COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 recently passed away, a portion of the proceeds from this beer will go to his family. Try this beer and enjoy the Rich life

Hazy amber beer. Big pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and crispy. Hoppy nose. Minerals. Mild skunky hops. Columbus maybe. Followed by nice tropical fruits - pineapple, peach, tangerine and orange and then pine and grass. Mild hop spice. Sweet and bitter! Creamy malt. Mild yeast. Gooseberry comes out before the semi soft finish. Mild seltzer minerals and hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Very moorish and easy drinking. Efforless quality from Three Floyds.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2011
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy sour citrus hop aroma. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate alcohol bite at the finish. Very good brew that exceeded my expectations.

Bottle. Murky orange amber color, large tan head, nice lacing. Aroma of rising bread dough and summer fruits. Taste is similar, with significant character and complexity, better in bottle than on draft.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of alexsdad. Helluva extra, gracias. Bright, reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head and nice lacing. Very nice herbal, somewhat spicy, grapefruit/piney hoppy, tangy/spicy aroma. Intense, somewhat thick/syrupy, spicy, moderately resiny, light white wine, a bit estery, rich grapefruity flavor. Pretty delicious but a little syrupy and thick. Nice beer as usual from Three Floyds.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
Bang on DIPA. Yeast flavour exceeds the malt backing, well balanced. Intensive IBU and hop flavour. Great drinkability for a DIPA. Better than average. Big retained head. Above average mouthfeel.Bottle from FlandersNEd.

Bomber from a mystery donor. Pours hazy deep copper with 3-finger frothy off-white head that laces well. Nose is heavy piney hops, pineapple, tangerine, black pepper, caramel malt, and a slight funk note. Tastes citric, piney, with a big semi-sweet caramel malt bill, a lot of late fruitiness, and a complex dense mouthfeel. This one is great.
