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).

Ratman197 (9025) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2005
Pours a lovely reddish amber color with a small offwhite head. Pungent piney aroma entices one to take a sip.The aroma carries through to the flavor with a touch of citrus and a malty backbone.Makes an excellent session beer!

desurfer (1190) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2005
Clear amber body, tan head, nice lacing. Aroma of mild citrus, fruit, a tad on the sweet side. Flavor is chock full of biting hops, piney, pungent, but smooth and sticky sweet. Palate is a bit thin but coating and long lasting. Very good.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2005
UPDATED: APR 12, 2005 Thick head interspersed with large and small bubbles thoroughly integrated. Nice amber color and typical IPA lack of bubbles on the appearance. Aroma of an IPA/standard pale ale tends to have little variation between brands, and that rule holds here: highly floral-hopped, mainly of the Cascade variety. But the flavor of Titan stands out more like a standard IPA of extraordinary quality which is mellowed by a high-quality malt finish -- perhaps to a more satisfactory degree than I’ve ever come across in a beer slated as IPA. Though I dock it 2 Overall points for being somewhat out of category, this beer is great. Not to mention the fact that the alcohol is so very well hidden.

22 oz bottle. Very nice IPA with a full head and lacing along the glass. Plenty of Cascade aroma and flavor hops balance nicely with full maltiness. Overall, this is a very, very nice IPA.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2005
Pine aroma and nice bottle bubbles. Full-bodied IPA, with grapefruit. Nicely carbonated. Malts round out the finish. Would be happy with this all night. The hop and the whole hop including the leaf, tad of mint.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2005 Poured from a bottle. Amber color with a medium sized head. Very nice hop aroma with lots of pine notes and some underlying fruit. Hops are apparent in the flavor with a nice bitter hint of grapefruit and some apricot. I was surprised to find this in a GD mix 12-pack and I enjoyed it greatly.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - APR 8, 2005
Poured an amber color with a medium head. Hoppy pine and aroma. Flavor is heavy on the hops with a bit of sweet malt. Medium mouthfeel with a small amount of alcohol warm at the end. Nice IPA..

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2005
Orange in color with sweet fruity aroma. Dry taste in mouth with some hops. Not as hoppy as most IPA’S. Nicely balanced with a grassy clean finish.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 The Lure:
The soil from a hybrid forest offers pine residue, rich grapefruits and oranges. Dry-hopping is suggested by the brash hop leafiness.

The Festivities:
A hop cornucopia develops floral, citrusy, and resinous shades which are superbly counterbalanced by luscious honeyed and caramelized cereals until coniferous bitterness clinches this great glass of Americana.

Transcendence:
Teeming with lush produce, a garden shares its honesty.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2005
Strong orange-tangerine, herbal hop nose with some notes of cherries and an underlying sweet maltiness. Yeasty note is somewhat meaty. Opaque orange-tan with decent white head that recedes to cover and ring with light lacing. Plenty of yeast in suspension. Strong vegetal flavour with orange-flavoured hops that are herbal in character. Plenty of residual sweetness but malts and hops don’t seem to blend well for me and all in all, the green, leafy, vegetable character seems to overwhelm. Medium body with fair carbonationand creamy texture. Snifter, allowed to warm from fridge temp. Bottle (trade, Dec. 2004) enjoyed with Claude, MartinT and Rastacouere. Thanks, Kawa!
