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).

Duke (117) - New York, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Hazy amber with a good off-white head. Sweet fruit doughy and something strange in the aroma. Palate is a bit sticky for an IPA. Not as good as rated.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Thanks to btg for the bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber. Medium sized white head, somewhat fizzy. Citrus and pine hop aromatics, with a malty sweetness. Piney nose, quickly enveloped by a big body syrupy malt flavor. Intermingling are muted citrus notes with a solidly malt framework. Finish fades to a crispness with a pleasing bitterness. Mouthfeel is full, perhaps a bit on the thick side.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 5, 2005
bottle from brickskeller. aroma is a little nutty, but mostly piney hops. this is nice. the malt here is a nice balance for the hops. hops are a bit too piney, but otherwise a very solid IPA, better than i expected from great divide.

Amber colored with a medium sized off white head. Nice Citrus and pine hop aroma. Taste is mostly citrus and pine, balanced nicely with some caramel sweetness. A well done IPA

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
Hazy and light amber in colour. The citrus and malt aromas are the strongest, with pine notes backing things up. Loads of white grapefruit and sweet malt flavors. Good up-front bitterness, but it trails off a bit a the end. A little too sweet for my taste, but a solid West Coast IPA to say the least.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 This beer, although not as impressive as their Double IPA is a solid example of an American IPA with the common citric/herbal hop character. There is a touch of sweetness and a nice balance. Nothing here that surprises, but just a well made IPA. It goes for around $10 a six pack here, so not really a good value for what it is, but well crafted nontheless.

willblake (2652) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2005
04.26.05 12oz bottle thanks to maibockaddict. Looks like an IPA on the pour, hazy amber with medium tan head and instant lacing. Aroma is big and piney, hints of citrus, maybe a bit sweet. I’m reminded of DFH 60min, although I haven’t had that stuff in a long time -- maybe it’s just the green label throwing me off. Lawn clippings. Flavor is mostly piney with caramel, chocolate touches, lots of grapefruit pith. Hops are certainly the fat kid on this teter-toter. Nice stuff, thanks Dave!

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2005
A classic US style IPA with bags of pine resin hop presence throughout. Pleasantly sharp grapefruit accented finish. Although its not exactly subtle, I didn’t find it by any means overpowering. I like it. Bottled at the London Joet gathering, January 2005.

looks awsome. light red color. one finger white head dissipates quickly and leaves some light lacing. smells of hops and malt. taste is piney and citrisy and definatly hops. another good beer from great divide.
