On tap at Hops & Pie in Denver; poured into a pint glass.
Appearance - fairly hazy amber, with a thin off-white head. Lacing is thin but sticky.
Smell - more pine and grassy hops with a strong breast malt nose.
Taste - certainly more of the CO style IPA with more emphasis on the malt backbone. Enjoy the flavors here, but would prefer more citrus.
Feel - very balanced; competitive battle between hops and malt!
Overall - the Hops & Pie House brew (at least when I was there) brewed by local brewery Strange; I'd have again when I'm back, reminds me a lot of GD's Titan.

This one is brewed for Hops & Pie in North Denver by the new-ish Strange Brewing Company. Poured a clear amber color with a small amber head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine and light malt. On the palate, this one was medium bodied and smooth with flavors of malt and citrus (mostly grapefruit) with a somewhat bitter finish.
