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).

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 This IPA pours a really thick and nice amber/copper with a fine-bubbled and very large, offwhite head. The hops are very noticeable and upfront, and they are laced with a piney bite and a citrus tinge. The alcohol is annoyingly noticeable. The middle consists of a tart maltiness - the sweetness is never very high in this beer. The end is that dirty, musky, somewhat metallic taste that is so characteristic of Denver brews. This brew warms badly.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Medium gold color with a thin head. Some slight citrus and pine resin in the aroma along with some sweet, fruity malt. Has a nice prominient hops character with strong malt underpinnings which lead to a well-rounded mouth feel.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Orangey hops aroma, colour of "another tequila sunrise," finger of cream head, remnants of lace. Citrus hops flavour, and a fine malt backbone. Very well balanced, full bodied, resiny, almost chewy, I think they put orange peels in this recipe, entirely too easily drinking. Fantastic! These guys make wonderful beer!!

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
355 ml bottle from Ølbutikken. Copper colored beer with off white head. Good lazing. Citrussy aroma. The mouth feel is almost syrupy with light carbonation - making it really enjoyable to drink. Sweet malty flavor with nice hop flavor and a long bitter finish. Very sweet and caramelly and could be more balanced. But still an excellent brew.

Amber orange , an intial sharp citrus smell, a nice piney hop flash in the mouth with a full malt sweetness in the aftertaste. Its amazing how the United States is really becoming a mecca for well done IPA’s. did us hopheads die and go to heaven?

ABUSEDGOAT (2413) - California, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Nice IPA. Hops dominate aroma obviously. Pours a hazy orange with a nice head. Fairly thin bodied. Not the best IPA I’ve had but easily one of the best. Their double IPA is superior, but this one is great too.

mephisto (1269) - TAIWAN - JUN 28, 2005
bottled, hazy amber w/ beige head. floral aroma w/ notes of hops and grapefruits. the taste is sweet and bitter, cloying..., almost too much of both.

CamdenD (1094) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 28, 2005
Almost stale aroma to this bee, but some floral and citrusy fumes do break through. Wonderful hazy orange color and the flavor of this beer is full and refreshing, a true IPA bang. The real nicety to this ale is the lingering aftertaste of wildgrass and melon. Beautiful.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2005
Nice shining orange-amber color with fine creamy light beige froth. This beer has a very interesting nose with woody, fruity and flowery accents. You can notice touches of geraniums, summer flowers, violets, herbs, caramelized nuts, nutmeg, honeyed accents and fine Armagnac aroma’s. The taste is smooth and malty with a soft honeyed kick of accacia, ripe stone fruits and cedar-wood. In the second fase the bitter accents are taking over. You can notice hints of parcely, sage, lely’s, green olives and loads of refreshing hops.

Gmku (294) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 28, 2005
A surprise! Was not expecting much more than an ordinary IPA, but this is some great stuff. Strong hop presence, rather grapefruity, piney. Beautiful color of copper or rust or mahagoney. Medium body, dry finish. Really really good.
