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).

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.

JoshuaB (474) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2005
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.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2005 12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep gold with a persisting white head, then BAM!!! A tremendous hop aroma, followed by a spicy hops bite on the palate. Medium malt body and sweetness that doesn’t quite balance the strong hop character. A lingering bitter finish with a surprising undercurrent of faint sweetness. I really like hoppy IPA’s, and this is a good one.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Poured a dark gold color. Light hop aroma with a caramel malt backing. Flavor was the opposite caramel malty with a citrus hop backing. Hop flavors continue through the finish.

Pours a rich amber with a pretty little white head. Nose is nice and hoppy, very piney and citrusy with subtle malt sweet notes. To drink, this beer is a pleasure. Not as fun as their hercules, but good none the less.
