3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle consumed June 2014 while visiting Bloomington, IN. Amber pour with a decent khaki head, mild lacing. Big hop aroma, grapefruit, mild pine, some bready doughiness, not an overwhelming presence of Belgian yeast, lightly sweet and fruity, estery. Okay flavor, a touch sweet for me, grapefruit, pine, bready, a bit of caramel, candied orange peel. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 don’t kill the IPA, and the ludicrous hops don’t 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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
