, caramel malts, and some Belgian yeast. Pretty full and slick mouthfeel. Interesting stuff.

Rated on 6-01-2012 (Draft at Brew Haven Ticket Release Party-New Haven, IN) This draft beer has a small ivory head that mostly diminishes, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is yeast, pine, citrus hops, and caramel malt. The flavor is pine, citrus hops, sweet, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium-full bodied. This beer for the style is not overly hoppy tasting and is worth trying.

Live a Rich Life pours a strawberry amber, orange with a thick frothy beige head that lasts a good while. The aroma is dark fruit, floral, caramel and bread. The flavor is dark fruit, floral, caramel and bread. Interesting though that the Belgian element is more distinguished in the aroma than the flavor. Overall this is a solid beer.

Oly (53) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - MAY 2, 2014
The IIPA is much more prominent than the "Belgian" part. Aroma isnít strong, but has a nice smooth citrus hop character. Incredibly well balanced beer, with citrus hops and a bit of syrupy sweetness. None of the flavors are as intense as in many other IIPAs, but they are very pleasant. Very easy to drink.

Another fine offering. Good and hoppy and smooth. A little lacking in aroma but really solid.
