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).

I had no expectations for this beer and was plesantly suprised by its quality. This beer poors an orange cloudy beer with particulate matter toped by a substantial off white head. Aroma is nice, bold pine hopps while the flavor is citrus, malty and well balanced for an IPA. For a rather modest amount of alcohol.

Hazy amber with lasting head.Nose is piney,with a touch of carmel malt.Grapefruit hop profile, nice lasting bitterness, lots of malt, great body. Actually has a lot of balance for an IPA, not one dimensional at all, actually relatively complex, one of their best offerings.

Pours a huge frothy amber head, minimal floral aroma. Heavily hopped which is balanced nicely with an abundance of sweet caramel malt. Very good beer.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Bottle: Not too pungent, the lack of aroma hides an IPA with a hoppy kick. Not as sweet a finish as I would have expected given the relatively high alcohol %. Good and crisp with a clean finish.

Pours a golden coppery color with a small white laced head. Aroma includes pine needles,hops,and citrusy grapefruit. Taste is grapefruity and piney with lots of hops present. An above average west coast IPA. Very refreshing.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy medium brownish amber with a small off-white head. Nose is full of citrusy and piney hop aromas, but also full of maltiness. Flavor. Hmm, strange balance of malts and hops. I think Id prefer this with less malt. Has the citrus hop flavor followed by a roasted maltiness that Im not crazy about... finish of bitter hoppiness lingers for awhile. In the top 96% of beer? Hah! Slightly above average at best.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2006 From the bottle

Pours a murky orange amber with an ample but short-lived white head.

Aroma is sweet grapefruit and a bit of pine; the flavor is buttered crumpet with marmalade, a strongly hopped IPA with a some diacetyl and a slightly metalic bitterness that cuts in early and lasts for a long time. Mouthfeel is good, but not exceptional.

I think this one is overrated. Its certainly drinkable, but in my book it doesnt rank particularly highly among IPAs.
