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).

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2005
(Bottled the Second Week of November 2005) Six packs of this elixir just hit the shelves of my neighborhood store for $9.49. The bouquet is very green and the palate is very green also. Unfortunately, the head and lace are lackluster. The palate is very fresh, hoppy and earthy. This beer is all about the hops, because the hops dominate this beer on all sides

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy, orange/gold pour. Floral and citrus notes on the pour. A mellowed hoppiness, but definately an IPA. Refreshing and biting, very pleasent and balanced. Thanks Beervana for the bottle.

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.

2005-07-19, bottle, 8-4-8-5-16=41
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.
