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).

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 (6064) - 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.

kyzr (1150) - 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.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange/amber, medium white head, and a spree of initial bubbles followed by very few. Very piney hop nose, some soapy aromas, woodiness, and some sour yeast. Very nice sweet malt backbone to this beer, much like the other quality IPA I’ve had. Citrus (grapefruit), resin, woody hops in the forefront, and finishes with a dry very satisfying bitterness. Tasty, Tasty, Tasty!!

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Pours a semi-clear light red from the bottle with a thick, foamy white head that lasts and stays around the edges. Smells rather hoppy, but not overwhelmingly so. Tastes quite hoppy, not bitter and not too dry. Pretty good.

2003 Maverick. Pours a typical copper orange with some decent thick off white head. Aroma is lots of piney and citrus hops, and somewhat creamlike. Taste begins quite dry and the hops leave a nice bite on the tongue, but the beer begins to sweeten up towards the end as the large amount of malts in this one show up and take over. Hoppy and floral, with good caramel malt smoothness. Medium bodied. I like this one.
