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).

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2006 Bottle. Pours amber with some haze and a thin white creamy head. Faint aroma of malt, some bread notes, but hops seemed to have faded. Flavor of caramel, toffee, mild toastiness, and piney hops. Bitter finish, with some notes of tea and soap. Of the three IPAs I had, this weekend, this was the weakest. Lost Coast Indiga and Mendocino IPA were better IMO. This is still decent, but not worth the price I pay in TN.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2005
On tap. Poured a slightly hazy golden color, with a thin white head that lasted the whole experience. Aroma of bread and big hops. This is a really well balanced IPA, the marriage of malt and hops reaches near perfection in this beer. The only problem i had with this, was that it seemed a bit thin, at least to me. I would still drink this again, and again, and again.

Lubiere (12802) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2005
Hazy amber IPA with a thcik creamy off-white head. Overflowed upon opening. Bready malt in aroma with pinhey hops, a bit aged in character. In mouth, a classic IPA with a good malt backbone, biscuity, and floral hops, with noted citrus in finish, not overpowering. Medium to rich body, dry and sharp. Well balanced and pleasant. Just lingers pleasantly in mouth.

kfarrnd (113) - Oldsmar, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Bottle. Poured out a very enticing orangy-copper color, just a bit muddy, with an medium ivory head. Aroma was sharp citrus and pine. The overwhelming flavor was pink grapefruit, but had a nice sweet malt character initially then gave way to the grapefruit and bitter hops on the finish. Complex and full bodied on the palate, just the right amount of carbonation. The overpowering grapefruit flavor kept me from rating this as high a some of the other premium IPAs, but overall this was a very good beer.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - NOV 28, 2005
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.

Crit (3809) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2005
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.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2005
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.

One of the better bottled IPA’s I’ve had in a while. Hoppy and yummy, this is a great beer. Need to find this in 6 pack form.
