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).

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Aromas of pine with some citrus and apple, smelled pretty fresh and yummy. Copper-orange in color with a bright white head and decent lacing. Flavor is earthy caramel with lots of pine hoppiness/bitterness, though it isn’t as bitter as some IPA’s. Medium full body, soft carbination, slightly metallic feel which livens it up. Dry finish.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Rich aroma of pine and citrus along with dark caramel and fruit. Orange amber color, rocky off-white head. Pronounced, somewhat harsh bitterness, resiny hop flavor, just detectable caramel malt. Medium body, some hop-derived astringency. A big IPA with intense hop character and bitterness.

jzzbassman (1516) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Poured with a disconcertingly huge rocky head that just wouldn’t go away. I’m a big fan of GD’s big beers, but this was a little off the mark in the bitterness at the end. Compared to the Hercules, its bitterness was not as appetizing. A powerful IPA though.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Beautiful, dark amber. Filtered and clear with a small, fine and very creamy head. Fruity, hoppy nose. Fat, almost sticky, body with loads of malt. but being an IPA this of course is a hop-show with the hops completely taking over the scene. A crossfire of hops - both the aromatic and the bitter ones. But it ends intensely bitter - albeit not exactly suffocating as the same brewery’s "Old Ruffian". 290505

Copper colour with an off white head. Hoppy aroma with a citric note. Very dry and hoppy flavor, becomes more fruity towards the finish.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2009 Bottle poured a nice dark amber with good thick head and heavy sticky lacing. Nice strong aroma of hops and citrus. Flavor is citrus and hops with a sweet finish. Very good easy drinking IPA!

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2005
Bottle. Golden-orange with small bubbly head. Heavenly fruity-hoppy aroma, peach, apricot, melon, grapefruit, little resinous, harsh, bitter finish. Light to medium body. Nice on a sunny friday evening. Thanks Jeppe and Jens.

1FastSTi (3340) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2005
The aroma has a lot of citrus in it. Notably lemon, apple, and grapefruit hops. There is also some bready malts in the aroma. The beer poured to a GIGANTIC frothy creamy looking whitish head. Looks like the ice cream when you make a rootbeer float. The body is copper colored with lots of slow carbonation rising. Lacing is awesome. The flavor is bitter and sweet. Very refreshing. Lime and grapefruit with caramel malts appear in the flavor along with lots of grassy hops. There’s hints of peanuts from the shell that you taste initially that get hidden immediately by the hops. For some reason those 65 IBUs show their face in the palate more like a 120.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Very nice hoppy aroma, citrus and pine, some grapefruit. Orange to amber colored brew, with a thick creamy white head on top, looks perfect in this North Coast shaker. The first that hits you is a very clean hop flavor, citrusy, very tangy, leaves a very nice bitterness in the mouth. Very tasty IPA!

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Bottle. Orange-amber with a slightly hazy look, light white head and lacing. Fruits galore in this one, with apple and orange jumping out in the aroma over a light caramel base. More fruit in the body, including berries and peach, finishing mostly bitter with light carbonation and mediumish body. Could use a bit more malt for balance maybe. Another well made west coast IPA.
