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).

Copper color with a creamy beige head. Aroma of green hops, nicely balanced by some underlying caramel. Fairly malty flavor followed by some strong bitterness, the hops tended to lend more bitterness than actual hop flavor. Medium body works well with this beer. Very nice.

Tejas (872) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Lots of citrusy / flowery aroma. Begins with hop flavor then finishes with a surprisingly malty flavor. I didnít expect the malt flavor. Reminds me of an overly hopped amber ale. I like this.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 13, 2005
12oz. Bottle. Pours murky medium copper with a nice rocky head and lacing. Nice citrus, floral, and pine in the nose and flavor with a good malt background making it pretty balanced for an IPA. But that lingering bitterness tells me that it is an IPA and makes me want more.

Light copper in color with a thick, white head thatís rather rocky. Piney Simcoe like aroma (not sure if they used them). This is the hop aroma I truly love best. Wonderful, almost resiny mouthfeel. Great IPA balance if you know what I mean. In other words, killer hops with just enough sweetness to make you appreciate them. Finish is as hoppy as the aroma. Iím so glad we have this in sixers here in NM now.

hopdog (8882) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Poured a dark, hazy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of pine and grapefruit. Some light flowers in there as well. Starts off lightly sweet and ends with a nice bitter finish. Nice balance. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Very good IPA that I will definitely be drinking again.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - FEB 23, 2005
This beer starts out awesome but finishes average. Pours cloudy orange with a big white head. Huge aroma of grapefruit and pine. Taste is initially big grapefruit, citrus. Then follows with alcohol burn and pine. Nice lacing. Malty, burning afertaste.

Aurelius (4133) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Mellow toffee aroma. Terrible label, lightish honey amber PA coloring, pretty big head. Grainy, dry, marzen-like toastyflavor with medium-heavy hops. Medium-light sweetness. Doughy mouthfeel, not too much CO2. Overrated, but decent.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2006 Pours clear and copper colored with a small white but sustained head. Aroma of citrus, pine, caramel sweetness, malt, some madeira, a bit of cardboard and some musty old sock. Big upfront hop flavor with a tongue coating resinous quality. Unusual hop character that is woody and herbal with sharp bitterness. Good body and mouth feel. Seems somewhat unbalanced in flavor...will have to drink a few more. Probably deserves a better rating for draught. It almost seems like a different beer. Maybe they need a new bottling line?

Hoppy, slightly fruity, and somewhat sweet. Pretty good overall, but a bit too much for me. Nice color, though, too.
