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).

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2006
35,5 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Great hoppy and caramel aroma also hints of nuts. Great tasty flavour of burned caramel and quite hoppy. Ends up very dry and bitter. A very nice tasty IPA endeed.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear amber body with a good white head. Aroma of hops and grapefruit, with an evergreen aroma with it. Flavor began with hops, grapefruit and a subtle caramel sweetness, but evolved into a bitter, evergreen flavor that I didnít love. Palate is ordinary. A good IPA, but not one of my favorites.

From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a notched bottled month and week date on right side of front label. Made a good appearance, poured a semi-cloudy copper with a large foamy pale tannish white head that reduced to a thin bubbly lacing. Had a big fresh piney and citric hop nose with a floral earthiness as well. A crisp, hoppy textured medium bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Piney and earthy hoppiness upfront, the bitterness balanced by fruity, lightly sweet maltiness, more of a gentle rolling bitterness on the tongue, and a dry grassy/hay hoppiness and subtle grainy maltiness in the finish. A highly quaffable and tasty AIPA, one of the better ones out there, at an affordable price, well worth seeking out.

Dark clear glowing amber. Great aroma. Thick head. Piney hops build to a grapfruit rind finish. Great hops punch in the mouth. Hops linger forever. Extremely dry. Tongue puckers lto the bitter dry finish ike with a dry Souvignon Blanc. Very drinkable. Almost no maltiness. I need a good balance and the palate was too dry without the malt finish but a fantastic example of superhopping. Hop hop hop.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Poured a hazy orange with small off-white head. Aroma was a combination of malty and hoppy. This was one of the best IPAs I have ever had.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - MAR 26, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours a murky coppery orange color with a medium sized, off-white head. Smells fruity, earthy, and hoppy. The beginning taste almost has a grapefruit taste, with a super hoppy mid and a smokey, malty finish. Average body and mouthfeel. Honestly this beer has many good elements but personally the taste is somewhat offensive. Iím probably not suited for IPAs, and I really canít stand grapefruit juice, which is what this beer mostly tastes like to me.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2006
Beautiful amber colour with a nice white head. Aroma with lots of grape fruits and the citric hops also dominate the flavour. Long dry end. All in all a very fine American IPA.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Deep orange pour with beautiful lacing and nice bubbles. Piney/grass aroma and flavor, with a nice malt backbone and balance. Maltiness actually attacks towards the middle with breadiness and grain settling into a nice resinous, bitter finish.

I almost forgot I tried this one. It was a highlight on Saturday. The description says it all. Thanks Sam for hooking it up.

The bottle poured a slightly hazy amber beverage with an average off-white head that was mostly diminishing and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was hop-huge. The aroma was like being in a pine forest with cotton candy and flowers mixed in for good measure. The body was quite full with average carbonation and a crisp, dry texture. The flavor starts off pleasantly sweet. In the middle it begins to turn toward the bitter side but never gets obnoxious. The finish is long, crisp and dry.
