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).

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.

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Cloudy amber-orange beneath a dense, creamy light tan head. Luscious aromas of freshly cut grapefruit and pine needles backed by a subtle whiff of carmel and biscuit malts. Smooth, pleasing mouthfeel due to mild and finely beaded carbonation. Crisp and tangy citrus hop flavors dominate on initial taste followed by a subtle caramel, baked biscuit malt contribution. Lip-smacking bitter hop finish. Overall very nicely balanced and well done. Will be back for more!

Pours a straw color with a bit of a copper tint and a frothy white head - aroma of pine, citrus, biscuits - pretty standard IPA flavor, but it’s good - everything in the right places (crisp hoppiness up front, gradually making way for the solid malt backbone to make its presence known, finishing with a pleasant mix of the two, with a lingering hop bitterness) - this tastes a lot like my local brewery’s IPA (Blue Point Hoptical Illusion) - I would rather support my local boys, but this is tasty and worth drinking again.

This was a pleasure to drink after having a couple of beers I really didn’t care for. Had a pine forest aroma. Copper body with good head and layered the glass with lacing. The citrus hop flavors of IPA’s were the flavor. Refreshing beer after a couple of bad ones.

barleyPops (1141) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2005
bottle. looks amber-orange and the head... wow... almost like whipped cream sitting atop the beer in my glass. many underlying flavors behind the grapefruit aroma and flavor that just smacks you in the face. a somewhat piney dry bitter finish. a very good but not great IPA hop heads need to give it a try.

Dorwart (2382) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2005 Large frothy and creamy head of fine bubbles. Good head retention with light carbonation. Citrus, resinous and piney hops in the gloriously aroma. Little bit of buttered toast in there also. Color is a medium orange/amber. Wow. The first thing that hits me in the flavor, and in a big way, is a boatload of dry roasted peanuts. Very distinct. Again on the second swallow. Let me clarify. Taste distinctly reminds me of the red skins around the dry roasted peanuts. Bitter and dry and roasty all in one. Me likey! Plenty of hops and burnt biscuits. Little fruity at the finish with decent bitterness and a lingering dryness. Slightly sweet to offset the dryness in the body. A great IPA!

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Bottle: Beautiful amber color, mostly clear, with a medium, creamy, light tan head that lasts. Aroma is pine/orange/grapefruit hops, with some hints of butter, resin, and bread dough. Medium bodied, creamy mouth feel, light carbonation. Taste is an interesting buttery earthy hops up front followed by orange, grapefruit, sweet lemon, corriander, tart caramel malt. Finishes with plenty of hop bitterness, and a grassy pine flavor.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Bottle - beautiful citrus hop nose, but orange rather than grapefruit. I love that!!! Deep orange body with an off white head. Terrific flavor! Hercules’ little brother ... and that is a good thing! Slightly fizzy palate. Just a beautiful beer. Would love to try it on draft or cask.
