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).

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Poured a light copper with an off-white head that laces nicely down the glass. I couldn’t get much on the aroma, but it could just be my allergies. I did detect some citrus and notes of pine. It’s a little sweet on the tongue, with a nice clean crisp hop character. Citrus, pine, sweet malts, and light fruit on the tongue. Nice lingering aftertaste. This is a good IPA. Deffinately worth the time.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5188) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2006
This is a rather nice IPA. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a chestnut color with a large tan head. There is a strong fruity hop aroma. The flavor is strong sweet malts with a strong fruity hop presence and a light floral hop element. The body is rather thick. The hops linger on the palate very pleasantly with nice sweet malts. Very good.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 12, 2006
Bottle. Pours reddish gold with creamy white head. The aroma is pineapple hops and a touch of malty sweetness. The flavor is mostly bitter piney hops, but there is sufficient sweet malt backbone to hold it up. Not too bad.

mjg74 (2632) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2006
Bottled. Pours a Light golden/reddish color. Aroma is somewhat hoppy and floral. A little sticky. Bitter right up front with a hint of sweetness. What can I say? All of the classic hoppy IPA qualities are there. Nice bitter IPA. Lingering bitter finish.

NosirIwont (2041) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours a beautiful golden amber with a smooth off-white head. Nice sweetish citrus and apple hop aroma. Flavour presents hops at first and then the bitterness kicks in, followed by a smooth maltiness with faint licorice notes. Bitter and dryish finish with remote apple notes. Nice! 12-01-06.

phiconners (149) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Nice copper/orange pour. Strong hops flavor, above average IPA. But for the money I would go with Stone or Dogfish Head.

zug4abby (287) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Picked this up at Marty’s Liquor in Boston. Pours a slighty hazy golden color with a small head and tiny amount of lacing. Aroma is light and slighty spicy/fruity. Flavor is slightly grassy and kind of hoppy. I enjoyed the hop presence in this beer and would drink it as a session beer, it’s just not fantastic though!

Wow, sharp hop bitterness quickly fading into a slight malt flavor finished with more hops. I like! Titan’s probably my favorite pale ale, due to the hoppiness. On another note, Great Divide makes some damn fine brews, they’re probably second in my list of favorite micros, behind New Glarus.

ChazMania (658) - Pasadena, California, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Bottle. This is a tasty IPA. Full bodied flavor, aftertaste is all over, from the roof of my mouth, cheeks, and tongue. Has the nice, piney, citrus based hop flavor. Highly recommend for IPA heads.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Bottle. Copper appearance, slight haze with a small but frothy white head. Aroma is hoppy, slight pine and strong citrus--almost fruity in the combination. Flavor is reverse, the citrus is mild and pine is strong, and finish is malty. Grassy aftertaste. Very good beer.
