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).

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2009 2008-08-27, draught at Cockney Pub, Århus, 7-4-8-5-15=39
Golden color. Nice hoppy aroma, fruity. Very good flavor, a lot of fruity hop at first (grapefruit), then giving way to a strong and sweetish toffee; good body strength. Very good.

2008-08-08, draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, 7-3-7-4-15=36
Copper color. Sweet caramel aroma, with light fruity hop. Good round body, sweet caramel flavor, sweet toffee, very powerful hopping, quite resiny and lightly fruity. Very good.

Hazy orange color. Nice aroma: oranges, caramel, chocolate, light phenol. Good maltiness and very good resiny bitterness, well aromatic, more mellow than others. Very good!

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2005
Pours light amber with a creamy, off-white head, nice lacing. The aroma is citrus, caramel, toffee and cookie dough. Flavor is caramel, oranges, grapefruit and musty. The finish is bitter with a touch of soapiness. Medium-body, smooth texture, soft carbonation.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 25, 2005
Solid IPA. Lots of good strong hop flavors/ aromas. Sweet and bitter at the same time. Very smooth drinking, refreshing IPA. I would order this again any day.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2005
One pint, 6 oz brown bottle purchased from Armanetti’s, Mandelein, IL. Hazy orange ale having a small diminishing white head and spare lacing. Soft carbonation. Good fruity, caramel, and hop aromas. Medium bodied that starts with light sweet malt, citrus, and hop flavors. Finishes with light lingering hop bitterness and malt aftertaste. Well-balanced but skewed towards hoppiness but not extreme. Went well with my lasagna dinner. This is an excellent drinkable hoppy beer.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Red/orange with a foamy off white head that leaves lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is piney hops and sweet malts. Has a nice lush malt body. Flavor starts as sweet citrus and then changes to grassy hops in the finish. Quite bitter and slightly dry. It tastes closer to a double IPA than a regular.

Bjorn74 (3) - Copenhagen V, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2005 does not count
Excellent aroma of fir-needles and grass, with some sweet notes of malt. Not much head, but that might be pouring - a deep golden/bronze colour. A lovely combination of sweet and bitter taste, balancing towards the bitter. A very potent, almost burning, hop-experience, great for a hop-lover! A bit unbalanced in the overall flavour/palate picture.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Pours clear, light amber with a creamy white head. Citrus and pine in the nose. Citrus and pine in the flavor. Body is medium, doesn’t feel like 6.8 %. Bitterness hangs around a while. Pretty good.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2005
2003 Maverick bomber. One of those frustrating beers to pour. A huge creamy head blossoms no matter how gentle you are and takes forever to dissapate. Murky burnt orange color, perfect. Aroma and flavor have both mellowed out with the 3 or so years of age on this bottle. The malts are more discernable with the hops having lost some of their bite while becoming more refined. Still there is a crisp bitter presence throughout the beer more rich than pungent. One of the very best IPA’s, this one could give many a brewers double IPA a run for its money on flavor.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - DEC 11, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2008 12 ounce bottle. Tons of piney, resinous, hop aroma. Copper and gold, depending on the light, with a billowing white head. As the head fades, most of it clings to the side of the glass. Has to be the best lacing I’ve ever seen. Lots of spice, earthy hop flavor, with some of the typical grapefruit and caramel. Big time bitter. I bit puckering. Starts out sweet, and finishes dry, again, that is probably due to hops more than anything. Welcome in my glass anytime.

The aroma is superb. A complex mix of herbs, pine, citrus--all the good American IPA elements. The flavor is rich and smooth, even a little juicy, but not quite as complex as the aroma. This beer almost gets into IIPA territory, with its high alcohol and huge amounts of hops. Reminds me a little bit of Victory’s Hop Wallop, actually. I will certainly buy this again.
