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).

omhper (20452) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy amber, rich head. Grapefruity hop aroma. Dry and very hoppy. Straightforward and one dimensional, nothing but hop aroma, hop flavour and hop bitterness. The malt just acts like a foundation that is there, but shouldn’t be noticed. After many thousands of different beers simple ones like this should be slagged of by me, but I succumb and offer my soul to the god of hops. No matter how I try I can’t stop myself from loving it.

oh6gdx (21565) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2005
Bottled. Copper coloured, small beeige head. Strong fruity (citrus) aroma. Flavour is hoppy fruitish with some caramellish hints. Also some spices are present in aftertaste, kind of peppery kick.

Bottled
Golden dark honey color, small off-white head. Flowery hoppy nose. Sweet in the frontm flowery hoppy, not hoppied to extreme, so quite drinkable, but straightforward IPA. Not bad, but not extremely good either.

MIBRomeo (2569) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
sampled at the brewery during GABF. Pours an amber color w/ a tall off white head w/ some good lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of citrus and pine scents w/ a touch of carmel. Palate is lightly oily and well coated. Flavor is a well blended piney bitter w/ hints of grapefruit and carmel. A well done IPA

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 (Bottled) Hazy amber color with a small, bubbly head. Deliciously exotic-fruity, aromatic-hoppy nose with a hint of underlying toffee maltiness. Flowery, sweetish and slightly smoky, aromatic-hoppy, piney and exotic-fruity flavor with nicely balancing, somewhat grainy maltiness. Long, lingering, resiny-hoppy finish. Medium-bodied, astringent palate with medium carbonation. A very enjoyable, exotic-fruity IPA with grainy maltiness carrying it nicely. Good stuff!

Sregnar35 (1004) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2005
This is a nice IPA, but it isn’t great. It’s easy to drink, oily but not biting on the palate and it has a great piny hop aroma. It finishes slightly acidic with a bit of malt caramel sweetness. It just doesn’t have a hefty enough flavor to be great. Still very good.
