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).

12oz. bottle. Mildly hazy orange/amber color with a small off white head. PNW hop aroma with lots of citrus(orange and grapefruit), pine and a mildly sweet malt background. The flavor was quite well balanced for such a hoppy beer. The piney/citrus hops are still in the forefront, but there is also a nice caramel malt backbone that makes this a very enjoyable beer. Had trouble keeping it away from my wife.

THis is a good IPA. Strong hop aroma is well balanced by a mild maltiness and agressive hop bitterness. I like the fact I can get this beer in a large bottle. I am not a big hophead, but I do like this beer.

I like this IPA every bit as much as Stoneís. Just the right amount of hops. Nice head. Stays smooth all the way to the end. At $8.00 a sixer, a good value, too.

CapFlu (4781) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2006
(Bottle) Purchased at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY. Pours a medium, creamy foam white head with a clouded, highly carbonated orange body. Nose of Hi-C grapefruit hops. Tangy, bitter hops burst across the tongue to dance the Hi-C dance and moon the malt glands. This is hopmadness at its finest! Damn - I need this beer to slap me around some more...

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 7, 2006
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 wasnít bad, it definitely wasnít above average so there is some dissappointment. Pours a reddish-brown-broze color with a small head. Aroma is the usual hops but thereís 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.

GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2006
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.
