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).

jercraigs (8294) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2006
Bottle. Dark golden amber with a good sized creamy white head. perfumey resiny hops and mild alcohol presence in the aroma. Oddly resiny flavour profile with a mild leafy celery quality that once notied seems to grow exponentially in both the aroma and flavour as the glass goes one, presumably aided by warming. Smooth but average palate. Very interesting, and not a conventional IPA. I think this was from Probiere.

zombywoof (455) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 23, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2006 This IPA’s aroma could be more out there but the taste is outstanding: fruit, floral, spruce all balanced with a sweet/bitter finish.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JAN 23, 2006
Bottle. I always had a soft spot for Great Divide so maybe my rating is skewed. However the beer is simply excellent. It pours amber and orange with an off white head. excellent lacing and the head is long lasting. Aromas are complex and powerful, I can discern herbiness, hoppiness and a hint of caramel. The flavor is equally outstanding. It starts with a hint of herbs and a very bitter note. The finish is longlasting and continues on the hoppy bitter theme. This beer is not as flowery as other IPAs it is much more in your face. The body is medium to full with a dry texture.

cweston (11) - Kansas, USA - JAN 17, 2006
This is a very nice IPA that clearly subscirbes to the more-is-more theory of hopping (I’m guessing Chinook and Cascade). Nice floral aroma, big grapefruit flavors. Very bitter but well balanced. I liked this much better with food (think bold and spicy--it was great with BBQ) than on its own.

alobar (2999) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2006
Cloudy orange color/amber color with a hoppy aroma. Taste is heavy on the hops with a citrusy aftertaste. Decent IPA. Definitely drink this again.

aracauna (3191) - Georgia, USA - JAN 23, 2006
Pours a clear copper with a medium head. Hoppy aroma, resiny, almost like celery at times. Nice malty backbone. The bitterness is forward but tingly instead of harsh, although it tilts slightly toward harshness. Not a bad IPA. There are better out there, but this one doesn’t disappoint.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2006
[bottle] Sweet hop aroma, awesome color. Red/copper with a small head.Citrus flavors dominate immediately.. then malts. Finishing with with a nice bitterness. Overall a fine IPA.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2006
A good spice aroma with heavy hints of spruice and other pines. Beautiful golden body with a excellent head for an IPA. Very bitter as is to be expected, similar in many respects to Stone’s Runiation.

Dogfish120 (143) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle: Hazy yellow with small creamy head which dissipates quickly. Nice lacing. Good initial hop aroma, a distinct fuit came through after a second smell. Mouthfell is almost perfect, very well balanced , ibu’s come through near the end. Hints of lavendar, lemon and other fruit near the end. Alch is almost not noticable. Very well done

bb (7255) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 24, 2006
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.
