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).

vyvvy (5462) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Pours cloudy amber with a generous soapy light tan head with good retention and lacing. Mainly malt aroma, very thick musty caramel with traces of caramel - quite British. Medium / full bodied with quite a bit of soft carbonation. Taste is between a British and American IPA. Starts with caramel musty malts and spicy hops and finishes with citrus and piney hops aspects that is quite resiny. Nice IPA.

gferd (99) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Wonderful piney hop aroma. Dark copper color, a bit darker than most IPA’s. The citrus hop flavorwelcomes the taste buds initially and an even sweetness hits the back of the mouth leaving a great after taste. Very surprised it only rates a 65 on the IBU scale. Definitely a top of the line agreeively hopped IPA.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2009 (Bottle at The Rover, Göteborg) Pours a hazy orange/amber with a white head. Aroma of piney hops alongside some citrus/orange notes. Flavour starts with bitter pine, continues with pineapple and finishes with a malty, nutty sweetness. Some kiwi is also present. Good, soft afterbitterness. Spicy. Well balanced.

Theis (14974) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2006
Bottle at Ølbaren. Earlier bottle at home. Actualy, there is not much to say about this brew, it all is in the "Commercial Description". But I might as well repeat what i feel... light amber colour. Hoppy fresh, piny, citrus nose. Sweet malty, caramel, and hop in the taste, nice hoppy finish. A almost perfect IPA.

droopy49 (97) - Lancaster, California, USA - JUN 8, 2006
12 oz bottle courtesy of SpringsLicker. This poured a light amber color with a medium-sized, slowly diminishing head. Aroma is midly hoppy with floral cascade notes. Initial bitteness hits the palate with a good bitter aftertaste as well. Medium-bodies, smooth and very drinkable. A good session IPA.

eaglefan538 (3016) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 7, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 I love finding IPA’s that I enjoy, cuz everyone and their brother’s IPA just doesn’t do it for me. This one poured a nice orange color with a very generous head and a lot of lacing while drinking. The aroma was all hops, some resinous scents under light pines and citrus, light florals. A bitter caramel orange type flavor in the malt base. No one hop aroma or flavor hijacked this one but citrus was the feature (without being a bunch of grapefruit). Really well done, as the flavor was much of the same with a nice malt base/backbone under/behind it all. Mouthfeel was moderate, typical for the style, with some carbonation.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2006
Wow this IPA could stand up to many IIPAs for bitterness! Very attractive golden beer with lasting clumpy head and lacing. Strong lost in the forest aroma. Strong aggressive hop flavour and bitterness with a substantial malt base. Hops demand attention. The malt tends to wards syrupiness.

MrEcted1 (144) - Wheat Ridge, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Slightly overrated in my opinion, but not a bad IPA. Pours an attractive amber hue with a nice head, subtle lacing. Pretty standard as far as IPAs, good hoppiness, nice citrus aromas and flavors. Nice piney notes on both the nose and the flavor, floral notes come through as well. Not a wicked in your face type of IPA, but also not weak at all. Well balanced between hops and malts.
