Had this at Falling Rock in Denver. Not sure exactly what it was when I ordered it, so I'm going to mix my current knowledge with my initial reactions.

Pours a very light caramel color, mostly clear. Some wispy-ness throughout. Pretty good head. Not super creamy, nor soapy. Just about perfect

Aroma is IPA. Hops dominate the malt, yet it's not all that strong. I'm getting more earthy hops than citrus although grapefruit can be detected.

This one tastes more like an English IPA. Earthy and more buttery than some of the American IPAs. It's nice. The subtlety of the malt really eases the hops onto the palate.

A dryness on the end without all the pucker. This one would work really well with some spicy food to enhance the bite.

Description on bar card:

Beer for Brit - 6.2% ABV
With the support of Brewer's Supply Group and Roy Farms, HBC presents its latest I.P.A. offering in tribute to our friend Brit Antrim who was recently paralyzed in a workplace accident. In concert with Pizza Port, Andersen Valley Brewing Company, Great Divide, Lost Abbey, Avery Brewing Company, Cambridge Brewing Company and Maui Brewing Compan, HBC will be donating $2.00 from every pint sold to benefit Brit's family.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a good white head and clingy lacing. Nose is mostly pine and fresh hops. Taste is a bite of hoppy pine goodness with some malt for balance. Mouthfeel is slightly bitter and dry on the finish. Slick and resiny. Refreshingly clean. Enjoyable and each pint helps the cause.
