2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I wonder if I got a bad batch of this, because according to the other reviewers this should have been great. Alas, that was not to be. In fact, there were two bottles at the tasting and no one even bothered to open it! While it wasn’t bad, it definitely wasn’t above average so there is some dissappointment. Pours a reddish-brown-broze color with a small head. Aroma is the usual hops but there’s some pineapple in it that makes it a bit funky. A bit to grassy, too sweet and not very well balanced. Great for hopheads.

bottle. Titan is a cloudy copper hue with a dense white head and leaves pretty lacing as I sip. The aroma is floral indeed with pine and orange peel. Very bright flavor with tasty, spicy hops, just a bit of chalk, and this is balanced fairly well with a caramel sweetness.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 Pours a deep golden orange with a small white head. Strong hoppy aroma with citric, melon and pine notes. Citric hop taste on a bittersweet malty body with a very bitter and dry finish.

Bottle. - Reddish golden colour. Spicy, hoppy nose. The taste pretty wellbalanced, with some piney, spicy hops there, and some malty stickyness in the background.- Pretty short aftertaste though...., but ok general impression.

Orange and pine. Intense bittermess with adequate malt to back it up. Reminds me somewhat of the Sierra Nevada winter celebration IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Rich copper amber color with a nice off-white head. Grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and pine flavor with some sweet malt backing. Nice bitterness, but fades too quickly making it easier to drink.
