COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Divide brews Titan IPA for hop disciples -- independent beer drinkers seeking out robust, flavorful beers characterized by their abundance of hops, flavor, aroma and bitterness. As a big aggressively-hopped India Pale Ale, Titan IPA fills this bill -- beginning with piney hop aromas and citrus hop flavors, and finishing with a rich, malty sweetness that is carefully balanced with crisp hop bitterness. 65 International Bittering Units (IBUs).

Bottled. Amber colour. Citrusy mandarin nose. Light sweetish flavour. Seemingly with a perfect balance. Good, crispy and thorough bitterness.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of delicious fresh citrus hops -- oh yeah baby, this is the stuff that makes this HopHead a happy boy! There’s just enough malt in there to balance things out and it goes down nice and easy. A great IPA!

GregClow (2891) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2005
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry and tupalev - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Dark amber colour with a small head. Big hop aroma, big hop flavour - pretty much what I expected. The hops have an especially nice piney character, and there’s a good sweet malt backbone in there to hold things together. Very good stuff!

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2005
Poured golden with a creamy white head. Good head retention. Smell was really complex with citrus, graitfruit, caramel, vanilla and pinapple. Taste started a bit too bitter at first but then balanced out very nicely. Damn good IPA from Great Divide.

HogTownHarry (6101) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev - courtesy of me. Poured slightly hazy copper with a thin white head. Aroma of strong, resiny, oily citrus hops, some malt, bit of pine. Mmmmmmm. Pleasant taste of blended resiny hops / mild malt - the hops win! Creamy mouthfeel, decent body - very nice, really liked the resins.

Very very nice IPA! The nice thing about buying variety packs from excellent breweries such as Great Divide is that you have enough beer to get drunk with and still have one brew from each style left to rate when you wake up the next morning. That said, there’s nothing quite like a cold, crisp, well-hopped, well-balanced India Pale Ale in the morning! The citrusy fruitiness of this beer complemented my scrambled eggs nearly perfectly.

RazingDreamz (123) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Sweet, pineappley aroma. Slightly cloudy, rich amber color, moderate head. Starts citrus, bitter, piney aftertaste, long finish.

kyzr (1152) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Dark orange pour with a huge stacking head with a ton of lace. Big hoppy nose. Flavor is a well balance of caramelized malt to the hop. Really nice clean finish.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2005
12 oz bottle - Pours amber with a tall offwhite head that stays well and laces down the glass. Aroma is pine and citrus over light caramel malts. Flavor is very similar. The caramel malts are more pronounced in the flavor. The blend is beautiful on the palate. A very tasty brew!

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Bottled at The Map Room. Pours a hazy orange with a frothy medium head. Big citrus aromas. Large hops with a medium bitterness on the finish. A darn good IPA.
